What you'll do

Drinks & snacks
Hop on and order whatever you like, the first drink is on the house! You can choose from all the drinks on the menu, such as tasty cocktails (Aperol Spritz, Dark&Stormy, Gin&Tonics, and more!), handpicked wines, local beers from Brouwerij 't IJ and Heineken, Kombucha's and soda's. We serve the drinks with a variety of nuts on the side.

The Tour
Starting off in the historical center, we tell you about the origin of the city. Why are the houses of all different shapes and how come a lot of them are so crooked? Why are the canals made and where are these houseboats coming from? As being locals ourselves, we also tell you some fun facts about our culture. During the whole trip, we encourage you to ask us whatever you are interested in, such as things you see during the tour or tips for bars and restaurants

My co-hosts Sebas & Twan and I are passionate about three things: Amsterdam, boats, and having a good time! So it is no surprise we love to welcome you on board and show you the beautiful sights of Amsterdam!

Sebas has been on the water for many years and is a very skilled captain. Twan, as being handy himself, decided to build a boat on his own! He transformed an old rescue boat into a luxury canal cruise which he named MANA. Which means: all power and spirit comes from within.

I have been working as a hostess and tour guide on the water for more than 3 years, next to my job as a teacher. When the boat was built, I decided to follow my true passion and now I'm fulltime on the water and making people happy all the time!

We loved our experience on the canal cruise! It was a small group and felt much more personal than going on one of the bigger, more traditional boats. The drinks were delicious, every seat on the boat has a great view and you have a chance to connect with other travelers. I highly recommend choosing this tour over any of the more commercialized ones.

The hosts were wonderful and the tour was comprehensive yet concise. Far more personal than other tour boats in the area. Definitely worth it.
