Distillery tour and rum tasting: informative and fun!
My boyfriend and I went on a tour and tasting for our anniversary and it was a lot of fun. The distillery looks great and the tour was very informative. It was no problem at all for the guide to host it in English, since there were non-Dutch-speaking people there. Great quality rum as well. Definitely recommend it!

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
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
AMAZING EXPERIENCE
I wanted to propose to my boyfriend while in Amsterdam and was fortunate enough to find Chris. He was very kind and communicative and helped me come up with a clear plan. It could not have gone any better and now we’re engaged!
Chris was the perfect amount of informative, funny, and charming. I highly recommend his boat ride.
Also, Amsterdam at dusk into the night is nothing short of magical.

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
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
Great private boat tour in Amsterdam
Chris was a great tour guide. He took us to places that the larger canal boats just can't access (because of their size). This gave us a closer look at how the locals live and play in Amsterdam. Excellent overall experience, highly recommended!

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
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.

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!

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.
