    Best boat tour ever!!
    Joe_P, Sept 2023
    It is the best. Heard from friends that THE Captain Jack cruise was the best. Small and intimate…8 people max. Not one of those with 40 people on it. Jack is great fun and full of knowledge. We bad so much fun we booked a a other cruise for the evening. Highly recommend!
    Great Afternoon on Canals

    We had a great canal tour with Captain Jack. He is very personable and has a wealth of information he is willing to share and answered lots of questions. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    Captain Jack was a great host! He was very entertaining and told great stories. We enjoyed the tour and all that we learned about beautiful Amsterdam! Highly recommended!
    Captain Jack is the best!
    Veronica_J, Aug 2023
    Captain Jack was an excellent tour guide and host! We booked the 8 people tour but my husband and I ended up being the only couple so it became a private tour. We were thankful he didn’t cancel. He shared many fun facts while navigating the canals. Variety and plenty of alcohol and nonalcoholic drinks and snacks. We enjoyed the mini stroopwafels! He dropped us closer to our hotel at the end of the tour. Definitely worth the extra money to take a cruise with Captain Jack.
    entertaining highlights of Amsterdam

    Very entertaining and even had our kids paying attention! Hilarious stories and educational at the same time.
    Doug_T, July 2023
    Captain was great. Very informative and funny. Great drinks and snacks. Showed us all around the city.
    Great small evening tour with drinks and snacks
    Mathew_M, July 2023
    Captain Jack was knowledgeable, friendly, low key and with his knowledge and the snacks and drinks, this was a very enjoyable evening and worth the extra money. I recommend this tour. Suggestion: go in the late evening and the bridge lights will be on.
    Captain Jack canal trip.
    Linda_W, July 2023
    We were stranded in Antwerp on the day our trip was originally booked but Jack was so helpful and rebooked us for the following day without any additional fees. The canal trip was such a great experience much of which is down to Jack's friendly nature and amusing and informative commentary. I recommend this trip without reservation.
    Relaxed cruise
    Richard_S, July 2023
    Captain Jack, an Amsterdam local, was knowledgeable and provided good natured commentary. A relaxing way to see the city and it’s miles of canals.
    Great customer service
    Denise_L, June 2023
    Captain Jack’s great customer service!! He was very generous in helping to accommodate my travel plans to ensure we could take his cruise.
    Holiday highlight!
    Elizabeth_C, June 2023
    We had a wonderful time with captain Jack aboard his mighty vessel. He is friendly and knowledgeable of the area. It’s truly amazing to see the city from the canals in a private setting instead of a ‘cattle hauler’ full of people. Full bar and yummy snacks are included. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend!
    Great canal tour
    Lauren_M, June 2023
    Captain Jack was full of interesting information and stories. His boat was comfortable and he served us lovely drinks and snacks. I’d recommend his tour to anyone going to Amsterdam.
    The one and only
    Kathleen_W, June 2023
    I was lucky enough to have a Captain who did not cancel a booking because I was his only passenger. AMAZING, informative, relaxing, just enough knowledge and enough peace. Thank you for a fab 90 minutes on the beautiful canals!

    elizabeth_A, May 2023
    Very relaxed and personable! We went down a lot of canals that larger boats can not navigate. Highly recommend!
    Debbie_W, May 2023
    A very average canal tour that was not worth the price. As we we in the back, outside part of the boat, we could not hear any of his comments as we cruised. We were served drinks as promised, but no snacks unless you were seated inside.
    Captain Jack
    Linda_F, May 2023
    Captain Jack’s tour was great! The craft was waiting for us at our designated time and upon boarding we were given champagne as our first choice. The tour was as if you were traveling with an old friend that loves their city and they wanted to share their secrets and knowledge so you too could pass this on to the next. . Our group was a family of one Grandparent and three Grandchildren ages 70 , 34, 24, and 19. Great cruise and a wonderful beginning to our holiday.
    Highly recommend
    Beth_n, Mar 2023
    Captain Jack has a great sense of humor and really does make a mean gin and tonic. Taking a private tour on a small boat with a local guide made a huge difference in the quality of information we got. The boat was comfortable and the snacks and drinks were great.
    Had a wonderful time - would definitely recommend!
    Bhargavi_P, Oct 2022
    Jack was an incredible guide! He shared lots of historical facts/stories about Amsterdam. He had a great sense of humor as well which made the tour even more enjoyable. The small group tour is definitely the way to go - it’s more personalized that way. Would definitely recommend!
