Check availability of the tour:


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.

This tour is exactly the same as my 2-hour boat tour, just shorter and a little less comprehensive. You can read additional positive reviews on the 2-hour tour page:

Enjoyed a Heineken while riding around the canals is a great experience. Chris took us to less crowded parts of the canals and parts of the city you would never see unless you were on the canal

We had a GREAT time. Boat was very nice and Chris was a charming local. He showed us places we would never have seen on any other type of tour. Seeing Amsterdam via the water is a great way to see and fall in love with the city.
Chris was great.
