We booked the night tour during the Amsterdam Light Festival, so the tour was aimed at showing us the street art that was decorating Amsterdam.

It was really cold, but boy oh boy did we enjoy the trip. Our captain had made pancakes and brought also wine, so by mid-trip we were all (all is around 8 people, the boats are cozy) kinda tipsy.

Quite the experience. I had heard of Amsterdam boat tours but wanted something different than the typical tour. Did we hit the jackpot. Captain was an amazing storyteller, we got to see most of the light art and enjoyed our 2+ hour trip around.

Amazing way to discover Amsterdam, fully recommended if you want something different than what others do over there.

We had the best time on our canal tour. There was about 12 of us on the boat but the other people in our group talked amongst themselves so my friends and I basically had the tour guide to ourselves for an hour and a half! The tour was very informal and we got to ask all our burning questions. Our tour guide ( can't remember his name but he's from South Africa) was great and very knowledgeable! We got to go down small and big canals and saw a lot of the city at night (9 pm tour). It was very laid back and just a great time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! plus free stickers at the end:)

Great tour with Neil. Small cosy groups, good info, brought to you with a healthy dose of humor and funny anecdotes. Decent comprehension of the English language is recommended to keep up though. Those Dam Boat Guys were recommended by us through friends who lived in Amsterdam for a while and I have to agree with them!
Thanks for the trip! - Hans & Sanne

We took this canal tour the day we arrived in Amsterdam and it was the perfect way to start your visit to this fabulous city. It was relaxing after an overnight flight from the states, (one guy actually fell asleep! ) but also our captain gave us great cultural and historical information about the city and he was informative and hilarious. (And indeed we passed so may bored looking people riding other tours!!)
Also the captains are able to give you recommendations for things to see and do on your visit that you may not have thought of. Get the inside track and enjoy a laidback and entertaining view of the city!
