Discover the surroundings of Amsterdam, by speedboat (70 km/ph) on the water where no tourist can come. Old picturesque villages, a castle hidden by the sea, shiplocks. I pick you up in Amsterdam center at 'Cafe Hanneke’s Boom'. This is a private tour! We start nearby central station Amsterdam and sail to 'the Orange Locks'. This is the entrance for large ships from the sea to Amsterdam. In the early days this was open sea, now it is a well protected large lake. With my private high speed boat our journey begins. First stop will be a small village built on a dike, 'Durgerdam'. Open the throttle, with 60 km/ph we will cross the large lake to Pampus. This island is a large military defend fortress, but mostly underground. We will drink Pampus beer. Back on our fast speedboat, up to Muiden. This is a must see when you visit the Netherlands. Muiderslot (AD 1285) is a castle in perfect condition, we make a short walk in the small village Muiden. This medieval center has still the small houses and narrow streets. Once it was the a competitor of Amsterdam. Time to go home. With the fast speedboat we are racing back to the 'Orange lock’. As of June, the corona restrictions have been largely lifted. This is a private outdoor tour, there is no real chance of corona contamination, my tour is very safe. It is also possible to sail normally in June, Pampus Island will be open again.
My name is Eric. At the moment I am teaching scriptwriting and mentoring young techno start-ups. I love to help people and inspiring them realize their dreams. I worked as a TV director for Dutch television. I made a popular tourist TV show for RTL-4 (for 6 years). Here I showed how special Amsterdam and it’s region is. The rich 16th century and our fight against the water has shaped the landscape and the Dutchman. I know the hidden gems and special local places and have good contacts. You discover windmills, our dikes, old castles and traditional villages by the sea. My passion is telling stories, we will sail to places where no tourists can go. With my speedboat (70 km p/h) I tell you what the DNA is of the Dutch. Working together, battle against the water. Join me on my boat!
