Private boat tour

—explore the canals

The Private Boat Tour is especially suitable for small groups (max. 12 persons) like family and friends, colleagues looking for a private setting.

You can bring your own food and drinks (like locals do) or let us arrange the catering for you.

Special wishes; like a marriage proposal, celebration, or anniversary? Let us arrange something special.

We cruise in the 1928 former Dutch government boat used by Heads of States, Mayors, and the Dutch Royal family.

See you on board!
Cheers Captain Dave!
