Experience Amsterdam in the best way possible: from the water!

After I pick you up from your requested departure point, we'll set off on a wonderful journey through the city center.

You'll get a complete introduction to the city, from the famous sights - the Red Light District, Anne Frank House, the I Amsterdam sign, the Heineken Brewery, the Rijksmuseum, and the Royal Theatre Carré, among others - to the hidden gems.

We'll cruise down the canals on my personal, well-maintained 20 ft. boat. The atmosphere is very laid-back, so just relax and enjoy an ice-cold drink as we sail through both the historical and contemporary districts.

We'll navigate through the narrowest canals in the old city, which the big tourist vessels can't access. Along the way you'll have plenty of opportunities to take amazing photos.

Feel free to bring your own food and drinks. Cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available on board for an extra fee.

There are several Fatboy bean bags on board and a big cooler to keep your drinks ice cold.

This tour can be 100% personalized for you.
