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.

I would definitely recommend this cruise. Robbert has curated an experience that is very comfortable and charming. The food was great, we left feeling full and did not even need to get dinner afterwards. The boat was made comfortable with nice lighting, comfy cushions, and soft blankets to help you stay warm when the air cools off. Marc was a great captain / waiter / tourguide / photographer / storyteller / navigator - no joke, this guy did everything and he did it well. He was also a local and able to speak to how the city has changed over time. I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone looking for a fun, comfortable way to see Amsterdam from the canals.

Great way to explore the canals of Ámsterdam. The boat is lovely and all the details from food, drinks and setting was great. Our captain was a truly 'Amsterdanian' and knew a lot about the city. Recommended!
