What you'll do
I will welcome you at my houseboat in the center of Amsterdam. We will start with a short introduction on basic kayak techniques, and then plan a route that will show you the highlights you want to see, e.g. Anne Frank House, Skinny Bridge and others. You will be supplied with life vests and a snack/water, and then we enter the kayaks. First we will practise controlling the kayak, and then start our tour. We will kayak past monumental buildings, see the quaint houseboats and enjoy the city at its most beautiful. I will give you information on the history of Amsterdam, and will try to answer any questions you might have. We return to the houseboat after about 100 minutes. As I only guide a maximum of five participants per tour, it is a highly personal and friendly experience. Please note: If only one person wants to do the tour, the price is €100. Also: as the season is over, I can only organise tours by appointment. Please contact via +316 444 88911.
My name is Ed, born and raised in Amsterdam, and I work as professional classical musician. I love kayaking, and have kayaked not only in Amsterdam, but also in Belgium, Scotland and Western Canada. To see Amsterdam from a kayak is a magical experience that I love to share with others. I have kayaked with a wide range of people, from teenagers to seniors. The enthusiastic reactions I received inspired me to start tours on a daily basis. I hope to get the chance to meet you and show you my city in a unique way.
I will supply you with a kayak (I have three one-seater kayaks and one double kayak), paddles and a life vest. Some…

Where you'll be
In a kayak you get see Amsterdam from a unique vantage point. You also will see canals that are too small for the regular canal boats. It is a peacefull and personal way that makes you connect to this historic city like no other tour will.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
I expect you to be fit and able to go kayaking. I also expect you to be able to swim. You don't need any previous experience with kayaking as it is not difficult to do. You can leave items at the houseboat for safekeeping.
