Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Leemstar Canal Cruises provides in 100% electric canal tours with personal atmosphere and local knowledge! All this on our luxurious classic saloon boat (heated) which is 100% electric. It's a Tesla on the water where you can walk around in! A floating living room which cruises you along the beautiful sights in Amsterdam! The boat is always driven by a the owner who lives along the canals! He gives you the best introduction to Amsterdam... During this cruise you will see more then just the city centre canals.. This cruise varies in classic and more modern parts of the city and shows a bit of the recent developments in Amsterdam. The cruises are on a privately owned 90 year old saloon boat which has a maximum capacity of 14 persons. So no crowded/massive tour boat and the owner/skipper (who's a local) can tell you lot's of things about Amsterdam! You're welcome to bring your own food & beverages or you can order on board. Saloon boat Leemstar is also available for "Private" and small group tours. So if you're with family, friends or any kind of group. It's possible to rent the boat for your own. In price it doesn't differ that much and it's a great experience. Avoid the crowd! Travel the canals in style and enjoy the hospitality of a local... Meet as strangers and depart as friends. Cruise with Leemstar!

My wife and two children took an evening tour. Loved the all wood boat and had such a great tour. We enjoyed this so much more than we would have on the larger boats that pack the people in so tight.

My husband and I took this canal tour and we're so glad we did. The boat was classic and made entirely of wood, which for my husband who appreciates fine wood work, loved. Our captain, Jack, was humorous and knowledgable of the history of Amsterdam. Having a tour with a small group with someone that has grown up in Amsterdam, and who loves the city and yet explain some of the practical rationale in a humorous manner for what and why things were along the tour was great treat. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Just eight of us on this tour of the canals, which made it feel very personal. Lots of opportunity to ask questions of the captain - born and bred in Amsterdam, perfect English speaker, very knwleadgeable and funny. Not afraid to offer an opinion, rather than just facts, which I liked. The boat is small, cosy and comfortable. A great way to see the city - so much better than getting one of the large 100 seater commercial operations. Highly recommended!

The boat is just beautiful and seeing the canals with a small group is so much better than the large boat tours with recordings. The guide is very nice and knowledgeable. You get a great overview of the city.

My daughter, son and I took this 7 p.m. canal cruise and it was worth every Euro. The captain/owner was responsive, accommodating and knowledgable beyond expectations. Skip the big boats and enjoy this intimate canal cruise with family or friends.
