What's it All About?

Jesse, Neil and Alec are three dudes from the west coast of North America who found themselves in Amsterdam. They realized that they were passionate about history, had good people skills, and loved the sound of their own voices, so becoming tour guides was the logical career choice. In 2015, they created an Amsterdam boat experience unlike others. How, you ask? By providing a service that they themselves would enjoy — intimate boat tours with genuine, flowing conversations. And this is how Those Dam Boat Guys made a splash! Want to float like a local? Don’t miss this.

PUBLIC TOURS

Cruise Amsterdam’s canals like a local on their small, electric boats. Bring your own food, drinks and whatever you wish to smoke (wink wink). It’s an interactive boat ride (in English), so you make the experience — with the occasional adult topics and adult language thrown in. Kick back and enjoy Amsterdam the way it’s meant to be enjoyed.

1.5 hours | €23 for students and €27.50 for adults | Max group size of 7

PRIVATE TOURS

Don’t want to float with strangers? Go for a private tour! Enjoy the fine company of your private captain and the narrow canals all to yourself. Bring your own supplies or pre-order their epic mezze platters and drinks to skip the fuss. Prefer another language? Their captains also speak Nederlandse, Deutsche, Espanol and Australian!

1.5 hours up to 7 hours | Starts from 150 | Max group size of 8 or up to 50

“This boat tour with Captain Julian was amazing!!! The city of Amsterdam is beautiful to see from the canals and our tour guide Julian made the city come alive even more with the knowledge he shared. He was funny, friendly, and professional! A MUST do!!”

 

– Melinda S.

“If you want a picture perfect tour with information on architecture and such, go with one of those other companies that stack 50-something tourists into a boat and give you a scripted tour. The information you get from the guide is by interaction.  Go for TDBG if you want something different.”

 

– Zobator

“If you’re looking for a more personal experience, then this is the one for you. We can’t wait to come back and set sail with them again, this time for longer because 90 minutes on a beautiful sunny day just wasn’t enough. We would’ve spent the entire day with Lee if we could have!”

 

– Holly S.

WIA Family

Untamed. Easygoing. Hilarity guaranteed. Every hang out with Jesse, Neil and Alec starts with a hug and inevitably spirals to side-splitting laughter.  Oh yeah, and booze. We met while working at an improv theatre years ago. All of them have that West Coast-cool mixed with Amsterdam savviness. What we love about them is their creative and unpretentious vibes, and that’s exactly what they bring to their boat tours. This is why we love having them on board.
