WOW! What a pleasant way to see a bit of Amsterdam. Actually, we saw a great deal more than I expected. The pre recorded commentary was excellent and followed perfectly what we were seeing. Well timed ride with the commentary. It was super easy to locate in front of the massive train station.. one of those hard to miss situations. I am well pleased with this choice. Worth the money.

Not what it seems. Fast track it is not. You need to get a ticket - supposedly fast tracked - and then have the privilege of waiting, in our case, in the longest queue of any boat company. Don't pre-purchase. Just go down and find the shortest queue with any of the canal companies. The cruises are all the same. Deeply disappointing!!!

We sat outside at the rear of the boat for better pictures. The captain continued to provide additional comments beyond the recorded guided tour that we were not able to hear where we were outside. A beautiful city and lovely in the evenings.

The primary reason that I purchased this ticket on viator is because the description says Fast-Track Ticket. When I arrived at the specified ticket pick-up location, the attendant informed me there is no such fast track ticket. She told me all of their tickets are the same. Luckily we didn't have to wait in line long on this specific day. I would not recommend purchasing this specific ticket through Viator. You can purchase from an agency close to Central Station and save yourself the walk to find the pick up location. Also, the cruise was a little boring in my opinion. It's a pre recorded audio tour that you listen to with headphones as captain drives the boat around. If you have any additional questions, there is no one to ask. Also, there were times that the audio was not on pace with where we were located. You could see everyone in the boat the turning their heads to try to figure out what the audio was speaking about. I would recommend a smaller more personal/interactive tour, if I had to do it again.
