5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

We didn't have time to enjoy this experience but passed it on to another family. So much to see and so little time!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

A very effective way of visiting widely different parts of the city and at the same time seeing canal-side life. Useful information from the (presumably) recorded narrative about what you're passing although it sometimes got out of synch with the locations.
The best guide was from a young female pilot who gave an amusing alternative narrative and some excellent insights from the point of view of an Amsterdame. Have recommended it and will use it again.
