Rederij Lampedusa – Canal Tour | Amsterdam
About Rederij Lampedusa – Canal Tour | Amsterdam
In 2015 we pulled two former migrant boats from the Mediterranean to Amsterdam. To start the most inclusive, the most colourful and probably the most sympathetic canal cruise company of the city. You may decide whether we have succeeded in this. We - a crew with roots in Syria, Somalia, Eritrea, Egypt and the Netherlands - would love to sail and guide you through our beautiful Amsterdam.

I hear this boat tour was amazing and I got it as a birthday present Today we did the boat tour and it was a great an inspiring experience. As a migration scholar myself and as a human being of this world, I think this kind of experiences enrich a lot our lives by seeing and hearing touching and inspiring histories. Thank you Yousef to share your story with us. And thank you to the ones that started this amazing project i wish you the best. Highly recommended experience.
We had the most amazing time on our canal tour with Rederij Lampedusa. Our captain Yousef provided a unique tour through the canals explaining Amsterdam’s migration history and his openness to share his story with us reached our hearts. Such an inspiring individual and an experience we will always remember fondly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Great tour, very interesting and different story of the city.nnGreetings from Groningen
Insightful and powerful. You glide through the canals in an electrically powered boat that was salvaged from Lampedusa Italy, to which it carried 74 refugees from Africa (the safe allowance for the boat in Amsterdam is about thirteen I believe). Your storyteller, who is a refugee, intertwines their own story with the story of the boat, and the refugees throughout history who helped build Amsterdam and make it what it is today. If you have to pick between the regular canal tour and this one, go with this one for a truly unique experience. Or even better, do both so that you can experience the contrast between the two.
The other boat tour. How Amsterdam was built by immigrant in the 17th century until now is also interesting for locals.
Excellent boat tour, and was great to hear their stories while travelling, highly recommend
Excellent trip - thanks! Yusuf and Tommy gave a great tour of the canals with important historical context added. Fully recommended
Wonderful boat trip with an excellent captain and eye opening stories of migration, politics and activism
Geweldige ervaring gehad!nWe had an amazing time on the lovely boat. It was very relaxing but also very interesting. Would recommend it to everyone
Een unieke rondvaart met een charmante spreker en gediplomeerde kapitein
Moe and Sami gave us a very interesting tour through the Grachten of Amsterdam. Moe told us a lot about his journey from Syria to the Netherlands, shared his very personal experiences with us with a big portion of humor although it is quite a severe topic. We can definitely recommend a tour with Rederij Lampedusa!
Moe en Sami gaven ons een zeer interessante rondleiding door de Grachten van Amsterdam. Moe vertelde ons veel over zijn reis van Syriu00eb naar Nederland, deelde zijn zeer persoonlijke ervaringen met ons met een grote portie humor, hoewel het een behoorlijk ernstig onderwerp is. We kunnen zeker een tour aanbevelen met Rederij Lampedusa!
De ervaring was ongelooflijk boeiend. We leerden een geweldig verhaal kennen, terwijl we leerden over conflicten. Mijn klas en ik hebben er echt van genotenud83dude0a

Ik was met Lampedusa op een prachtige tour door Amsterdam. Inzicht, bewegend, informatief en gewoon heel plezierig. Onze gids was een fantastische verhalenverteller en had zo vriendelijk zijn persoonlijke verhaal over rebellie, schrijver, student en vluchteling te delen. We hebben ook veel geleerd over Amsterdam en hoe belangrijk immigratie is geweest voor zijn ontwikkeling.nnIk zou dit altijd opnieuw doen en het iedereen aanbevelen!
