The tour was magical and fun as well! Everything you hope for if you want an authentic canal tour. Jamie, our captain, was friendly and told many funny and interesting stories about the city! Also the boat was very quiet and comfortable!

Four of us went on a 90 minute tour of Amsterdam; we had a great time. Jamie, our captain and guide, was knowledgable and friendly. The boat was comfortable, and blankets were provided. We would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

I am so glad I found Jamie through TripAdvisor instead of one of those big boat/ glass covered boat tours. As other reviewers have said - this boat is small and fits about maximum of 12 so it's a nice intimate experience through the quaint...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
