This was the highlight of our time in Amsterdam. The cruise and dinner was something we will never forget. The food and service was excellent plus. Would recommend this to all travelers.
The best way to see the beauty of Amsterdam--nothing is even close.
It was a very good evening indeed, once we got on board. The admin at the quay was bizarre and confusing, however.
The boat was very pleasant and airy, the crew delightful and very attentive. The food was excellent and the freshly cooked main course most impressive. generous amounts of wine and fizz helped, too!
The dinner cruise was a fabulous experience. Seeing Amsterdam from the canals at night is the best way to experience this beautiful city. The lights, the canal-side houses, the different kinds of canals, the other canal craft, and the old and modern architecture are best seen in this two-and-a-half-hour blur of enjoyment. The food is very good. The crew and servers are friendly and funny and very helpful about identifying landmarks. The wine flows and flows. We invited a solo traveller from Tasmania to join us, and we all had a great evening together. We had a wonderful five days in Amsterdam, and this dinner cruise was the highlight. Book it now before it fills up.

Great food great cruise what more could you want. The boat was well organised and the staff extremely attentive. The boat is extremely easy to find located almost opposite the main railway station
We took this trip on our first night in Amsterdam in order to see the city from a different perspective and to orient ourselves. We could not have been more pleased with our decision. The food, wine and company were excellent. The staff were knowledgeable and professional as well as the boat pilot. Highly recommend this for any person, couple or group of people visiting Amsterdam.
Food was quite good considering the overall situation; staff was friendly and attentive; tour provided much to look at
My friend and I really enjoyed this canal cruise. It was a lovely sunny evening and we loved being steered around the different canals, looking at the buildings as all the lights came on and eating a delicious 4-course meal with plenty of wine. If you are visiting Amsterdam for the first time, you might want to consider having another cruise, perhaps during the day, in which you get a commentary so that you can learn about the city. A commentary wouldn't have been appropriate here as everybody was just chatting and enjoying the ambience. It's ideal for couples or for friends catching up. It really made our long weekend in Amsterdam special.
Great experience. The food and service was very good. A great way to see Amsterdam.
After booking two trips this was offered to us... A special offer we couldn't refuse. It was highly recommended and rightly so. Service was superb. Waiters friendly, attentive, fun and good company. We were treated like royalty. The food was excellent. Drink flowed freely throughout the evening. Had not expected limitless wine. Did we enjoy ourselves?.... Do cows eat grass? We certainly did! Cruising round the canals as well. What more can anyone wish for in Amsterdam? We shall be back in Amsterdam soon and this will be the first trip we book. Don't think about this trip, just get on and book it. No way will you be disappointed. Thank you to everyone involved in making this evening so memorable.
We booked this tour about a week prior to our departure and I am so glad we did! The meal was delicious - if you book a dinner cruise I recommend you be sure and read the voucher - we were supposed to submit our main meal choice 24 hrs prior - since we did not submit a choice we were assigned the beef dish. It was excellent. The traditional dutch apple pie for dessert was worth every calorie. We took a daytime cruise the previous morning - I recommend seeing AMS via canal boat during the day AND evening - absolutely beautiful!
The cooking was excellent - much better than expected, and the cruise was perfect for celebrating our wedding anniversary. Unlike some other canal cruises, there was no recorded commentary or hard sell. If anything it could have used a bit more information. The crew dealt swiftly and calmly when a passenger passed out. The police and paramedics came on board and helped the passenger off. (Apparently he had consumed a hash brownie, which can lower the blood pressured when digested, some time after consumption,)
Excellent trip, great value for money, the food was a real surprise, having been on trips similar sometimes the food is a let down, however not on this trip real 5 start quality food, the staff were superb, friendly, professional, quick to respond to requests and knowledgeable when asked questions. The trip was just the right duration, Amsterdam by night is beautiful and I would recommend the trip and the the company I booked through Viator, It was a great start to a wonderful weekend
