Ok, I'm pretty proud of that title, just saying. So, about the tour. Just book one. I would recommend booking the night one, because you get some really good views of the buildings lit up. Also, you don't have to wake up early to catch an early one. That's a big bonus right there. I will say, this tour is as fun as the group makes it. If you're with a group that asks questions and likes to joke around, this is a great tour to take. If you want a serious and boring tour, just book one of those glass top boats. You can bring food, drinks, etc. with you on the boat, and they have blankets if you're cold. The meeting place is right across the street from the Anne Frank House, so it's easy to find. Again, if you're a fun person with a hint of personality, go ahead and book a tour. If you're just boring and miserable, still book the tour. I mean these guys have bills too.

We will definitely be recommending Those Dam Boat Guys to friends and family. Captain Leroy took us on a superb tour of Amsterdam, jam-packed with lots of interesting and fun facts about the city. He was also absolutely great with our ten-year-old kid who has not stopped talking about the boat tour since. Having done a lot of walking around the city prior to the boat tour we can honestly say being on the water gives an unmissable perspective and we enjoyed every minute of it!

Three years ago we sailed with these dam guys, and we were excited to do it once again, this time with our adult daughter accompanying us, and we were not disappointed. David was our Captain on this cruise. Small boat thus you can navigate the smaller canals, only 10 guests, open air, gorgeous weather, fun, casual yet informative curation - a very nice time! We brought along some stroopwafel to share and some champagne to keep to ourselves! We also had some product from the "coffee shop", but the vibe on board didn't really seem conducive, so we saved it for later. We learned lots from Captain David, so nice to have a personal narration, no loudspeaker from a recording.

We booked a tour with Dam Boat Guys based on Trip Advisor reviews and we didn’t regret it. Oliver was very professional and he was very informative. They have small boats for 10 persons maximum. It’s a great way to visit the city. We highly recommend this company.

I've been on this tour twice, and both times have been fun and unique experiences. The "guides" are very cool, knowledgeable, and help create a fun vibe for everyone on board. Eating, drinking, and smoking are encouraged, while you get to take a tour of the city and learn lots of interesting information (both historical and modern) along the way.
