Always wanted to know how it is to life on a houseboat? Come and listen to the story from a real local. Born in Amsterdam with roots of many generations in the city. I love people and I love to share my life experience with others. If you're interested I can tell you also a lot about my experience as a freelance photojournalist.

Where you'll be

We stay on the houseboat in the center of Amsterdam. If the weather allows it, it is also possible to sit on the foredeck. Because of the small space and to give it a more personal character the reservation is limited to a max of four visitors. If you come with four you'll get a discount of 30%
