My 2-hour boat tour is exactly the same as my 1-hour boat tour, just longer and more comprehensive. You can read plenty of positive reviews on the 1-hour tour page:

After I pick you up from your requested departure point, we’ll set off on a pleasant journey through the centre of Amsterdam.

You’ll get a complete introduction to the city, from its famous sights (the Red Light District, Anne Frank House, the I Amsterdam sign, the Heineken Brewery, the Rijksmuseum, and the Royal Theatre Carré, among others) to its hidden gems.

We’ll cruise down the canals on my personal, well-maintained 20 ft. boat, including those that are too narrow for the big tourist vessels to access.

The atmosphere is very laid-back, so just relax and enjoy an ice-cold drink as we sail through both the historical and contemporary districts. Along the way, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take photos.

Feel free to bring your own food and drinks. There’s a big cooler on board to keep your drinks ice cold, as well as several Fatboy beanbags. Cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are also available for an extra fee.

My boat is an open sloop and is in very good shape. The maximum capacity is 10 passengers.

2 hr Boat Trip
for Chris’s tour (Amsterdam Private 2-Hour Boat Tour)
Chris (free spirit) was very knowledgeable having lived in the city for 18 years. We went everywhere and the two hours flew by. It's not a running commentary trip where you shoot from fact to fact, it's more of a question and answer laid back approach with Chris offering up information as and when required about anything you see. We talked about lots of topics and life in Amsterdam from a local point of view.

The beers and the the scenery were great, with no risk of being hit by a bike.

Very worth while, thank you Chris.

Weather cancelled our trip

The inclement weather ended altering our trip. We didn't get to take the canal boat tour. Chris assured us we will receive full refund. Due to his busy Sunday schedule we were unable to change our tour.
Great fun
