This was a last minute booking for us and I'm so glad we decided to do this. It was just over 90minutes on a small boat learning about the history, culture and random facts about Amsterdam. I would recommend this boat trip over any of...More

We took a canal tour at 2 in the afternoon in the day we arrived. Luckily (or unluckily) it was raining. This ended up being great for us - we were the ONLY two people on the tour. The boat was small but covered and...More

We had a lovely time with the nicest young man. He was so knowledgeable about the area and was so much fun! He even dropped us off at our hotel from the canal. We would definitely recommend these Dam Boat Guys.

Excellent tour. Knowledgeable and a different take on all subjects. Quite a bit of political opinions too

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
