We are Robby and Anouk van Daalen parents of twins and proud owners of Rederij De Wester. In 2019 our Amsterdam experience cruise became one of the most popular and best reviewed experiences of Airbnb in the world, we are currently number 3 in the world on Airbnb with the most positive reviews and bookings. Why do our guests praise our canal trip as ‘the best cruise ever’? Not only because of our friendly skippers Gijs, William, Storm, Karin and Anja who have a great love for the city and heart for their guests, but also because of our generous choice of delicious drinks and tasty snacks, the cosy atmosphere aboard and our comfortable boat. So lean back, relax and enjoy.

This experience was beautiful. My favorite views of the city are from the canals so it was perfect. With two hours, you get to see more of the city than through the regular canal tours. Willem, our captain, was knowledgeable and easy to talk to and ask questions. The vegan bitterballs were delicious! There was plenty to eat and drink. It was a fantastic and relaxing couple hours through Amsterdam. :)

Our favorite experience in Amsterdam! Our captain was Willem and he was a great! The boat was comfortable, great drinks and snacks, and Willem even stopped to get us some fresh bitterballen to go with the gin. Well worth the experience. We did another evening boat ride with another company and there is no comparison. Will definitely be recommending this experience to friends who visit Amsterdam.

I’m an Amsterdam local who’s been on a lot of boat cruises. This was one of the absolute best! The boat is very nice & comfortable, Captain Marc was very engaging and told great stories from a lifelong local’s point of view - I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about Amsterdam, the snacks were delicious, the open bar was great. Highly recommend this to everyone - travelers and locals!
