We really enjoyed our trip with Cap'n Joe. As it's a small boat it is very personal and they let you choose what to see. Maybe research what you want to see before you get on the boat which is something we didn't do. We...More

My family and I recently enjoyed our boat tour of Amsterdam. Our guide, Leroy, pointed out many highlights of this beautiful, picturesque city while providing us with an overview of its history. It was great to be in a small boat with only 10 people,...More

The 7 of us enjoyed a great trip with Gideon, he made sure we all had an amazing time. Best part of our holiday was this boat trip and Gideon's quality beard.

Loved our tour with captain Oliver. Definitely a good choice to take a smaller canal tour. Tour was laid back and felt more like a boat ride with friends than a stuffy tour. Buy some snacks and wine (or their beer from the gift shop!)...More

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

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.
