About Open Boat Tours
Experience Amsterdam from the water with an open sloop. From the boat you will have the best view of the picturesque capital. The captain will also act as your guide and has endless stories to tell about the places of interest in Amsterdam that you will pass by. Furthermore, because it operates on electricity, it is also sustainable.

Hello Martin - The tour we took was an open boat with approximately 12 passengers. The guide was excellent as was the tour. Not sure about any private tours. Enjoy Amsterdam!
