Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Stylish open and closed boat tours, live guided by the local captain. Leemstar Amsterdam provides in 100% electric canal tours with personal atmosphere and local knowledge! All this on our luxurious 100% electric closed and open boats. Tesla’s on the water where you can walk around in! They function as floating living rooms which cruise you along the beautiful sights of Amsterdam. Drinks and Bites available on board! The local skipper gives you the best introduction to Amsterdam. During this cruise you will see more then just the city centre canals. The cruise varies in classic and more modern parts of the city and shows a bit of the recent developments in Amsterdam. Max 12 persons. So no crowded/massive tour boat. Engage in dialogue and learn lots of things about Amsterdam! Leemstar boats are also available for "Private" and small group tours. Both a great experience! Avoid the crowd, travel the canals in style. All cruises are live guided in English. Cruise with Leemstar!

As a tourist in Amsterdam, I had been intrigued by its canals and its boats and homes abutting them. After looking at the various tours offered by the various canal cruise companies, I chose Leeemstar’s. It was one of the highlights of my two-week stay in this city! Arnout, the boat captain and tour guide was superb, sharing enough information and fun facts about the various aspects of Amsterdam history and canal life, without overwhelming one. He also passed around photos and maps to help illustrate what he was explaining. I’m so glad that I chose this company! Small group setting, willingness to answer all questions, knowledgeable, professional, interesting and entertaining guide... what’s not to like?!

Arnout is great, and he has a beautiful boat. We took a group tour, three of us and two other people. Above four people the price is the same for a private tour. Either way, Arnout is a fantastic guide who really knows Amsterdam and particularly its waterways. We had a blast and would recommend this tour to anyone.

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 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
