Customer testimonionals about the best private boat rental Amsterdam

Stephen Sander

We had an absolutely amazing afternoon on the canals with Carl. The Undine is a stunning boat, and Carl is the perfect guide, fun, personable and very knowledgeable. Thank you for the delicious late lunch too! The afternoon felt like the best boat day out with a friend, rather than a business transaction. Thank you Carl for your hospitality and a memorable, fun afternoon on the canals! We will certainly be back!
