I rented a private boat with these guys, good communication, wide assortment of drinks and snacks on the boat. Perfect for special celebrations as a birthday. Everyone enjoyed the tour and the extra information given by the skipper. Definitely recommended!

Great tour! The crew (Eddy and a nice girl) was really nice and ready to answer to every questions we had. They are young and motivated and you can buy drinks on the boat (excluded from the initial price). Recommended!

Did this with a few friends and had a great time! The two guides on the boat were really friendly and funny. We got to learn a bit about the city and had a few drinks too. Would definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed having a guide who kept everyone's attention and interjected lots of fun and interesting anecdote. Plenty of blankets to keep everyone warm on a cold/rainy day.

Stumbled over this canal tour outside Anne Franks house. The guide gave us an entertaining and humerus trip around the Amsterdam canals. Q&A on Amsterdam and Dutch history. Highly recommended.

We joined for the Light Festival. Cosy boat, blankets and heating were available, which was necessary. Great guides who knew a lot to tell. Friendly atmosphere.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

The boats are pretty much the same sizes and (what I think) they would fit about 20 people max.
