What you'll do

We are offering a two hour open boat tour through the canals with an open boat, including drinks and typical Dutch snacks. The tour will start and end at the pier in front of the Rijksmuseum. Upon arrival, the guests will be received by our helmsman/boat driver Michel and by the host (Edo or Luciana) for a welcome drink. Then we will set for a tour through the canals, passing the most interesting points of Amsterdam by water: Canal belt, Amstel, 7 bridges, Red Light, Dancing Houses and a lot more. The idea is for the passangers to experience Amsterdam in its most beatiful form, namely from the water, while relaxing, interacting with each other and the host and trying and learning about some typical Dutch food (Different kind of cheeses, snacks like stroopwafels, etc) The idea is for the tour not to be a historic tour where the guide will be speaking for the whole duration of the tour but more of an informal interaction between the passengers and the host in which the passengers can get to know the host's perspective of the city. However the host will definetly point out the most interesting things that we pass by and give some background.
