Born and raised in Amsterdam, I know the best places to show you. From our houseboat in the centre, we’ll hop on our historic and comfortable boat for the real Amsterdam experience.

The tour starts on the Oudeschans canal with a view of the famous Sluyswachtershuis building, which is now a café. We’ll make our way to the Amstel River and sail underneath the Skinny Bridge. There’s a local legend that says if you kiss your loved one while passing underneath it, you’ll be together forever.

Next, we’ll head for Stadhouderskade, where we’ll pass the Heineken Brewery. Also the Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark we pass along the way. We’ll then sail to the Prinsengracht, Leidsegracht, the Jordaan district area (where you find the Anne Frank House, Westertoren and 9 streets area).

Curious where the major lives? I'll show you! After that : the Golden Bend on the Herengracht, where the most expensive canal houses can be found.

The tour ends with in the Red Light district area, the oldest en most vibrant part of the city!

Great tour! :D
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.
Wonderful experience!!!
From the boat ride to the scenery everything was amazing including these great guys. They were really helpful with our travel and history questions. We will definitely bring our friends next time we visit.

Delicious Food, Excellent Company
This houseboat dinner was fantastic! The food was incredibly delicious. I'm a vegetarian myself, so I loved seeing the vegetarian menu (the meat eaters in the group also loved the meal despite the traditional proteins). We had an extra large crowd the night of our dinner, but the hosts handled it splendidly. It was lovely getting to chat with the different groups from different backgrounds. Carl and Roberto were amazing hosts, and did I mention great chefs as well? There were very attentive servers and drink-refillers, and held great conversations with everyone. It was so fascinating to tour the houseboat and see their recent, beautiful renovations. The houseboat is centrally located to downtown and easy enough to find. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and partake again if I ever find myself back in the area. Thank you for a fantastic evening!
was absolutely delightful, special and delish.
loved the hosts and the company we met at the dinner party. could not have had a more interesting special night in amsterdam that was private and personal. felt like we lived there for a moment.
enjoyed all of it and the boat is just gorgeous and hip. GO!
Our dinner was a lovely and special experience on the houseboat of our hosts Robertino and Carl. Nice atmosphere, delicious food, cozy and intimate setting.
