      Not a guided tour
      I don’t recommend taking the private tour with Amsterdam Boat Experience. We were expecting a guided tour through the canals but we didn’t receive any explanation. And the boat was not as describe or seen in the pictures. We were kindle welcome to the boat and showed where the wine, beers, and soft drinks where and that was the only explanation we receive.

      I feel scammed - Amsterdam Light Festival
      I feel scammed 😅 We booked the trip for the Light Festivals with unlimited drinks in the covered boat that was supposed to be approx. 75 minutes and that's what we prepared ourselves for. Well...the boat was covered but because of 30 people on board all plastic covers were steamy all the time (very low visibility); we got ONE drink - tiny glass of wine, we couldn't pour ourselves, we asked for more but the lady was busy on the other side of the boat; we departed at 8:15 and got back at...9:00 - so 45 minutes, not even an hour!! We are disappointed and feel scammed, not going to rent anything from this company anymore :( +1 star because the lady guide was nice and interesting

      Nice cruise
      overall the tour was good. we had a small speaker that we wanted to listen to music at low volume. but that was not allowed. Besides that, the tour guide was good and the tour was nice. also, the boat was open as seen in photograph. it was really cold. so check weather before you book it

      Food, drinks and sightseeing
      Awesome chilled out couple of hours seeing the sights of Amsterdam. Our skipper was a fantastic host, as was the chef - pointing out some of the historical sites and giving us some local stories! The food and drinks selection were excellent - I'd probably bring along some spirits (gin / vodka) if I was to do it again. Highly recommend

      Best way to see Amsterdam!!
      Wonderful trip, amazing skipper. Sadly it rains but actually made us laugh more. Drinks a plenty, the snacks were very very little for the amount of people on the boat. Otherwise, absolutely the best trip one could do in Amsterdam!!!

      Great time
      Lovely trip, bbq was delicious, captain and chef were really friendly. Small hiccup with forgetting the liquor we had paid extra for but they remedied this after a quick reminder, can’t fault them.

      the classic amsterdam experience
      Had a great time, did the 2hours canal tour which was perfect, very relaxing. Easy to find, good website instructions.Staff was friendly and had planned for umbrellas which was appreciated as it was very hot. Drinks were ok just classic heineken soft drinks & sauvignon. Would have liked to be able to choose other options.

      Great experience!
      The food was fantastic and the tour was amazing! Our group had a fantastic time. Some minor areas for improvement on hot days: more ice in the cooler to keep the sodas and beer cold (yes, I'm from the USA) and keep the wine in the shade so it won't be hot. Also, on Get Your Guide, the tour is labeled handicapped accessible; it was not.

      Good Boat - No explanation whatsoever during the whole journey
      Positives; The boat left of time and it was a nice boat. Negatives: 1. Our skipper Carlos, didn't speak at all during the whole trip and didn't provide any information of the sights, or Amsterdam in general, he just literally didn't speak at all. ( he was smiley and positive attitude). 2. VERY VERY HOT and no rooftop on the boat, no option of having a bit of shadow during the whole trip.

      Great tour with a point of criticism
      It was a great trip, great snacks and delicious drinks. The boat was very cosy. The only criticism: we booked an extra guide in German, but only the very nice skipper was on board. It's a pity, even for the extra money paid for it.

      Bachelorette canal cruise
      We did a canal cruise for my sister in law’s bachelorette. 10 girls in the canals it was quite fun event. We picked unlimited drinks and snacks canal cruise. Drinks are good and really unlimited. Snacks were not very fresh. Boat came 12 minutes late and when we want captain to finish 12 minutes late. He was pissed off. He stopped and let us waited inside of the canal 12 more minutes. That part of the experience was not very kind. But overall canal cruise was good.

    Amazing way to check out Amsterdam ! I went with only my little dog. Host Ana and Skipper Erik were so great, making sure everyone aboard was comfortable and happy! They shared some interesting facts about the city as we cruised through various parts of Amsterdam. Highly recommend!

    Led by skipper JP and our host Olivia, we had a lovely hour's long tour along the canals of Amsterdam. The tour was informative without being overbearing, giving us insight into the history behind significant buildings as well as the surprising cost of purchasing a houseboat! Instructions were clear on where to start the tour and the tour started promptly. A must do in Amsterdam!

    The crew we had were Jeffry and Isabella, what a special treat! Not only where they nice and very hospitable they were a joy to be around! Funny and informative, my family and I had a wonderful time. We decided on a whim to take the cruise before our Anne Frank House tour. It worked out that the timing was perfect and the boat made it back 20 mins before our tour. We definitely plan to cruise with them again when ever we bring friends or family to Amsterdam

    We had a great time around Amsterdam canals during this 2h45 minutes. The captain was really friendly and sail us in area we had never seen before (we lives in AMS for 5 years). We were lucky to catch a glimpse of the elephants and giraffes at Artis Zoo. Boat was clean and very comfortable. Great day with great souvenirs. We will use the company again.
    one small point, we called the company a few days before the boat trip requesting an entire open sloop, the person over the phone confirmed us that it will be the case. However, arriving at the dock, the sloop had an iron frame with windows at the front.

    Cedric and Livia we’re absolutely incredible! They made our trip so much fun. You definitely have to keep this pair of hosts together. They were absolutely amazing, they were so knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, and provided tons of information and fun facts about Amsterdam. We really really felt that they made the cruise what it was. I couldn’t imagine having gone with different hosts. They were absolutely phenomenal and we really appreciated the joy, inviting spirit, and kindness that they brought to the job. We would absolutely recommend this company to anyone we knew he was going to Amsterdam I’m looking for a cruise! We hope you get that champagne Cedric and Livia! thanks for an amazing memory!

    Excellent tour, great boat and very attentive staff. I was traveling with my elderly mother who they also kindly helped get on and off the boat. Ines was our skipper who was a local (we even got to wave at her family as we sailed past her home!) and Lia our host who was from overseas and shared her highlights of living in this city - thank you both for a wonderful cruise!

    Last weekend I was in Amsterdam with some of my girlfriends who are studying abroad in Europe for the semester. We all 100% recommend this activity if you are looking for a relaxing, informative, and fun time! our tour was at 10 am and I defiantly recommend doing the morning one because it is a great start to you day. Great price too. I learned a lot about Amsterdam that I would not have known if I didn't go on this tour.

    Our skipper was Tijmen and our host was Stella! :)

    We timed this for a sunset cruise through the canals beginning at 9 pm. Wonderful and informative crew to tell us all about the sights. Beautiful display of cheese and all the beer or wine you wanted. Very convenient location right at Anne Frank House. Amsterdam is a beautiful city, especially at night!

    Fantastic tour! The organiser that was waiting by the starting point was very helpful and friendly. We didn't have tickets but she assured us that the boats come every 10 minutes and there are usually extra spaces. Our skipper Stein and host Dani were very fun and enjoyable to listen to. Dani also made some great cocktails.

    First time to Amsterdam and we loved this boat trip it was more intimate. Our host Izzy and skipper Mo were very knowledgeable and lively about the sights we saw. They were AMAZING…Very enjoyable. And the drinks were an added extra touch. 😊 PS. Duck under tunnels…lol
