  • Captain was very difficult to understand, it was a cool afternoon, and windy some windows were open which did not help. One and a half hour not well spent.  more »
  • This, in my opinion, is probably the best boat tour on the canals of Amsterdam. Not only was the captain/tour guide interesting and entertaining but the boat was beautiful. A hundred years old and ver...  more »
  • It was Father's day. Unexpectedly nice weather, and we were with dad, father-in-laws and kids in Amsterdam. While cruising on the Pont to Amsterdam Noord I thought how wonderful it would be to be able to sail with both fathers and the rest for an hour by the city instead of the Ij. A short search brought me to the site of Classic Boat Tours. At the touch of a button, I got someone on the line immediately. Unfortunately all the boats were rented out. Logical on Father's Day. But still during the phone call the man on the other side of the line saw that there would be little possibility. From 17:30 to 18:30 hours. Get off and finish at the Amstel Hotel. Since 1 of the fathers is badly on the bone, that could be a play Buster. So the brutal request, whether a pick up in Amsterdam Noord was also possible. This proved to be no problem. What a great service for us. Now we could finally surprise the fathers and kids. And it got great. Captain Ingrid was helpful from start to finish. After explaining to us the drill (toilet, very well-stocked fridge, outside terrace) and providing us with drinks, we started. And then came for us the most beautiful. Captain Ingrid immediately took care of the children. They were allowed to send (together naturally) give gas and they got all kinds of tips! We also got all sorts of beautiful anecdotes about the city of Amsterdam. The route was great and very well chosen. Ingrid felt the company flawlessly. She even stopped the boat exactly in front of the Amstel Hotel so the ladies could take a look at the picture. If you ever want to rent a boat with stories in Amsterdam, this is our tip!

  • I planned a private dinner cruise for a group of 10 with Classic Boat Tours for my wife's birthday last week. Along the way, the entire process of planning the event was effortless. The menu options were well thought out and it took very little time to find a package that worked for the group. The cruise itself was extraordinary. Our Captain, Fred, and first mate, Hans, were truly exceptional. Just the right amount of humor, history and general friendliness to enhance the evening. While we were on the boat, we decided to extend the tour for another hour and they handle it easily. The tour was the highlight of our week in Amsterdam. If you are thinking of this type of excursion, Classic Boat Tours will exceed all of your expectations.
  • Very professional and enjoyable trip. Ingrid, our skipper, made our trip extra special and the food was excellent. We were picked up in the lobby of the Amstel Hotel which is an impressive starting point for business guests and we were able to make a choice from the menu on board - this met with everyone's wishes.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff members. The food on board with live cooking was fantastic! Perfect for company events or meetings with clients.
  • Super cruise through Amsterdam in the sunset. A great way to see Amsterdam
  • Amazing experience excellent quality and wonderful service
