As a daughter of a foreign mom who lost her heart to this wonderful city , I know what makes it so unique. I even won a prize for writing an ode to Amsterdam.

The canals are filled with history and we love showing you around, serve you good drinks & fine snacks. With Stephan my husband, as one of our captains and our knowledgeable co-hosts, we'll make sure to bring you a fun cruise to remember. We love to sail you through the city, telling you facts and personal stories about our lives in Amsterdam. Rain or shine, it's always a great experience!
Our Cozy & Fun and Special Light Art Tour is now one of the highly recommended experiences on Airbnb. With more than 2.700 reviews. That doesn't only make us very proud, but gives us the drive to keep improving. And continue to bring the best experiences to our guests!

Where you'll be

As we start from the oldest canal in the city you will see some of the oldest buildings in the city. We will come onto the Amstel and you will see the famous and iconic Skinny Bridge. From there we sail to the oldest parts of Amsterdam through the tiny canals on which the big boats can not come. Passing well known spots as well as the beautiful hidden gems. Finally passing the Golden Bend, the most prestigious part of the Herengracht

We had a really nice Trip with Stephan! He’s a very welcoming and open hearted person. We were three couples and had a lovely trip through the canals of Amsterdam. Stephan really knows the story of his town and told us a lot of interesting details. All in all everyone had fun and the price is more than fair. Thank you again :-)

I really enjoyed the canal tour with Stephan and Pochani. As a local, I was able to experience another side of Amsterdam on a beautiful day, in a cozy setting, while learning some fun facts about the city. It was really special for me to share this with my family that was visiting from the UK, and Pochani made us feel right at home by showing us cool places, giving us some cool tips, and making the tour a bit more personable.

Très bonne expérience. Mes parents ne parlent pas anglais mais le rythme était assez calme pour que je puisse traduire au fur et à mesure ! Un prix très correct pour une petite balade avec des boissons et des snacks. L’hôte est drôle et sait alterner histoire et moment plus calme pour observer le paysage. À faire!

My family and I came to this experience expecting it to be the most beautiful boat trip. It was our last day and this was meant to be our special send off. Little did we know that we were about to go on a boat where we will be racial discriminated against and mislead. Firstly, the description said "up to 10 people max" and during a time of a global pandemic, you would think that professional tour providers would adhere to local/global guidance. Not here. There were 14 people on this tiny boat! (Guess what, the weekend after - Netherlands went into quarantine again!) Secondly, the description said "Food, Drinks and Equipment included" (I have a screenshot of this, in case they change it) - none of that was provided Lastly and most importantly, my family got on this boat and was racially discriminated against by the skipper. He chose to ignore us the whole trip, made us squeeze into one corner and basically only paid attention to the white people, we came last. I contacted the host about this and yet wasn't offered a formal apology nor compensation for them mis-selling us this trip and leaving us fee hurt and uncomfortable. If you're a coloured person, please avoid!!!
