      Small group is the way to go.
      So many different options to choose and booking a Canal cruise, but this one was just a winner for us. We really liked the idea of a smaller boat, open air cheese and wine while listening to a very knowledgeable tour guide take us through history and beautiful sites. This does not feel like a big company tour. It feels very personalized. We recommend it highly .

      Wonderful experience on the canals of Amsterdam
      Wonderful 2 hours on the canals of Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour. The boat was beautiful and Yannick is an amazing host that created a fun atmosphere for all of on board while sharing kots of information about Amsterdam. It was one of the highlights of my 2 days in the city.

      An amazing time.
      This is a great way to see some of the city while saving the skin on your feet. It was a cozy boat, built by them, only allowing 18 people. There is a great lounge seating area at the front and benches down the side. Our skipper Bas and the Co-owner of the company Lady, apologies for not fermenting her name, were very professional and personable. They would answer any questions you had, even about the 🦜. It was a little cool for the 1545-1745 trip but they had plenty of blankets on hand. The snack plate was great with meats, cheeses, fruits and stroopwafel. We only partook in soft drinks but there were adult beverages available. The views were great and boat traffic wasn't bad except for those not knowing the customs and courtesies of boating in the canals.

      Wonderful Experience
      It was a very relaxed atmosphere on the canal cruise. It included a genuinely nice snack try for each table. The wine, beer and soda selections were excellent and reasonably priced. Both the guide and the boat captain were well versed in Amsterdam history and architecture. I have been on other Amsterdam canal cruises, and this was the best to date.

      Highly recommended canal cruise
      We loved this tour. We chose it because we wanted a two hour cruise. The included drinks were delicious and well worth the additional money. The kind crew were informative, fun and engaging. Snacks were also a treat! We wanted to say aboard and do the next one!

      Intimate Canal Tour
      Very pleasant tour through canals. Skipper and guide were most personable, entertaining and well informed. Small group on a just right sized boat was a real advantage. The other tour boats we saw probably had 5 times the passengers. This was much more intimate. Strongly recommend.

      Excellent Experience, Highly Recommend
      Absolutely fantastic. If you’re going to take a boat cruise through Amsterdam, which I highly recommend, take this one. We saw other boats going by, and they weren’t close to as nice nor did they offer as much. This was a fantastic find as we thoroughly enjoyed our time on board. We honestly thought about doing it again the next day we enjoyed it so much! Note, please get the package with the drinks included. You won’t regret it.

    There are many canal tours on offer in Amsterdam, but this one was exactly right for us! Its a relatively new company (going about a year) run by a charming couple who have been doing this for a long time. Their passion for doing it properly was evident from the very start and continued throughout the 2 hour trip.
    The boat itself is comfortable and was ideal for the uncertain weather conditions. Each couple was presented with a very tasty plate of dutch nibbles to enjoy during our time. Drinks were chargeable but this meant that passengers had the choice of what they wanted and it was all good quality.
    Our guide was amazing, not only steering the boat expertly but also giving the most informative and interesting talk throughout. There wasn't any question that he couldn't answer and we gained so much from his knowledge.
    This trip was excellent value for money, and next time we return we'll go on their evening canal tour.

    Had a great time on the canals! I would recommend they use microphones though.. we were next to some very chatty French people so missed a lot of what was said.. I'd also like more fun facts and I threshing history included next time, but other than that we had a smooth driver and it wasn't too busy on the canal.

    The canal cruise with Will was a highlight to our trip to Amsterdam! The boat was gorgeous and comfortable, the snacks delicious and plentiful and a great selection of beer and wine to choose from. We lucked out due to the slower season and were the only three on board, along with one other guest, so the tour felt private. Will’s storytelling was perfectly paced and he indulged all of our questions with charisma and kindness. He was also very kind to our 4-year old on the trip and made sure she had a great experience too. I can’t recommend this company enough, especially compared to the huge canal boat experiences with audio tours we saw online. This tour was beautifully customized for us, on a luxurious boat with a knowledgeable live guide and we found ourselves wishing we could go again! Thank you!

    My wife and I had a wonderful time on this MANA tour of the canal and Light Art displays. The boat was in great shape and our guides were tremendous hosts. Babette was super nice! I'm glad we went with this tour as there are a lot of cruises to choose from. You won't be sorry you picked this outfit.

    Incredible tour of the city, we had an amazing time and easily could have stayed on longer than the two hours scheduled. Compared with many of the other tour boats in the city ours was small and more intimate, but the Voyage team purposely allows a small number of guests on the boat so everyone has plenty of space. The boat itself is also very nice and extremely comfortable. Our guides were very knowledgeable of the city and answered all of our many questions throughout the ride. We would recommend the all inclusive drinks option if you plan on having more than one drink. Overall, an incredible experience and amazing value, we would have happily paid much more given the experience we had.

    This was a wonderful experience. The boat was clean and comfortable and our host had really thought of every detail. We enjoyed a lovely snack platter and were not left without a drink throughout the 2 hours (we had an inclusive ticket). We enjoyed the commentary from the captain and our host, which was just the right amount of interesting information. If you are looking for something that gives a slightly upmarket feel for an excellent price, then I highly recommend this trip.

    This canal tour far exceeded my expectations. The boat captain and the tour guide did a great job narrating the tour and telling interesting stories. The snacks were great - there was a tray of mixed Dutch snacks (cheese, grapes, waffles, olives, etc.) for each couple or solo person. And the wine was outstanding. I expected the red wine (primitivo) to be subpar but it was surprisingly excellent and only 6 euro a glass. And they filled the glass us so a great value. I also met a number of great folks on the tour so all around 5 stars!! Highly recommend this tour

    Had a lovely afternoon on the boat tour!
    The boat itself is authentic and comfortable, our guide has been very friendly and shared fun insights into the city of Amsterdam.
    Definitely recommended, especially as a more laid back, authentic experience than most of the big boat tours.

    Trip was cancelled due to inclement weather. The management was very good about informing us and a refund was made within 1 day. Very good customer service; we will join a cruise with this company next time.
