    Karim and Juliette G were very engaging and smiling as was the whole team even those who were not specifically on our boat, making us feel really welcome and not like yet another pack of tourists. Juliette’s explanations were fun and attention catching and interesting and most importantly - not too abundant! Cheese and alcoholic drinks were unlimited but most people only had a beer or a glass of wine so if was all very civilised. Amsterdam is BEAUTIFUL and really best seen from the water - absolutely recommend!

    Tomy (Tamy I don’t remember tbh), Neó and Sam were amazing during this tour. My family and I enjoyed thoroughly every aspect of the trip. From the calm and complete explanation given about the historical context of the surroundings to the food given to us with utmost care and respect.

    We booked the tour "same day" and were readily accommodated. It was a small-group experience that afforded us a valuable introduction to the city sights. We were able to reference many locations that the boat tour introduced us to during our following explorations of Amsterdam. The guides were willing to answer questions in addition to describing the history of the Netherlands. We found the tour to be a valuable introduction to this historic city.
