Guided private company boat trip on the canals and on the rivers IJ and Amstel
For the private Amsterdam boat trip you can choose between a private local guide on a classic saloon boat or for a barge; an open, however comfortable boat.
We are specialized in international companies based in Amsterdam or in tourist and foreign corporate groups, because of our international background in tourism and group guiding.
Lex and the City has started it’s guiding on private boats on river Seine in Paris a long time ago. We have also been active in other countries.
You can feel our international spirit and we speak 4 languages: French, German, English and Dutch. (If desired, spoken mixed up during one single Amsterdam boat tour. )
However we are locals and Lex and the City is a Amsterdam based dutch tour company; meaning we have been living and guiding here for a very long time.

An example of a private boat tour in Amsterdam for both a local and international company
The track with the private boat started in East Amsterdam, next to the Windmill, at Mooie Boules and Kop van Oost.
It finished next to Central station. (Oosterdokseiland; nice area.)
Drinks were included, as was our private guiding on the canals and on river Amstel.
People from the offices of EY in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam had gathered to discuss business, however to mingle and relax afterwards as well (On the water with us). The review of EY of the company trip is to be found beneath.
This is a typical corporate group client for us, as we have a tour company background in Paris and the owner of Lex and the City, Lex van Buuren has studied European Tourism Management on the Bournemouth University.
So with Lex and the City you have 4 languages on board to choose from: French, English, German and Dutch. (In the case of Lex van Buuren himself he even has done boat trips speaking those 4 languages mixed up. :p)
Relaxed approach of the private sightseeing boat track over the river IJ, the canals and the river Amstel
Starting at the windmill in East, we will first discover the Oosterdok area. Sailing further in the direction of the Marine area and Nemo. Than south heading for Blauwbrug and Herengracht. And so on. A lot of highlights together. :)
The last part of the private boat sightseeing outing we will fill up with the (new) treasures along the river IJ: Eye, Adamtoren, Westerdok, Maritime terrain, Muziekgebouw….adding some “New Amsterdam” to it.
Or, if you finish at Oosterdokseiland, we will finish with a round, including the library (OBA), Maritime area, Nemo, Amrath “Amsterdam School” Hotel…
It is a safe idea: we are already there and still can have as much guided boat group fun as is possible within our time schedule.
If you desire, we will walk your group to the restaurant afterwards and tell something on the way on the street if one desires that. It is an example of the way we personalize your company outing on the water.
On the day itself it might also be necessary to change things because of traffic, temporary regulations etc.
We know what is your aim and it is up to us reach it for you.
And as “Lexperienced guides” we have got stories on every stretch.. These guides also will make the time on board interesting.
Route proposal on the map for a 2 hour boat tour in Amsterdam
Starting your guided private boat tour in East Amsterdam is cool, modern en relaxed.
We propose to start the private boat guiding in Amsterdam-Oost. As you might have seen on this website East Amsterdam is one of our sightseeing specialties.
The new terrace at Kop van Oost is pretty cool.
We have been sitting there lately with a group of Internations expats for which I have organized a tour, a Lexperience, as well.
Review from Ernst and Young after their guided boat outing in Amsterdam
Thank you so much for the organization guides and tour route for us. I have received positive feedback about the boat tour. Some about the highlights, that the English level is good, nice stories and good sense of humor.
Especially thank you for being flexible and responsible. We are sure that your contribution added up to the people experience and they have learnt more interesting facts.

Yes, We’d love to discuss the sightseeing route & the private boat guiding in Amsterdam over a cup of tea with you or your colleague in your office, to talk the outing over.
I gladly offer that to you als an extra, in my case Lextra, service. ;)
We have strong links with two good boat companies (One with barges, the other with classic saloon boats) to talk about the kind of equipment we need and they have.
The men and women are part of our team and/or have their own guiding service as well and they are of a high level with a lot of “Lexperience” (in our case that is the appropriate word.).
We have an extended network in Amsterdam because of our pretty long history with tours for groups.
I know you expect that as a firm who plays on a good level itself in your own sector.

Boat tour special in Amsterdam: DJ Lextase on board | Lounge or party on the river
Do you like the idea of a mobile DJ during your private party or lounge boat tour in Amsterdam?
DJ Lextase can entertain your group on river IJ, river Amstel and Markermeer.
For a dinner & dance party. And possibly with lounge music as well.
DJ Lextase has been educated by DJ School Amsterdam and has gained his first DJ Lexperiences with corporate boat tours on the river Seine in Paris.
The 1st possible start of the private party boat trip is behind the central station of Amsterdam. The boat can go both directions: either direction West (direction IJmuiden) or to the East (Amsterdam Docklands, Oranjesluizen, Markermeer)
The second possibility for a party or lounge boat cruise is boarding opposite café Hesp, a place where we have been organizing a lot of (sporty) private group outings over the years. This is the river Amstel; heading for the South.
(Basically you have to leave town in order to be able to organize a party-boat tour for a group in Amsterdam.)
