We had a great tour with Dom. She told us so many interesting facts about the city we never would have learnt on a main stream tour. We could take our own food and drink, our group were awesome. Dom was really engaging and encouraged us to ask questions so we learnt all sorts of cool facts. 100% recommend! You won't regret it.

We arrived late, with 2 pizzas from a nearby takeout (‘VIA’ for anyone who is interested) and 2 bottles of wine. We were greeted warmly and the other 2 from our party who sadly decided not to come (due to the weather and the fact they’d be dragged on a walking tour for over 3 hours prior) were politely offered a refund. Pino was our captain and he manoeuvred the dingy around the sometimes narrow to wide canals expertly. He was lovely, knowledgeable and a delight to accompany our group on a not-so-warm Easter Day. Would recommend for anyone who doesn’t want earphones shoved in their ears with a boring recording of Dutch culture. Also for anyone who wants chilled BYOB ‘bring your own anything’

The perfect way to see the city. I would recomment taking the tour at the beginning of your trip as it will give you a good backdrop to the city and provides lots of ideas to fill the remainder of your trip. Our captain Pino was fun, helpful and filled with knowledge! Definitely worth it!

We took the tour on Saturday evening (March 31st) and had the absolute best time. Our guide was so funny and really entertaining! The boat holds 10 people + the guide and our boat was full. It was very comfortable. Eight of us sat around a table and two people sat in seats near the guide. The boat is enclosed so even though it was cold and rainy out we stayed warm and cozy. I would categorize this more as an evening out cruising the canals and learning fun facts about Amsterdam. It's not a hard core history lesson. We were able to bring wine and food and most people did. The boat had plastic cups and a wine opener on board. We all enjoyed our wine/cheese/crackers etc... while we sailed the canals listening to our guide's entertaining stories. We would highly recommend this tour!
