Great cruise. It was longer than I thought it'd be it was 2 hours so you had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the ride and the wine. Really covered the canals thoroughly.

Fantastic experience, all staff on board were lovely and made the evening extra special for me and my daughter. It was my birthday and they made us a cocktail and made me feel very special. The candlelight trip was lovely seeing Amsterdam at night which was gorgeous
