X'se tagħmel

I will welcome you at my houseboat in the center of Amsterdam. We will start with a short introduction on basic kayak techniques, and then plan a route that will show you the highlights you want to see, e.g. Anne Frank House, Skinny Bridge and others. You will be supplied with life vests and a snack/water, and then we enter the kayaks. First we will practise controlling the kayak, and then start our tour. We will kayak past monumental buildings, see the quaint houseboats and enjoy the city at its most beautiful. I will give you information on the history of Amsterdam, and will try to answer any questions you might have. We return to the houseboat after about 100 minutes. As I only guide a maximum of five participants per tour, it is a highly personal and friendly experience.

Please note: If only one person wants to do the tour, the price is €100.
Also: as the season is over, I can only organise tours by appointment. Please contact via +316 444 88911.
Other things to note
I expect you to be fit and able to go kayaking. I also expect you to be able to swim. You don't need any previous experience with kayaking as it is not difficult to do. You can leave items at the houseboat for safekeeping.

My name is Ed, born and raised in Amsterdam, and I work as professional classical musician. I love kayaking, and have kayaked not only in Amsterdam, but also in Belgium, England, Scotland and Western Canada. To see Amsterdam from a kayak is a magical experience that I love to share with others. I have kayaked with a wide range of people, from teenagers to seniors. The enthusiastic reactions I received inspired me to start tours on a daily basis. I hope to get the chance to meet you and show you my city in a unique way.

Fejn se tkun

In a kayak you get see Amsterdam from a unique vantage point. You also will see canals that are too small for the regular canal boats. It is a peacefull and personal way that makes you connect to this historic city like no other tour will.

Very cool experience that I would recommend to anyone. It's a great way to see Amsterdam. We went all over the city and it was nice and relaxing the whole time. Edward is very friendly and nice to chat with.

Edward is such a fantastic host! From the moment I met him, I knew it would be a safe and comfortable experience. It was a beautiful and relaxing kayaking tour through the city. The route we took was similar to most boat tour routes, but was extra special because of the kayaks :) I recommend this to everyone who enjoys kayaking! Edward was absolutely fantastic :)

Edwards tour of Amsterdam through the canals in kayaks was a perfect way to see the city. We met Edward at his house boat where he covered the basics of kayaking and rules of the canal. He then helped us into the kayak, and we were off! He took pictures and sent them to us so we didn’t have to worry about taking our phones into the water. His English is perfect and he’s knowledgeable about the city. I would recommend this to everyone and would 100% do it again.

Ontvangst in een smaakvol ingerichte woonboot, even de details doornemen, daarna direct de kajak in. Edward vroeg of we al iets wisten van Amsterdam (ja) en of we dus gewoon lekker wilden 'toeren'. Dat wilden we wel: er was weinig verkeer op het water op deze doordeweekse dag en er waren ook weinig toeristen (corona is toch ergens goed voor). Een unieke ervaring. Ga lekker vroeg, zolang het nog kan. Wij komen zeker nog eens terug.

It was a great experience, we would definitely recommend it. Ed is really kind and super friendly. If you want to see Amsterdam from a different point of view, you should do the tour with Ed.

Edward is such a cool guy. He welcomed us at his cozy woonboot and has told us many aspects and stories of kayaking. Containing his advanced-level experience, we managed to take a very, very, very amazing tour throughout the channels. I thought my stamina wouldn’t be enough to keep track of the group, however after I got used to my boat in 5-10 mins, I was really successful and fond of kayaking. Amstel, Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht... just an astonishing view and an amazing experience!! I’d absolutely do it again.
