Amsterdam All-Inclusive 2-Hour Canal Cruise
A master class taught by an expert.
Karla was remarkable. She spent three hours with us. First setting the stage in the museum cellar, then ascending into the rest of the building. She got us through crowds and positioned us to enable getting a senses not just of the art but if the historical context. Karla is outstanding.

Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Best Trip ever
Chris was great. Showed us hidden neighbourhoods which we would Never have seen by ourselves. Was entertaining and a quite cool local.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Boat trip cancelled due to rainy weather.
Unfortunately, we were not able to go on the boat as the weather did not work well in our favor. However, Chris, the skipper, has apologized profusely even though there was nothing he could have done to change the weather conditions.

Chris has further assured me that I will be refunded in full.

I would like to thank Chris for the professional way he handled the situation and I will be sure to book him whenever I visit Amsterdam again.

Friendly and knowledgeable canal tour guide
We really enjoyed our tour with Chris who is very friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. It does feel much nicer having avoided the big 'commercial' canal tours in Amsterdam and opted for the more intimate and 'alternative' tour with Chris - although he is rightly charging for his services, of course.
We did really get the impression that we saw different parts of the canal system and the entire trip felt very relaxed.
The only thing is that getting on and off the boat can be a little challenging - no problem for young people or kids, but keep that in mind if mobility is not perfect.

Missed the tour
Due to some confusion on my part over the exact meeting location, I missed the tour by about five minutes. And unfortunately, my phone did not have service in Amsterdam, so I missed the guide trying to contact me.

Thankfully, the staff at the Rijksmuseum allowed me to join the next tour, so I didn't feel so bad.

But please, be a little clearer about the meeting locations......

Missed the tour
I was at what I believed to be the right location for the start of the tour, at the correct time.

But there was no one there, and unfortunately my phone did not have service so I was not able to call or text to find out where I was supposed be (or if the tour had been cancelled).

I'm sure the tour was great, but please give better information about the meet up location.

(The attached photo is the meeting location, according to my reservation confirmation)
Historic Boat Tour of Amsterdam Canals
Dutch hospitality at its best!
Can not say enough about how friendly and knowledgeable Rolf was during our time together. We now have much deeper insight into Dutch history, government, and lifestyle. The visit to the cheese factory was incredible, not a tourist in sight other than us. No lines, no crowds, and prices the locals pay.

We were never hurried and his goal was to provide a customized day based on our interests, not his.

Rolf deserves 10 stars and we will remember our time with him forever.
Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam to the Dutch Countryside by Car
Fun, informative, relaxed, accommodating!
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Wonderful tour
Chris was a great guide. Very knowledgeable about Amsterdam and its history. I would recommend the two hour tour to get to see everything from small hidden canals to open water where ferries and large boats go.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Fantastic way to see the city
I went out with four friends, our original booking had to be rearranged because of bad weather but Chris was very accommodating and we ended up going out the next day in beautiful sunshine. Chris was very knowledgeable and funny and clearly loves the city, it was more like going out on a friend's boat- so much better than the big tourist liners. We learned a lot and got to see parts of the city that we wouldn't have been able to otherwise, thanks Chris!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
An insider's tour through the Amsterdam canals
Vera gave us a fantastic tour across the canals of the Amsterdam city centre. She had great stories, anecdotes and information about the city that you can only really get from a local.

The boat was a brilliant, 100 year old vessel that was very comfortable and came equipped with drinks and refreshments. My guests loved it and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to try something different from the regular canal tours outside Centraal Station.

Broken boat. No Tour
The boat was broken, hence the tour did not go ahead, unfortunately. My experience is: next time book a tour operator that has backup boat...
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Great walking tour with Karla
A two hours walking tour Amsterdam was exactly what we were looking for. Our guide Karla gave us historical information as well as insider views on the city. Highly recommendable!
Walking Tour Through Historical Amsterdam
Caspar was our guide for the Rijksmuseum a few days ago. He inquired as to what we wanted to see, and we were open for the experience as he liked. I was so impressed with the history and interpretations he provided us at many painting and several objects. Most importantly, there was time to reflect on the the possibilities present when the artist/master created the work. Caspar is also a working artist, and it is obvious that he enjoys what he’s doing. It was a fascinating tour. Excellent experience. Thank you, Caspar!
