St Nicholas Boat Club Amsterdam

Just wondering if anyone has done their free boat tour.

It sounds awesome.

Yes! And it was a great time....one of the best things we did in Amsterdam.

We tipped 10 euros each.

Bring something to drink/snack on and your camera. It'll be a great time!!

Note: That you should try to sign up rather early. We did it at the last minute and only got on because someone didn't show up.

We toured with them in '09. Well worth the 10 euro tip.
The guide was entertaining and informative.
We hope to visit them again this May.

Awesome, thank you so much. We'll do it, sounds so much better than the tourist boats.

Yes, but remember that the guide often doesn't say much. He'll answer questions, but it isn't a guided tour. Rather, a great way to relax and enjoy the city from a different perspective. You also get down a lot of canals that the big boats can't.

Also, bring beer or snacks. Anything goes. You can smoke cigarettes as well. I think you can even bring weed onboard (our guide/driver regaled us with a discussion of his latest batch of plants that he was going to sell). My DH was in heaven LOL
