There are many canal tour operators to choose from, but we are glad we went with Leemstar Cruises.  The boat was a little smaller then some of the others we saw cruising up and down, but this allowed for a more intimate and personal experience. It was raining during our cruise, which made the city lights twinkle and glow. It was so romantic!

The captain/owner is from Amsterdam and actually lives right along the canals. He shared tons of information with us and answered all of our questions. Taking a canal cruise is a great way to experience Amsterdam in a new light.

Captain Jack was excellent. He was born and raised in Amsterdam and had a wealth of information about what we were seeing. The small ship is wonderful. Much better than being on a "tourist trap" ship with dozens of other people!

First trip to Amsterdam was incredible! One of the highlights was our canal cruise with “Captain Jack” of Leemstar. Jack was extremely knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. The small group environment was ideal for a ride in the traditional wooden Dutch boat. The boat was as lovely as it was comfortable. When traveling to Amsterdam, a cruise with Leemstar is a must. 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

My husband, daughter, and I booked this excellent cruise the day of. Arnout is so laid back and accommodating. The cruise was wonderful, and as I looked around at the other cruise boats on the canals, I was so happy we’d chosen the Leemstar. We felt safe, we learned a lot, and we felt so comfortable during the cruise. Thank you, Arnout!

Lots of fun! Nice to go on a sunny day. Captain was very patient when we got lost. Enjoyed that he had grown up in the area. Felt like we got an inside overview of the area.
