First, thank you to TripAdvisor travelers for all the reviews, after sifting through we found the right tour! This was a difficult one as this is a particularly touristic kind of experience to book. Do I want to smoke and forget my cruise? No! Or...More

I've taken numerous private boat tours from Pap. They're always good, always different and my guests always learn and see something new about Amsterdam. It can be a bit pricey, but it's worth it.

Hi there, so awesome to hear that you sail so much with us. Sad to hear that you think it's pricey. We actually are one of the cheapest companies here in Amsterdam for private tours!

Had a perfect time on the boat with 6 others. The Guy who was steering the boat knew alot about the surroundings. Kept on talking alle the time, which never got boring. Would recommend this organisation if you would like toch do a Canal tour.

Captain Brian and his boat The Zevi were the highlight of our excellent long weekend in Amsterdam. The perfect weather helped as well!

Loved the tour and the guide. Being in the smaller boat made it possible to go places the bigger boats couldn't go. Captain Brian was a great guy and very knowledgeable about the history of the area.

We sailed the Zavi with Captain Brian. The boat was very comfortable and we were so glad we did the smaller boat vs the larger more impersonal tour.
