We take you for an unforgettable evening expedition through the canals of Amsterdam. The city slows down in the evening and the canals are calm and serene. As the MANA is a small boat, we bring you to places the big boats cannot come! You hop on board in front of the Rijksmuseum, where you can find a comfortable spot and order your favourite drink. We have a wide selection of handpicked wines, local beers and of course: tasty cocktails! The first drink is included, so take whatever you feel like! We serve it with a variety of nuts. Starting off, our captain Sebas introduces the crew and the tour. We are always curious to the people we have on board and encourage you to ask questions if you have any! We are your local guides and tell you everything about the history of Amsterdam and the Dutch culture. After 1,5 hour of cruising through the city center, we bring you back safely at the place where we started. So it is a complete tour, and all you have to do is sit and relax!
My co-hosts Sebas & Twan and I are passionate about three things: Amsterdam, boats, and having a good time! So it is no surprise we love to welcome you on board and show you the beautiful sights of Amsterdam! Sebas has been on the water for many years and is a very skilled captain. Twan, as being handy himself, decided to build a boat on his own! He transformed an old rescue boat into a luxury canal cruise which he named MANA. Which comes from the Hawaiian philosophy and means: all power and spirit comes from within. I have been working as a hostess and tour guide on the water for more than 3 years, next to my job as a teacher. When the boat was built, I decided to follow my true passion and now I'm fulltime on the water and making people happy all the time! Follow us on Instagram; www.instagram.com/manaboattours
We serve a variety of nuts next to your drink and have olives and crisps on board.
We serve tasty cocktails (Dark&Stormy's, Gin&Tonic's, Aperol Spritz and more, come try them out!), local beers from Brouwerij…
The captain is a pro, but if you feel a bit unsafe on the water, we have a life jacket for you on board. No worries!
During the 1,5 hour tour you will see, among other things, the UNESCO’s heritage canal rings with typical Amsterdam 17th century warehouses, the Amstel river with the iconic Skinny bridge, the oldest part of the city including the Red Light district and the old Open Harbour. We will also highlight places we love to visit ourselves, such as cafe's, bars and boutiques.
