We had a great time touring Amsterdam via the canals on our first afternoon in the city. After a long walking tour, our feet were hurting and it was so welcomed to sit in the boat, eat and drink, and take everything in. We really...More

We had such a good time with Brian, our captain, when we went on the canal tour. It was nice, informative and very relaxing to go along the canals while Brian told us about the places we passed.Super and well worth the money.

We loved our tour with Brian. He was welcoming, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the city. He is an amazing ambassador for Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour particularly early in your visit as it provides a great orientation to the city.

Our trip exceeded all expectations. We were sailing in a fairly small boat (powered by electricity) and the atmosphere onboard was fantastic. The skipper (Pap himself) freestyled all the way in an entertaining way. Thank you!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
