Absolutely brilliant value. Four of us went for the canal cruise in the afternoon, which was approx 1 hour long and very good. In the evening, we walked along to the Icebar and had a lovely cocktail in the lounge before entering the Icebar then had two drinks each in the Icebar, where we stayed for approx 30 minutes. and took photos. An alcoholic drink alone in Amsterdam costs approx £4/5 so for approx £22, you get a cruise, a visit to the Icebar and 3 drinks - well worth the money! Would definitely recommend this trip.
The canal cruise was relaxed and informative and was a lovely way to spend our time. The Icebar was fun and the three drinks included in the price is a nice touch.
The tickets were much cheaper than what it would cost to buy out there, if I remember correctly the cruise was about €13 and the icebar about €16 per person. Both experiences were good and I would recommend both to others. Tickets were easy to pick up and the places were easy to find.
Great! The cruise during the day is nice and informative, it was good to know some more information about the city and places to visit. Icebar was great, the sculptures in there are beautifully made and the staff where really friendly. Well worth a visit! Please note it is very expensive if you don't book in advanced!
We enjoyed the hour long boat trip along the canals. Very interesting and the captain checked what nationalities were aboard and played the relevant language to his audiences.
We found the Icebar later that afternoon having booked our time slot at the travel shop in Dam Square. It was easy to swap our Viator booking for tickets and they were helpful.
We got a taxi from the Hotel but walked back not being sure where it was. But not too far. We enjoyed the time in there although it does get very cold. It is busy but better when people leave the Icebar. You then have more room. They showed a 3d film but not many people watched. Had 2 drinks. Novelty. Photos are taken of you to buy. Take your photos before you go in as they request you not to take any.
Canal tour great way to see city but expect crowded seating. Ice Bar fun but no pics allowed so hurry and get fellow guests to snap pics while u wait in line in gear. Great value. Great service.
Really enjoyed the canal ride, relaxing and informational, the ice bar was good, cheap drinks before you get in and inside the bar it was a laugh, shame we didn't get longer inside, but I would recommend :)
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.
This was an excellent trip. The canal trip was very relaxing. It was very busy and we had to wait about 30 minutes to board, but it was worth it. The ice bar is a fun thing to do and the two together were good value.
