We were able to board the canal tour directly across the road from our hotel and the stop for the bus only 3 mins walk away.We found the commentary very informative and the skipper on the canal boat was hilarious as well as knowledgeable.It was very easy to pick up our tickets at 26 Damrak and the young lady was very helpful and supplied us with lots of brochures etc.I wou7ld recommend this tour to anyone coming to Amsterdam even if they have been before.
The E tickets were easily exchanged by a very helpful man in the 20 Damrak office. He rightly advised us to book an evening slot at the Ice Bar, so as to have more of an atmosphere, which it did, we had a great fun experience, somewhere different to visit and excellent value for money with the 3 drinks included.
The weather was lovely and sunny for our canal cruise, so we wanted to sit outside, as the roof on the boat we were on didn't open. The down side, as we found out was, for some reason there wasn't an outside speaker, so we missed most of the commentary. But, it was good to see Amsterdam from another angle. I would imagine an evening cruise would be a good experience on another visit, as most of the bridges are lit up. All in all a fun day, well worth the money, a great experience we really enjoyed, and we would defiantly recommend this package to friends and family.
The tours were good although getting the tickets in Amsterdam were tricky as we didn't realise there was only one office where you could do that. Eventually directed to the right one after lots of misdirection. Loads of tours and tickets offices but only one on damrak does it so read your paperwork
