I’v visited Amsterdam many times and this is by far the best experience to say the least. SUP in the canals of AMS allowed me to see the city from a different angel, and the images I saw are very different. Getting the feet wet also helped me to get connected to the city in a different way. Special thanks to my tour guide Elaine who knows the city and the buildings very well. We had a wonderful time in the canals together. I would highly recommend this activity and the tour to others have have not experienced it yet. George

Make sure you get there early! You won’t see the full museum at a good pace, if you get there 2 hours before. 1 - 2 o’ clock is a good time. Definitely go on the ship.. a cool and great peace of art and depiction of pirate ships or ships made during that time. Definitely visit the cafe too great food and drink or snack.

It is an amazing museum. There is a lot of historical facts, events of the Netherlands's naval force. The old ship is fantastic and it gives a view about the life on the sea in the past.

This was an amazing way to see Amsterdam. I was a first time paddle boarder but Morene is a great teacher! I would highly recommend it.

It was amazing. Beautiful way to see the city, had lovely weather which was great
