Customer feedback about Activities in Amsterdam

Rating 4.8 based on 142 reviews

A totally alternative view of Amsterdam
I have always been very sceptical about boat tours in different cities, because they always look so commercial & touristic. The boat ride offered by Chris is totally opposite – a super relaxed way to cruise around Amsterdam and see the local life in a totally different perspective.

Besides being able to see the buildings in a much better way than walking or on bike, you can also see a lot of things happening in that vibrant city – from people shooting wedding photos on the bridges, to locals and/or tourists cruising on the canals with their friends and family, to seeing the life going on in the boat houses.

I'd say it's one of the must do things in Amsterdam and I would recommend Chris to everyone.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
GREAT day on the canals!
Booked a 2hr cruise with Chris, my husband, myself and our two children (5 and 3) were on the cruise. It was an unseasonably HOT day and Chris came prepared with sunscreen! He was amazing with the children and provided as much historical commentary as we would have wanted. He had drinks on board for a very reasonable price and we brought our own food. He took pictures as often as we asked/wanted. Overall, 6stars! I would take cursing with Chris anyday over being packed in a larger tour boat.... Especially when cruising with children, unobstructed views and some room to stretch out (along with drinks and food)! Cruise with Chris, you won’t regret it!
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Wonderful canal tour
Chris treated us to a fantastic tour of Amsterdam. It was a sunny day, quite cool (ice was forming in some places!) but we stayed warm with the help of blankets and laughter. If you want a private boat on the canals, this is the way to go. It's a different perspective from the water, and much more personal than a big tour boat. Plus you can ask Chris about the things that you are most interested in seeing and doing, favorite restaurants, bars and activities. We brought some of our own drinks, and were happy to have his cooler full of beer and wine when we ran out. Cheers to Captain Chris!
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Highlight of the trip!
Boat trip was beautiful - a definite highlight for our whole group of 6 - and Chris was not only helpful and knowledgeable but also just a fun person to spend an hour or so floating down the canals with! He made the whole process very easy and was able to enrich the trip with facts about the city and locals-only insider info. He gave us a great recommendation for a bar and restaurant and was even able to drop us off near where we were staying. I'd absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting the city. Great value for cost.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Great day, great guide
We had a beautiful time with Chris. We were looking for something mellow and not so touristy and it fit the bill perfectly. We got to see some canals where the big boats wouldn't fit. Chris told about the city, offered to take a photo of us and gave us some recommendations for the city (only when we asked, nothing unsolicited). He was easy to communicate with and arrange the pick up and drop off points. Thanks Chris!
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Lovely tour of Amsterdam
This was such a lovely tour! It was so nice to do a tour of the canals with just my family. Vanessa told us interesting stories as went thru the canals. With her small boat she was able to take us down some of the quieter canals that the larger tour boats can't travel down. Wet had our teenagers and Grandma with us and everyone enjoyed this tour.
Historic Boat Tour of Amsterdam Canals
Highlight of Amsterdam visit
Amsterdam Canals tour is an amazing experience and even better when you have a boat for just you and your friends/family. The view is amazing and the sunset was just glamorous. Besides, Chris was a really friendly guide and drove us to some hidden gems as well as famous places. It was for sure the highlight of our Amsterdam visit.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Don’t hesitate! This is the boat you want :)
Carl was an amazing host. He made me and my friends feel at ease and made the entire experience perfect. He offers great local insight to Amsterdam and some interesting history along the way, but clearly reads the group and delivers whatever will make the trip most enjoyable for everyone. Cant recommend it enough.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour with Drinks Included!
Great experience!
Chris was a fabulous guide and is extremely knowledgeable about the city. Seeing the city from the water gave us a beautiful perspective of our surroundings. Our family loved the private canal tour and we were so thankful to not be on one of those crowded tour boats. Highly recommend Chris!!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Worth it - forget the other boat tours
Forget the other "main" boat tours in Amsterdam. Chris and his tour is a great alternative to see the city in your own time and company, while feeling like a local. Would definitely recommend to anyone trying to avoid the more touristy activities in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour
Great 2h tour on the canals with Chris
My friend and I booked a private tour on the canals with Chris and got to see parts of Amsterdam from the water, that we have never seen before. Would highliy recommend the boat trip and Chris is a great captain and guide.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Wonderful! Thank you, Chris!
Super fun and super interesting!
If you’re considering a boat tour, do it with Chris! He showed us the true beautiful Amsterdam! Thank you Chris and thank you “Like a Local”!
:) :)
Till the next time... Proost 🍻 !!!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Awesome time!
Chris is an absolutely great guy and we really enjoyed our tour. A couple of our party were running over 30 minutes late due to issues with the tram, and he waited and still gave us over a full hour of our canal tour.

Fabulous way to see Amsterdam.
Loved the boat trip. Chris was a great host and his knowledge of the city is extensive. He kindly brought lots of ice, beer and water. Very convenient pick up and drop off. Would definitely use him again.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Chris was very helpful and friendly
We took a 1 hour tour with Chris on the 20th of February. We had a great time on the boat. There were many blankets on board although we didn't need any as the weather was sunny. I highly recomment it!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Private Canal Tour
Going on Chris’s boat was a complete joy, he takes you all over the city, many places where the big tourist boats can’t go. It felt like we were hanging out with a friend rather than a tour guide.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
For boyfriends 30th
Chris was really friendly and so easy to get on with, he was fun and we had a great time on the boat trip! Would 100% recommend a tour with him. Thanks again Chris :)
