Our canals tour was magnificent. It was raining that day so it was good to get out of the rain while we saw all of the sites. IThe only negative we had was that it was hard to hear the tour guide over the microphone system. Otherwise, it was an excellent time!
Took the night cruise and it was wonderful to see the beautiful old apartments lit up and city lights. Boat ride is easy and pleasant
Very good tour. We took the tour a bit late which provided us the opportunity to start during daylight and see some night lighting before completing the tour
We just arrived in Amsterdam and were pretty tired. The cruise hit the spot. Finding the ship was not easy. We could have taken a cruise from right in front of our hotel.
Very pleasant and enjoyable evening cruise which was a nice introduction to some of the sights of Amsterdam.
Good tour, very hard to hear because of a quite excited Japanese group who talked loudly any time the guide was speaking in a language other than Japanese, but that was okay. They were having fun. The route was well-chosen and had some truly beautiful angles on the city, and what I could hear of the guide sounded interesting.
Great trip round the canals. Good to see parts of Amsterdam from there. Only bad thing was that the only seats available to us on our trip were at the very back and you did not get any commentary from that area so if you want to hear information about the buildings, then make sure you grab a seat inside.
Still the best way to get a handle on the city at the start of your break. Would be five star, but not disabled friendly if you have a problem embarking and disembarking - the crew just stood and watched...
Lovely tour of the back canals with history of the architecture and areas. Good way to get a overview of the canals. Audio not always easy to understand because of the openness of the boat.
Extremely enjoyable, although the commentary was too late at times because we had gone past things that were being pointed out so we didn't know which building she was talking about.
Even though it was rainy and the boat windows fogging up, this tour was good. Some aspects of Amsterdam are best seen from the water.
very nice cruise and view. although when you are by yourself people try to put you in any seat. This happens in almost every tour though. At least i got window.
A fantastic way to see the city. We visited on June and there where no lines, so you can buy tickets on the docks.
The boat tour covers all the major attractions with commentary. It is recommended to do it to get an idea of the place. Afterwards, it is advisable to walk the alleys of Amsterdam and I am sure you will bump into something that is of interest to you.
Great way to get the lay of the land, took this tour right away. After taking the tour it really helped us navigate the city.
This was an excellent tour of a fascinating cultural oddity. The commentary on the tour was broadcast in several languages though the driver herself could not answer any questions. Indeed, she was rather rude about being asked any. She did know where to stop the boat so we could get a photo shot of 7arched bridges at once.
Better than the evening cruise. A good way to see parts of Amsterdam you will not see on the bust tour.
An excellent general view of the city from the canals, much more than could be seen on foot. The system for queueing for tickets and prepaid places should be improved though, in order to minimise unnecessary waiting times. Worth the money overall.
I loved the canal tour we pre booked our tickets so we jumped straight on the boat the only down fall was I assumed I would be able to buy a drink on board or at ticket office it was sunny and hot on the canal cruise and they could make little extra if drinks were provided loved all the scenery :)
Canal cruise is a must when visiting Amsterdam. It was great experience.
You get to see many dutch things near Amsterdam in just a few hours. Everything was smooth the guide and driver were nice and knowledgable. Keep in mind that it is only 5 hour tour so you wont have much time to spend on each place. Good option for those who do not want to spend a day travel by themselves to small cities.
It was very nice and a good way to start our 1.5 day visit in Amsterdam. Gives you a good overall perspective about the city. Will recommend it if you do not have a lot of time to see the city.Very relaxing and informative.
