Cruising with Capt. Storm - Captain Storm was fantastic. Very funny and informative at the same time. Really enjoyed his stories about Amsterdam and the people, also the culture of the area. An excellent way to spend time sailing through the canals and seeing how fascinating the waterway perspective is.

Great cruise to do with friends. - Captain Erik was an excellent host, boat was small and intimate and very comfortable which we wanted. Went with 6 other friends, plus two other couples on our evening cruise for a total of 12 . Saw all the sites and Erik told us a number of personal stories about his family experiences in Amsterdam. Food and drink (beer, wine, and water) were great. Stopped for some piping hot bitterballen and learned the proper way to coat with mustard. Thank you Capt. Erik for a wonderful evening!

Best way to see Amsterdam! - Captain Erik was a stellar story teller, master captain and brought to life Amsterdam’s history. The boat was meticulously clean and in “ship shape”. The fact that we were 12 guests on the boat made it perfect to hear and be intimate enough.

Wonderful small group tour, very informative - Beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon spent on the canals of Amsterdam with Capt. Storm! The Captain was very knowledgeable and kept a running narrative of the history as well as current events in Amsterdam. Was very happy to answer any questions and the snacks, beer, wine, soft drinks and a "special" gin were delightful - plus we picked up very hot, very fresh Bitterballen along the way and as an added bonus, we were shown the proper way to eat them.
