    Disappointing experience
    PatrickCall, Nov 2022
    Disappointed as it was more of a booze cruise than sightseeing cruise. Not what was advertised and would not recommend it.
    Avoid the Cheese
    Elizabeth_H, Nov 2022
    Lovely staff on board boat. Disorganised boarding processes. We didn’t go with the cheese and wine option, and we were glad we didn’t!!! Just looked like blocks of cheddar on a plate. Was offered drinks, we assumed must have been included by the way we were presented with them, only to be stung with the cost at the end. All our booking info stated we were to leave from the Anne Frank House, and this wasn’t the case. We did the cruise in winter and feel summer would be optimal, as the coverings and windows are cloudy and hard to see out of. Probably would not recommend a canal cruise to others. Better off walking around the canal and choosing cheese you actually want.
    Romantic little cruise.

    The bridges of Amsterdam looked so pretty all lit up at night. The hosts were great and it was lovely to have a glass of wine and relax.

    Poorly organized
    Tomasz_H, Nov 2022
    This is our experience exactly as it happened, hopefully someone finds this helpful. Group of 5. - Rushed to arrive at pick up spot (in front of Anne Frank House, as indicated in pick up details). - Got there at 20:26 (20:30 departure). - Waited, along with probably 8 other people, until around 20:37 when a member of staff came up and said pick up spot is actually on the other of the building and we have missed our boat. - we are directed to the proper pick up spot (not indicated anywhere on the ticket) and told to catch the next boat. - we get on that boat and about 10 minutes later we ate all told to get off because its full. At this time staff keeps pushing that we were all late and its our fault (which we were not) Somehow we are expected to assume that “in front of Anne Frank house, Prinsengracht 267 actually means Keizersgracht. - we are taken to the office and are given a refund. - great waste of about 1h of time in the rain. Definitely a great time lol
    Guides were good and...
    Neville_D, Nov 2022
    Guides were good and informative. There was a mix of people with some just doing a trip and others with cheese/wine option. They are very generous with the cheese and wine (we didnt take that). I missed a bit of the commentary at times cause the person serving was talking to the guests. Staff are very friendly though.
    Not good
    Yota_T, Nov 2022
    Toilet was out of order. It's not good saying "with bar on board" because it took almost a hour and so cold outside, Toilet must be necessary...
    Great trip
    Brian_G, Nov 2022
    Small but charming boat very friendly and experienced tour guide would definitely recommend well worth the money
    Diane_B, Nov 2022
    I was so excited about this evening cruise since it was my first trip to Amsterdam. Unfortunately, this was a poor choice. The windows of the boat were so dirty that the pictures that I took didn’t come out. The young ladies that were the guides were very sweet but spent more time on corny jokes and pushing alcohol sales then anything else. We did ride by many interesting sites but I have nothing to show for it other than a nice boat ride.

    Flagship Amsterdam Evening Cruise
    Elisha_H, Oct 2022
    Very good cruise, but quick to talk down of other members on different boat who were 10/15 minutes delayed to win a prize for the month.
    Definitely Go!
    Mary_M, Oct 2022
    There was space on an earlier ride, so we were able to enjoy the sunset during this cruise. It was absolutely gorgeous. I got great pics and had a drink from the onboard bar. It took us south of downtown where I hadn’t been and it was a treat. It was our last hurrah before leaving Amsterdam the next morning and it was worth every penny.
    Break away with the girls
    Eleanor_F, Oct 2022
    Arranged to go with my friends. Thought it would be more magical at night. I was expecting a separate bar. This was not the case- we joined a group - that was cheese and wine etc. Was very group oriented- which i felt was a bit much. But staff where brilliant- special shout out too phillipa and morgen. History part was amazing and very knowable. These two staff members- where really good and went the extra mile.
    Excellent way to spend an evening in Amsterdam!
    RachaelAnne_H, Oct 2022
    Very informative, entertaining and friendly! The crew went above and beyond to show us the sights and tell us the history of the buildings, canals and bridges. It was fun, the cheese and wine was lovely and we had a great time!
    Definitely worth the money!
    JenniferHawley, Oct 2022
    We had host Tamara and she was brilliant, I can't remember the sailor's name but he had white hair and was also great. Great value for money, super informative and tasty snacks and wine.
    Brian_O, Oct 2022
    I received an alert saying aviator wanted to reschedule my cruise because of bad weather. I never heard anything else. I didn’t go to the boat because I assumed the cruise was cancelled. Why use ambiguous language? My hope is that I can use my ticket for a future ride. Is that possible?
    Sum up
    joanne_p, Oct 2022
    A pleasant experience. Crew friendly. A little too cramped. Maybe few more candles. We were the only ones to leave a tip, which I thought was mean. Good trip thanks

    Poor logistics, training and communication
    Maura_M, Oct 2022
    The actual canal tour was great. The logistics were not. We got a text about 2 hours before the 8 pm departure saying the tour had been changed to 8:15-9:15 pm. We decided to still go early, thank goodness. The boat did depart at 8 pm, not 8:15 pm. We got to the address and were told we were at the wrong spot and to go to the other side of the canal for the evening tour. We went there and they told us this was misinformation and to go back to the original place we went. We got the last 2 seats ( not on a bench) since the boat was full. I had booked this 6 weeks prior to the event. To get the last and worst seats with this planning is not acceptable. Many folks were walk-ons. The logistics and training of staff need to be improved. The tour guide on the boat and his assistant were good. Would book with another line since there are many to choose from.
    Not Great
    Emma_T, Oct 2022
    Boat had no lights on and not alot of space between everyone .It was hard to hear the tour guide as no microphone.
    Rach_C, Oct 2022
    Nice evening with very gentle and funny staff! Beautiful view all the way through the canals. I recommend to all :)
    Creating live long memories-adored this awesome trip
    Kerry_T, Oct 2022
    The well stocked comfy boat was fabulous. Our hosts Roger and Fiona were amazing. Our fav boat trip, filled with beautiful twinkling night time canal views and amazing anecdotes and history. We loved it
