Fun excursion

This was an interesting excursion through the canals. Learned a lot about Amsterdam. Our hostess Charlie made sure we were comfortable while Christopher gave us information about the city.
I loved the history that...

I loved the history that was being thought to us. I loved how friendly the tour guides were and how educated they were of the place.
It was "fine"

So, let me start with the best part and then backfill... Marija, our guide, was funny, sweet, smart and personable. She was the highlight of this tour so if you can get on with her, do it. With that being said, I booked this tour based on the photo provided in the ad. When we arrived in Amsterdam I received a phone call asking if we could reschedule our tour. No problem. We arrived at the new time they offered and was told the boat we were supposed to get on was an open boat (not even the open boat pictured and not something even kind of considered "luxury") and that if we wanted to get on this enclosed "luxury" boat it was going to cost us more money. I wasn't going to pay for an upgrade; I just wanted them to honor what we booked. It felt very much like a bait and switch. The gentleman I was speaking to told me he would speak to his manager about getting me a refund but if I wanted, I could wait on the boat. They ended up not refunding, instead honoring our original booking but it was kind of a hassle to get it done and frustrating since I was doing them a solid by rearranging my day to accommodate their request. The tour itself was fine, it's a canal tour so it is what it is. I would caution you to be extremely clear about your expectations and what you're booking before you click submit on this.

It was an amazing experience!!! Beautiful scenery everywhere from beginning to end. Our two hosts were fantastic! They were extremely informative and took us on a great journey. Don't think twice, just book it!!! I recommend around 1730 when it gradually gets dark and everything is wonderfully lit. You'll get to experience a little bit of both (Day & Night)

This Canal ride was very nice and enjoyable. Interesting stories about the Dutch and very hospitable assistant. This is an outside boat with no ability to be covered. Luckily it was a beautiful day and great to be outside.
