    Captain Storm was a terrific guide. He was personable, knowledgeable, and a charming host. The tour itself was incredible - the canals of Amsterdam are rich with culture and history. I felt that this tour truly was one of the best canal cruise options because of the unlimited snacks & drinks and the small-group atmosphere, as well as because of Captain Storm and the route he took us on. The boat was also beautiful. I’m very pleased i booked this tour for me and my boyfriend’s 5 year anniversary celebration instead of a private boat - it was much more enjoyable than that i think.

    Great Experience
    Marilyn_B, Sept 2023
    What a great time and food. Pieter, our guide was excellent. Very friendly & knowledgeable. It was a small group of 12 people and was very relaxing time. We thoroughly enjoyed the Dutch cheese & bitterballen. The day was very windy so really appreciated the windows on the boat. Would certainly recommend this tour.
    Horrible Canal Tour
    Robin_S, Sept 2023
    Worst tour I have ever been on. Operator was dull, barely pointed out any landmarks and when he did, we had often already passed them. Nearly hit a couple of other boats. Spoke to those on boat about personal things such as their job, family, politics. At times just cruised and said nothing at all. We learned more about the city in a half hour walking tour from our hotel than we did on this canal tour.

    Our canal experience
    James_H, Sept 2023
    Enjoyable but not great value for the cost. Basically a boat ride with few significant highlights. Captain talked nonstop and could barely be understood. Invest in an inexpensive sound system. Also improve focus on important sights and reduce personal anecdotes.
    James_O, Sept 2023
    The tour was great and the guide was informative and lots of fun. We found the time on the boat very relaxing I highly recommend this tour
    The Best Canal Cruise
    Paula_L, Sept 2023
    Captain Eric did amazing job of piloting the boat around most of Amsterdam canals. We had previously gone on a canal tour with one of the huge boats (Love) and it was so disappointing. Very crammed full and so hot because they would not open the roof. Captain Eric's boat was all open, clean and welcoming. We loved the snacks,especially bitterballens ! I would highly recommend paying a little extra for a truly perfect look at Amsterdam !! Book with Captain Eric , you will not be disappointed !!!
    Captain Storm was amazing
    jennifer_P, Sept 2023
    Captain Storm was the perfect tour guide for our cozy canal tour! It was very exclusive with about 10 of us! Lots of history and fun facts! He was very knowledgeable and a super fun personality for this experience! Unlimited wine and beer was AWESOME! Would do this again!
    Fantastic time with Captain Storm
    Alison_K, Sept 2023

    Perfect amount of drink, food, and history. This was an evening cruise and was a perfect way to end the day.
    The Best
    Barbara_M, Sept 2023
    Captain was a wealth of knowledge and very personable. Recommending this tour to my friends without hesitation.
    Best one!
    Jessica_M, Sept 2023
    We had the best time on this canal cruise! The snacks and drinks were perfect for a relaxing float through the canals. Our guide was excellent as well. I’ve been on other canal cruises in Amsterdam and this one was by far the best!
    Awesome afternoon

    Sunset canal cruise
    gregory_b, Sept 2023
    Experiencing sunset and gliding under the lighted bridges was awesome. Eric was a wonderful, knowledgeable and gracious captain.?
    Great small group tour
    Frederick_B, Sept 2023
    Guide was great. It was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the city. The small boat could get to places bigger boats couldn't.
    10/10 recommend
    Alicia_F, Sept 2023
    Great tour, loved doing the small group, Erik is very knowledgable about the city and has family ties to the history which made it very personal
    I will be back!
    Angella_R, Sept 2023
    Captain Storm is just the right person for the job. Enjoyed his humor and storytelling. Glad that it was 2 hours; not rushed! Just perfect for me!!
