Probably the best way to experience Amsterdam is from the water. These guys and galls offer the best, most intimate and informative boat tour in our humble opinion. What sets those Dam Boat Guys apart from the usual boating company is their focus on making the trip a relaxing, casual and fun experience. Because of the small group size you can have great interaction and conversations with your captain and fellow travellers. You can ask any question you’d like to your captain, something that isn’t possible on the larger boat tour cruises.
All their captains are experienced and really knowledgeable about Amsterdam. Be it its history, culture or the more recent developments. However, Those Dam Boat Guys encourage their guides to change things up a little. No scripted stories, but storytelling from the heart. This results in no tour ever being the same as each captain will have his or her own interests and specialities.
Everybody is encouraged to bring their own drinks and snacks! This isn’t a “party boat” but they want everybody to enjoy themselves. Everybody is welcome to bring whatever they like. They’ll even send you a map that points out the best places that are close to the meeting point where you can buy some drinks and snacks (coffeeshop included).
This option might be an added bonus for you, or not. Those Dam Boat Guys let you smoke a joint (or cigarettes) during the boat tour. They maintain one rule: don’t bother other people with your smokes. If anyone doesn’t like your smells the seating on the boat will be rearranged. Smokers will be moved to the backside so that those on the front won’t be bothered.
