The Museum Van Loon is located in a fine mansion overlooking the Keizersgracht canal; it was designed by Adriaen Dortsman in 1672 and the house’s first tenant was Ferdinand Bol, a pupil of Rembrandt. Between 1884 and 1945 it was home to the Van Loon family, who founded the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie or VOC) and were one of the wealthiest families in Amsterdam. Today this is one of the few 17th-century canal-side townhouses in Amsterdam to have retained its original integrity and the elegant double-fronted mansion still stands with its vast proportions intact. It certainly reflected the Van Loon family’s elevated social standing by its sheer size, with grand apartments stuffed with Louis XV furniture, fine porcelain and precious silverware leading on to a procession of yet more ornate rooms. Furnished in the style of the Dutch aristocracy of Golden Age, the walls are smothered with family portraits and the grand staircase is constructed from decorative marble with an ornate brass balustrade. A formal knot garden lies behind the house; beyond that is a coach house built in the style of a colonnaded Greek temple.

Whenever you want to see our beautiful city, you of course want to do it in the most relaxing way. Our boats are the best way to go. We have a spacious open boat with a fully electric engine, so no annoying engine noises. The seats are from the best and most comfortable cushions, which during the colder days are heated softly. And the really nice comfy pillows make you feel like a real prince cruising through the canals. And we don't believe in audio tours, they are not personal. That is why we have trained our guides to tell you the most amazing stories of the canals, which normally only the locals know. You'll get a real sense of the city and its secrets. And besides that we have a fully equipped bar, where you can choose from a wide variety of beverages. From soda's like Coca Cola, Fanta and Sprite to Strawberry mojuito's. A real treat. Beware, this tour is done by my amazing friends of Flagship. If you want to have a captain tour, please book the All Inclusive

The difference between Amsterdam during daytime and Amsterdam during night time is literally a difference between night and day. In the evening as soon as the sun sets all light will go on, on the bridges and buidlings. Amsterdam will transform in to one of the most romantic cities in the world. Maybe even more romantic than Paris?? In our open boats you will have the best view of the city possible. And with our quit electric engines, you can indulges all the sites, sounds and smells of the city. Add one of our lovely drinks with that (sold seperately). And you have a perfect night on the canals. Keep in mind, This tour is not done by me, but by one of my amazing friends, who I love working with.
