    Stop: 90 minutes
    Come and join our award-winning 'Best Boat Tour 2020 for Amsterdam' and sail along the most beautiful parts of Amsterdam. We sail in a spacious boat with a roof that we open when the weather is nice. Where others like to sail a fixed route and give standard comments, we like to sail on different routes and tell stories about the things we see and admire, with a lot of humor. The cruise starts (and ends) on dock at the Prinsengracht 579.

Fun, informative time. Capt Dave was very personable. The peace and tranquility of having the canals to yourself is worth the early morning wake up

Quite boats tour in the morning - you have the canals for yourself when the city is still asleep
Jul 2020 • Friends
This was one of our highlights of our trip. We had the early morning tour and the canals were completely empty, quite and beautiful. Dave our tour guide was one of the kindest people we know. As a local he knew every corner and had a story for everything and we learned so much about Amsterdam. The way he explained it, we will remember those facts forever. It was really fun and we joked around a lot. It felt like a super private tour because he took care of us and answered all our questions. We had super delicious coffee, orange juice and fresh warm delicious baked croissant. He also provided his personal recommendations after the trip. We would recommend this trip to any visitor.

Dave is a dedicated small group canal tour and boat Captain, doing a great job of entertaining his guests. You always feel well taken care of, with Capt. Dave. His coffee machine is always on and the heated cushions are a fine touch, on a Winter morning cruise.
Go with Capt. Dave and have a load of fun -even if it’s raining and dark !

Feb 2020 • Friends
I loved Captain Dave’s cruise, between the laughs and the views, he was able to show us Amsterdam in its way, with heated seats (my ass is still warm!!), the beverages, the tipical Dutch cookies... everything was a full full experience. The portuguese group loved you Dave! You’re welcome in Porto anytime.
Best wishes,
Ana

Highly recommend this lovely cruise
Jan 2020
This cruise with Captain Dave had been recommended to us by friends and we are so glad we took their advice. We were warmly welcomed on a cold morning with fresh pastries, hot drinks and fresh orange juice with Prosecco. We were also given heated cushion pads and rugs too keep us comfortable! We had a leisurely cruise through the canals of Amsterdam and Captain Dave’s enthusiasm and knowledge shone through. He obviously enjoys his job and meeting people, It is a small boat and a small group which makes it much more enjoyable. This trip is a must!

Captain Dave Is the Best!
Nov 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time on the early morning cruise with Captain Dave. He’s funny, knowledgeable, engaging, and very considerate! He even offered to ferry a fellow passenger to the Anne Frank House for free, as she was running late for her appointed time. The trip was fantastic. It included coffee, tea, fresh baked goods and Captain Dave made everyone feel at ease and amongst friends. Great sights and great insight from a local. Do yourself a favor and book this over a bigger, more crowded cruise. It’s worth getting up early! Thanks for a wonderful time, Captain Dave!
