Such a great experience! Just the right length (an hour), delicious cheese and wine (soft drinks also available). Theo and Lot were fantastic hosts, very friendly and engaging. Lot gave a great tour with some very interesting facts and was very knowledgeable. Our entire party found it fascinating ages ranging from 15 to 55. Excellent price. Boat was a beautiful old wooden one built in 1913 and only takes around 20 tourists which make it much more intimate than the huge floating ‘refectory style’ glass top boats. Highly recommend!!

This was so much fun! I have been on another canal cruise on a previous trip to Amsterdam and this one was by far way better. The cheese and drinks were delicious and a nice way to pass the time while seeing the beautiful city from the canal. The tour guides were also very nice and told us some interesting facts and had good senses of humour. Highly recommend! Also if you are facing the Anne Frank House entrance looking for the meeting point, go to the canal on the right side of the building, not the left!

Interesting tour with charming guides. Good way to get some background knowledge about Amsterdam's canals and buildings.

We travelled with Meg and Kelam. Think that’s spelt correctly. Wine was flowing and cheese perfect

What an excellent service! Appreciate the effort Gijs and Joan!
