For over twenty years I’ve been involved professionally in the historical and future use of Amsterdam and its canals.
During this time I have worked extensively with Amsterdam city hall on various project involving the historical canals of Amsterdam.
I have carried out several feasibility studies on the use of the canals. And preformed several comprehensive surveys of the city and its canals.
As a result I’m probably one of the city’s leading experts of Amsterdam and its canals.

My co-host and captain Dennis Langeberg grew up in area of Amsterdam that we tour. And we even pass the school he attended.
Dennis is a true Amsterdamer threw and threw. And also has a life time of local knowledge.

Book Matthews tour. Cheaper and more intimate/personal than many of the tours offered in AMS. Open bar and snacks on board. Cheers from the USA!

We were offered some cheap wine, VERY watered down liquor, dry crackers, and stale cookies. It was also one of those boats where anyone can just hop on so it ended up being us and about 15 tourists. Driver laughed at us when we asked for champagne.

This was a lovely cruise around as the sun set. We had all the wine we wanted - Matthew just gave us the bottle! Very cozy spot on the boat. There were others on the boat not doing the Air B&B experience and yes, they paid less but had the sides of the boat and no booze. We had a great time and I would take future visitors in this cruise.

The tour was very enjoyable, but I paid $33 on AirBnb. It was only €20 for open bar if you show up and pay.

The boat trip was a wonderful experience with the snacks and bar making a super hot day much more enjoyable, Matthew's knowledge of the city and easy going manner made the trip better than similar canal trips

This canal boat tour was the highlight of our trip in Amsterdam. We loved exploring the city from the water and the 9pm tour was perfect timing for catching the summer sunset. My only gripe was that this was advertised as including unlimited drinks but the host took our drink requests in the beginning and maybe once more but most of the time we sat there with empty cups. A self serve option or more attention to service would have made this more worth the price tag.
