About Leemstar
When you prefer small group tours with live guiding. Then Leemstar is a good choice. Leemstar is born out of Amsterdam passion. We offer Private & Shared cruises and operate in small groups which may vary from 2- max 20 guests. The local & professional captains take you out on 100 % electric & silent Stylish Open or Covered a typical DUTCH boats. So no crowded/massive tour boat but distinguishing vessels, some with historical value. Engage in dialogue with the local skipper & learn lots of things about Amsterdam! The shared 90 minutes Leemstar Saloon Launch Boat cruise varies in classic and more modern parts of the city. Shorter shared cruises tend to stay in the canal belt and are able to visit smaller canals. Don't forget about our private options, prices don't differ that much! Our boats can fit any occasion.. Visit our website for more information. If there's no availability please contact us directly. Cruise with Leemstar! Others experienced it as the highlight of their trip!

We had the opportunity to have a private tour. The captain Floris was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam. Best price, 40€ for 90mins. Highly recommended!

There are so many boat / cruise tours in Amsterdam to choose from, but this one was an easy choice for us because of 3 reasons: 1) the boat looked beautiful and less touristic 2) the boat was limited to 8 seats, and we did not want to be together with a big group especially during Corona time. 3) The departure very convenient for us as it was close to the 9th streets where we usually were hanging out. We arrive to the departure location 15 min early, and we saw the boat approaching with some other tourists. They were laughing and having a good time. Our host said good bye to the other group and greeted us with a smile. He told us we are the only guests on his boat at 17h so we will have the private tour for the price a normal ticket. We started our 90 min tour on this beautirful boat. The host was knowledgeable and we got to ask him all our questions about life in Amsterdam. We spent a great moment, it was definitely the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. Definitely choose this boat instead of the big tourist boats, its worth it!

Thank you for the nice review. We try to tailor our cruises to the guests on board. With doing this we hope for a perfect fit and maximum enjoyment :) The Leemstar is a one of a kind ship with space for 12 or more but during Covid we operate with a maximum of 8. Thank you noticing and your appreciation. Thanks again!

We had an amazing outing with Floris. The tour started with an amazing history of Amsterdam going back to the 12th century and included many funny anecdotes and cultural vignettes as well as killer recommendations for bars and restaurants. You will laugh and learn continuously! Don’t miss it!

I reserved an hour-long boat cruise for a dear friend's birthday. The whole experience was such a treat. The boat was absolutely gorgeous and our guide was charming, friendly, and knowledgeable. I will most certainly be booking boat tours with this company in the future. (A note on covid measures - we maintained distance the entire time and I felt very comfortable.)

We had an amazing Tour with Leemstars! Me and my boyfriend came to Amsterdam in September and were lucky to enoy a private tour. The guide was super friendly and well informed about history and current developments in the city. While enjoying the city, we were served a good white wine. I can definitely recommend the tour and would it again!
