About Us

our story

Stephan and Pochani have always had a love for history and the Amsterdam canals. Their love of the water led them to purchase a canal slope 10 years ago and thus, sparked their passion for leading tours of the canals. They made time between work, raising two young children, and volunteering in the city to bring their friends and family on evening dinner cruises, day cruises, and Summer evening swims. It wasn’t long after that they founded Sloepen Amsterdam Canal Tours and began their journey of sharing their love of Amsterdam with tourists and locals!


In 2018, they decided to offer their Boat Amsterdam tours on Airbnb Experiences and soon after became the #3 Dutch experience in the Netherlands. Five-star reviews and word of mouth soon spread, and Sloepen became busier than ever. This led to the ambitious purchase of another small boat company in 2019, to increase their fleet size and offer more tours. Included in this purchase was a gorgeous 1930s Saloon boat, the Britannia II. Sloepen was relaunched as Amsterdam Boat Trips and the rest is history! 


We are incredibly proud of our fleet and fantastic crew of knowledgeable and friendly hosts and skippers. As a team, Amsterdam Boat Trips is sure to bring you a memorable and fun canal cruise!
