Holds 30 passengers

Booked on Viator and it limited the number of people I could book to 15 so I thought that would be the maximum number of people on our tour so I booked all 15 spots for my group of 14. When we got there I found out the boat actually holds 30 so it was not a private excursion. Everyone in my group enjoyed the experience and it is well worth the cost.

Very friendly hosts. ..good seating . Perfect for a sun day . Drinks well priced. The only thing that coud improve was that we could not hear everything that the drink host was saying without a mike and whenever she turned her head. Otherwise it was a perfect cruise.

It was super relaxing to cruise along the canals. The guides were very polite, and informative. It was long enough to be worth the money and short enough to not get bored. My 13 year old daughter enjoyed it too.

Friendly, humourous,engaging and informative. This was the second time we booked this particular boat having had a great experience four years ago on our own.This time we were meeting our son and daughter in Amsterdam and thought it would be a real treat. It turned out as we expected with all of us enjoying every aspect of the trip.

Pepyn and Saar were wonderful! We chose this boat tour based on the reviews and were impressed with how kind they were to our kids. Tour can get boring for young kids (ages 2,6,9) but Pepyn made efforts to keep the kids interested. They loved it!
