What you'll do

Yes we are back, and ofcourse all Corona proof. No more than 10 (or 12 with families) guests on a boat where we can handle 25. And no snacks for now. But I have adjusted the price accordingly. Enjoy Amsterdam in a relaxed and Corona Free.

The Friends and Family boat tour. With a small group on a full electric boat, you will even see and hear more than on those glass busses.

We will go on the most relaxing, comfy and fun family and friends boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam. But not just any boat ride. You will be indulged drinks, stories, history and humor. But besides that, you will also be meeting guests from all over the world. And they all speak English. Get to know France, India, Spain, Andorra, Italy , US and so much more while your at it. It will be the experience of a lifetime. And as I am your host for the whole tour, I will entertain you with amazing facts, funny and exciting stories. But most off all, I will bring it in the most relaxing and cosy setting possible so you really can enjoy.

I am a 100% sure you and your family and friends will have a great time. You will love it!

Note:
- No more tickets or in need of a private tour, contact me first I can always arrange something.
- This is a relaxing canal tour, not a booze-cruise

Hi I'm Captain Jack. A huge part of my life I have been on the canals of Amsterdam. And after working with other companies, it was time to spread my own wings. With the support of one of the best group of people, I have started this amazing journey. I hope you will join me on one of my amazing tours.

I will show you the city as I have experienced it all my life. I love this city so much, it is an absolute pleasure showing you guys around.

(Following is due the corona virus not possible for now:)
I have made a personal selection of my favorite typical dutch snacks and local specialties. I have been enjoying these treats all my life. With the nicest food and drinks I will be telling you all you need to know about this beautiful city on an open electric boat.

Where you'll be

The Canals of Amsterdam are on the Unesco Heritage list. The only place where they put a entire city center on this list. Why? Because it is an amazing city with even more rich history.
It is no suprise that New York used to be New Amsterdam.
You will see beautifull 17 century houses, the romantic Skinny bridge, the jewish area, the old Church (1308), Rijksmuseum, Anna Frank House, Golden bend and so much more.

Look no further, this is the canal cruise you want! Capt Jack.. is Jack of all trades. He was funny, knowledgeable and maneuvered through those canals like a true expert. From the very beginning he was able to create a fun and relaxed environment. Throughout the 1.5hr trip he gave great information about Amsterdam and its history. The unlimited drinks were a bonus. Definitely will be booking again with the one and only if we return.

Capt Jack is an amazing guide and the tour was great. The weather was fantastic and wondering around Amsterdam canals while zipping a nice white wine was a great experience :-)
