Loved it all! Relaxing, informative and great pizza and all the drinks you want. A true highlight of our tours in Amsterdam.
This excursion was so much fun. It was a great way to see the city from the canals while relaxing in your seat. The pizzas were hot and the ice cream was frozen. Unlimited wine, beer, soda and water was also available and readily refilled without asking. Highly recommend this excursion.
The family loved this event and we would recommend this to everyone as a great way to start a visit to Amsterdam. You exchange your voucher for tickets at the Holland International Canal Crusies office (blue and white building right by the bus drop off area-opposite Central Station). I would suggest getting there about 20 minutes early as there were a number of cruises going on and some of the folks had long detailed questions about tours that slowed down the line to get your tickets. After you board you will be taken to a table and given a form to pick out the type of pizza and ice cream you want. The cruise begins and the all you can drink beverages start to flow as you see the sights from the canal. About half way into the tour the boat makes a short stop to pick up the pizzas-each person gets one pizza that was just the right size and should fill you up. After pizza they bring around small containers of Ben and Jerry's ice cream to finish off the night. The two ladies who looked after the passengers had perfect timing all night long and showed up just as you were ready for a refill, needed food or your table cleaned. A very enjoyable and relaxing evening for all in our party.
It was exactly as described, pizza was fresh and drinks were plentiful. The cruise itself on the perfect night we had was beautiful.
All you could expect.
Lovely cruise of the canal. Commentary as we travelled. Several beers and wines had! Food was great. No problems with children. Overall value for money! New Zealand visitors!
We thoroughly enjoyed the canal cruise, it was good value for money and the staff and captain were very informative and friendly.
The pizza was a good size and the Ben and Jerry ice cream delicious and also the free drinks went down nicely.
This was my third trip to Amsterdam, the first as a true tourist. The atmosphere on the boat is very relaxed the crew made everyone feel very welcome. Crayons and colouring-in pictures where provided to those fellow passengers with young children and even offered to some of the adults!! Unfortunately my colouring-in is not what it used to be (I can't keep within the lines) so I enjoyed the included drinks. I must say were free flowing, provided without prompting by the attentive crew/waitresses. Don't expect a full guided tour, you won't get it, you will get some information about the key sights, which was enough for my wife and I. The drinks on offer consisted of soft drinks, wine; white, red or rose and Heineken lager. The pizza's are good as was the ice cream, the cocktail snacks on the table were a great touch. I would recommend arriving at the booking office at least 20 minutes ahead of time. We arrived 10 minutes before and missed our booked slot, which was no problem as we were put on the next departure. The booking office is opposite Amsterdam Centraal Station (on the left looking at the station) on the road not on the actual quay-side. You cannot go wrong for the money, seriously it's very good value and very enjoyable.
Canal tour was great, worth taking. The pizza..well your not there for pizza, the Heineken made up for it. It gives you a good understanding of the canal system, houseboats and the architecture of the city. Very good
Food was amazing, the crew were very helpful and as promised kept topping up the wine, overall a great experience I would suggest to anyone going to amsterdam to do a pizza cruise, we loved it
This was perfect to do with our ten year old! Do wish the appetizer would have been more substantial tho . But loved hearing about the city!
Great fun, probably more so becuse we did get a little tipsy on the all you can drink wine!!! Pizza was ok and a good choice. Went to quickly for us but enjoyed it all the same.
