Had an amazing canal tour with the captain and guide onboard! There were only 2 other ladies onboard with us which makes the tour very cosy and nice. It is a rather small open boat as compared to other operators which have huge boats & a glass overhead. Prefer this as it has better view & smaller group (I think the boat probably can only fit up to 20pax in full capacity?) They also offer drink on board with reasonable price. You can purchase it onboard. We had one glass of white wine and one glass of rose wine for 9.5€. The boarding area is not prominent, and we almost missed it as it does not have an obvious stand/booth. So glad we didn't as the experience was really good & informative.

FR: Très belle balade sur les canaux d’Amsterdam. En petite comité, bien plus chaleureux qu’à 50 et surtout, non pas une voix pré-enregistrée mais une personne a qui on peut en plus poser des questions. Je recommande vivement. EN: Really beautiful boat trip on Amsterdam’s canals. With a small group, much warmer than a 50-person group and mostly, not a pre-recorded voice but a woman ready to respond to our questions. I strongly recommend.

We had booked a tour with drinks included. It was a great tour and the tour guide and schipper were very nice and told us interesting information about the city and some of it's buildings. Due to the weather it was very busy on canals but our schipper Willem Jan maneuvered us very skillfully through the canals of Amsterdam I highly recommend getting drinks included as well as it can get quite warm on the boat when it's sunny.
