Private boat tour Amsterdam

The big advantage of booking a private tour of Amsterdam by boat, besides privacy and exclusivity, is that you get to decide where we go. Skilfully navigating the city’s many canals, your knowledgeable skipper will take you to places that are not on the standard routes of any of the regular canal cruise companies. Perhaps you would like to arrange for entertainment on board, or a tour guide to tell you all about our city? No problem! This is your private boat tour and you can customise it any way you want.

Private boat tour with dinner

A private canal cruise is even better when enjoyed with nice food and drinks. You can combine your private tour with different types of catering services. From an array of delectable finger foods to a formal dinner and anything in between, we’ll be glad to arrange your catering for you. How about a running dinner? In this arrangement, your skipper will make stopovers at some of Amsterdam’s top restaurants, each of which serves one of its specialties to your group, either on board your boat or inside the restaurant.
