Harry our captain did a great job making the boat ride feel like a trip down the history of Amsterdam while infusing it with his own personality and sense of humor, which kept us captivated. He encouraged us to ask questions too. I highly recommend this boat tour experience!

We booked this private tour of Amsterdam and it turned out to be a great decision. Our wonderful tour guide, Harry, met us at the hotel. We sat there for 10-15 mins. during which time we discussed other tours we were doing, what we wanted to see etc. Harry customized the tour to align with what we wanted to see and not duplicate other tours we were doing. Harry was so knowledgeable about Amsterdam and its history. We learned so much. At the end of our time together, Harry made sure we had our bearings right so that we could get back to our hotel as well as continue touring the city. THANK YOU HARRY!!!!! You were wonderful!
“Wir hatten einen wunderschönen, informativen Nachmittag in Amsterdam.”
Harry hat uns superpünktlich im Hotel abgeholt. Wir haben unseren Plan zusammen
festgelegt und er hat uns charmant und informativ durch Amsterdam geführt. Die
Tipps von ihm für den nächsten Tag waren auch gut und so konnten wir Amsterdam
gründlich erkunden. Es waren rundum gelungene Tage in dieser schönen Stadt.
Harry, bedankt voor een extra leuke avond. Volgend jaar zijn we er gewoon weer bij. Goede info en natuurlijk leuk dat je er een glaasje gluhwein of chocomel bij krijgt!
Cruise like the locals!
Captain Harry was our cruise pilot and cruise director. Captain Harry was terrific, very knowledgeable and informative as to the history and culture of Amsterdam.
You need to put this cruise on the top of your list for things to do in Amsterdam.
Despite it being a cold, sometimes damp day, Harry provided a very interesting and informative tour which whilst we were cold we did not want to cut short because it was so enjoyable. He did kindly take us to a great cafe for a warm drink during the tour, which was very welcome!
Wonderful introduction to Amsterdam
It is only right to start with the star of the show! Harry Maarse, your boat Captain is a passionate sailor and the canals of Amsterdam are his backyard. It is great quality to address a group and at the same time offer a personal experience to each individual. And Harry does it with ease and charm.
Overall a great tour and it doesn’t feel like a commercial experience. Please go for it!
