A nice hour on the main canal in Amsterdam
, Jun 2020
Short but sweet! recommend with a hot/sunny weather. The boat is very beautiful and quite comfortable. Onboar you can buy drinks at a bar price. The captain is young and funny but he also gives space for intimacy and quietness
Would go again

Nice host and hostess. The tour was short but full of information that was new even for a dutch person.
You won't regret

Very nice little tour for good price. It's open air silent. The skippers are young, dynamic and professional. It is a pleasure to listen to them when they show and explain about architecture, people, laws and Amsterdam.... in several languages. Grab your drink and enjoy the trip. Thank you for this experience. Captain Armando de Gregori

A nice way to see the canal. Comfortable seats with blankets. The staff was friendly and funny! I would highly recommend this tour opposed to the big boat tours, more intimate
Comfortable and Interesting Canal Tour

Very pleasant and interesting canal tour. Information given was well presented. Perhaps consider some more detailed information about how and when the canals were constructed. Pick-up was in a central place and easy to locate. Smaller boat, with comfortable pillows made the 1 hour canal tour very enjoyable.
Best Canal Cruise in the Dam!

I live in Amsterdam for a few years now and during that time I've gone on canal tours with a few companies to accompany visiting friends, but this was hands down the most "gezellig" one. The one hour flies by with the drinks flowing on board and the captain and host giving you a brief history and fun facts about the houseboats and the unique Amsterdam architecture. The number of guests on board was not massive so it felt very cozy. The hostess and captain were exceptional in keeping the guests engaged but also making sure everyone had their own moments to take in the scenery (and if you're lucky like us, the gorgeous weather). I have been recommending this to anyone visiting Amsterdam since then. An absolute highlight.
Couldn't hear even half of the commentary

The couple was nice but we could not hear even half of the commentary. It was not comfortable to sit in the boat. Sadly, we would not use it again.

I was very disappointed that the tour name misleads you to believe it’s anAnne Frank tour, but it is not. Also the residence treats tourist horrible. They are so rude. Nothing like London or Paris.
