What our clients say

We had a wonderful private boat tour with Carl. We chose for the 2hrs private canal tour where you pass along the most scenic landmarks in Amsterdam. The private boat is heated and very comfortable. Next time we definitely want to try out the private dinner cruise with them! The classic canal tour is also available for just one hour in case you would like a short tour.

Hans Gutenberg

Excellente excursion en bateau avec un bateau-salon historique. La croisière sur les canaux a été réalisée pour nous en français. Nous avons donc pu comprendre toutes les informations sur l'histoire de la ville. Le petit bateau privé est idéal pour les familles et les petits groupes. Il a été récemment rénové et a un grand intérieur. Nous avons vraiment apprécié la croisière sur le canal. Un perfect balade bateau en Amsterdam!

Kris Guetta
