Pure Bots Cruise for 6 People
May 2021
The boat was beautiful. It was a very fun experience. The drink options were fabulous and the seating area was very comfy and well decorated. Lots of space to move around freely and sit comfortably. The electric engine is divine. Silently gliding along the water. What a way to view the city. Expertly driven by Captain James with a nice balance of interesting facts about the city but also leaving you to enjoy the time in the group. Would recommend highly!

Supertime in superboats
Mar 2020 • Family
The last two years, my husband, family and me enjoyed two excellent trips with Pure Boats. One was in the summer and the other was in march. The season didn't made any difference: comfortable noiseless electric boats, high end hospitality, quality standard beer and wine and last but not least, we visited beautiful historic spots by gliding without any noise through the canals; in other words we had a reel feel good experience. Thank you James and Geertje. Hope to meet you again soon and we wish you a succesfull afterCorona-restart.

A perfect way to see Amsterdam
Sep 2020
We had two hours of magic cruising around the canals of Amsterdam, under the professional and very personal command of the Pureboats captain, munching on snacks and taking (moderate) advantage of the free bar. A classy way to get the know Amsterdam without the risk of being run over by a cyclist in the streets! Thanks for a very nice arrangement! Pureboats even managed to get the weather right!

Best boat tour in Amsterdam
Sep 2020
I rented a boat twice in a week with my family and friends and Pure Boats was perfect for both occasions. The boats were beautiful, full of charm and everything was present on board to make the ride even more unforgettable. The seats were really comfortable, the food really tasty and the skippers were also really nice, telling us in detail the history of Amsterdam and answering all our questions.
The booking process was also really smooth, thanks to Geerte's availability and kindness. Thank you for your professionalism and will definitely be back soon!

A beautiful introduction to Amsterdam
Sep 2020
Taking a boat trip is a great way to discover Amsterdam. My girlfriend and I took this tour on our first full day in the city and really enjoyed it. Our guide Coen was great. He had a relaxed and friendly manner, but was also very informative and able to answer any questions. We are very happy we took this longer trip of 2 hours (many other trips are shorter) as it gave us plenty of time to soak in all that Amsterdam has to offer. This trip was a beautiful introduction to Amsterdam.

Would recommend it to everyone.
Aug 2020 • Couples
I would recommend the boat trip to everyone, even if you are already familiar/native.
From the water you get a completely different view of the city.
if you ask me, more historic and romantic than from land. My company, the cold drinks and the welcoming tour guide made my day compleet.

Thank you Lisa for taking the time to write this wonderful 5* review. We agree, the city is so different seen from the beautiful canals! A totally different experience, which provides another perspective, even for people who have been living in Amsterdam for years. Don’t hesitate to let us know when you’re in town again, Geertje

best boat trip ever
Aug 2020
our party of 6 had the most amazing time, James and Clion were the most wonderful hosts, shared lots of knowledge and made us feel most welcome on board, the boat was immaculately clean, the snacks and wine were plentiful, and nothing was too much trouble. This was the highlight of our 4 days away and I cannot recommend this enough, we will definitely be returning. Well worth the price, I could have stayed on board all day, many thanks James and Clion it was brilliant.

Super Fun Canal Tour with Friends on a Beautiful Boat.
Jul 2020
We had a wonderful time on our Pure Boat canal tour! The boat was absolutely beautiful and our captain, Marco, was kind and experienced both with driving the boat and showing us points of interest in the city. We had a 7-year old on the boat and Marco was also good about keeping him engaged. We had such a great time seeing the sites and chatting we were surprised when it came to an end - if only it could have been longer!
