In this 75 minute tour we learned a lot about Amsterdam´s history and enjoyed many sights that can only be seen from a boat. Our guide and captain Faried was excellent. He gave us a history lesson without being boring. Highly recommended.

Open boat tour is a great alternative to usual big crowded touristic boats. And captain Chiel makes your voyage absolutely unforgettable with his stories full of humour and love for Amsterdam.

The company website has information like that and numbers you can call for more information. I would recommend going directly to the company to get accurate info. As a customer, I am not the best person to answer that.
