Great introduction to the city!

We really enjoyed our experience with Mark. Being a private tour we had the opportunity to ask and discuss anything we wanted about the city. Mark was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour over the larger group tours because it is so personalized.

Perfect start to our stay in Amsterdam

Such a great way to start our time in Amsterdam! We took this tour in the morning. It was so peaceful, the canals were fairly empty, and it was a great way to be introduced to the city. We got a little bit of history, current events, architecture, and economics! Whatever question we had, Captain Paping was able to answer.

Loved this canal tour. We took it at 7:30 pm. Great guide, just the right amount of information given. Chilly night and he had heated seats and warm blankets. Chilled aperol spritz and champagne. Perfect night

Thank you for your review of our tour. We're glad you enjoyed the Aperol and the tour itself. :) The Aperol spritz we don't offer every time. So you were in luck :)

Personalized View of Amsterdam - an excellent way to see the city.

Full disclosure: this was our second canal tour in a span of 3 days. Because everyone mentioned how canal tours were the highlight of their trips, we decided to book two private tours. Captain Rederij Paping led our second go-around. What was great is that he quickly asked us what we already saw as well as if we had a particular interest, and without batting an eye, he customized our tour with just the right amount of history and speed. It was definitely a highlight for our stay in Amsterdam for sure, and we highly recommend. In fact, we asked about a restaurant, and he tried to get us a reservation on a busy Saturday night. While we were not able to get in, he dropped us closer to a few streets with a lot to choose from which was an added bonus!

We went on a fabulous canal tour as a family of 5 on Skipper Paap's cute boat. It was comfortable with cushion seating and he had cold beverages for us. We learned quite a bit about the canals and Amsterdam all with stunning views the entire ride. This is a fun and unique way to see the city in a small, comfortable setting with your own group. I highly recommend this tour!

The best way to discover the beauty of Amsterdam. The tour was so calm, peaceful and romantic. Also the guide (and the owner) of the boat is so welcoming, nice and knowledgeable. You will hear the entertaining history on every corner. This tour is a MUST, if you didn’t take such tour, you didn’t visit the real Amsterdam.

Mark and Cynthia were an absolute delight ! Not only did they make us feel very comfortable, but they also taught us a lot of interesting things about Amsterdam, the canals and ships. You can really feel the love and passion they have for this lifestyle. As far as the boat itself was also very cosy and nice. It was clean and had a functional setup with a table in the middle and the seats on the inner borders. This is the perfect activity for all types of groups i promise ! We are definitly coming back! Once again, Cynthia and Mark, THANK YOU WE HAD SUCH A WONDERFUL TIME !

Very special evening

There were only 4 of us on this cruise...perhaps because of the rainy day. The owner/operator was awesome! He talked about the history of Amsterdam and the construction of the canals, including describing the differences in architecture between the old and new. We saw a lot of the city which made navigating overland much easier. He also pointed out the library, Eye Museum for movies/film and This is Holland. We had not planned to visit any of these and ended up going to all of them, which greatly added to our experience in Amsterdam.

I booked through Viator and was allocated Rederij Paping. We landed on our feet with him. He lives in Amsterdam and effortlessly chatted to us about the city and many other things during our tour. We learned so much about Amsterdam- this is our 3rd visit - that made our stay so much more enjoyable after this trip. Once Rederij knew what sort of things we liked he made several suggestions and we really enjoyed ourselves as a result. The trip itself was interesting, fun and warm thanks to the heated seats. Rederij is as friendly and charming as Amsterdam itself. I would most highly recommend his boat tour. Do it early in your trip to make the most of his advice. Thank you.

Small group and small boat was a big plus. The captain was friendly, and very knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam. His personality made us feel very welcome in his city. He even served us cinnamon candy and stroopwafels so we could taste a couple of local delicacies. I wish we could remember his name. He was have Jamacian and half Dutch born and raised in Amsterdam. The 90 minutes flew by and we were sad when the cruise ended.
