The staff of Those Dam Boat Guys were very helpful and friendly, was patient even when one of our group members was 10 min late. We spent the 90-min boat trip with Captain Gideon, who was super energetic and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend!

This a smaller boat max 10 people and it is well worth it. The guide is very enthusiastic knowledgeable and funny. The tour isn't a set route each time as the site states it's customized for each group and that is what happened with us.

We had a really great time. The tour was laid-back but interesting, and captain Mark let our son drive the boat (shhh, don't tell anyone).

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

We went during daylight, but I think this would be great any time of day - It's so much fun and very informative - and the canals are just beautiful!

Hi there, We do indeed offer tours where people can smoke on the boat. And we do not offer smoke-free tours, however, we always ask if there are smokers on the boat before the tour starts. If yes, we make sure to put the... More
