The tickets were much cheaper than what it would cost to buy out there, if I remember correctly the cruise was about €13 and the icebar about €16 per person. Both experiences were good and I would recommend both to others. Tickets were easy to pick up and the places were easy to find.

Great! The cruise during the day is nice and informative, it was good to know some more information about the city and places to visit. Icebar was great, the sculptures in there are beautifully made and the staff where really friendly. Well worth a visit! Please note it is very expensive if you don't book in advanced!

We enjoyed the hour long boat trip along the canals. Very interesting and the captain checked what nationalities were aboard and played the relevant language to his audiences.
We found the Icebar later that afternoon having booked our time slot at the travel shop in Dam Square. It was easy to swap our Viator booking for tickets and they were helpful.
We got a taxi from the Hotel but walked back not being sure where it was. But not too far. We enjoyed the time in there although it does get very cold. It is busy but better when people leave the Icebar. You then have more room. They showed a 3d film but not many people watched. Had 2 drinks. Novelty. Photos are taken of you to buy. Take your photos before you go in as they request you not to take any.

Canal tour great way to see city but expect crowded seating. Ice Bar fun but no pics allowed so hurry and get fellow guests to snap pics while u wait in line in gear. Great value. Great service.

Really enjoyed the canal ride, relaxing and informational, the ice bar was good, cheap drinks before you get in and inside the bar it was a laugh, shame we didn't get longer inside, but I would recommend :)

The canal cruise was very nice once we located the actual dock the boat was waiting at. It was a nice view of areas we had not previously seen. Make sure to ask questions if you cannot find the dock!

The boat trip was good very informative about Amsterdam and enjoyable! The ice bar was different an experience worth trying but not as good as I expected we had shots instead of drinks which is ok if you like shots instead of Smirnoff ice the bar was small and we could not get 2 4d film staff were great

I really enjoyed the canal tour - I wasn't expecting to learn so much! Unfortunately the captain was running 15 minutes late so we started a little disappointed - but my mind was changed as we soared along the water :) The ice bar was lovely too - and on the walk over we found the market. Wrap up warm!

I think that the title of this tour is slightly misleading. I was under the impression that the canal cruise would end at/ take you to the icebar. Instead we found that these are two seperate excursions/ activities.
The tourist company you exchange your voucher with were very helpful and we were able to seperate the two over two days as it was quite late in the day when we arrived.
The canal cruise was a really great way to see the city; really informative and relaxing.
We got to the icebar for an enterance around midnight. We sampled a lot of the drinks whilst waiting! Lovely cocktails and some good deals (2 cocktails for 15euros). I really enjoyed the actual icebar room but not all of my group did. Make sure you wear suitable shoes!!! You cannot take photos inside the room but your photo is taken by an 'eskimo' and you can purchase them on exiting the room. You get 2 shots of your choice and the only 'soft drink' on offer was diluted juice.
Although some of the descriptions of the tour are misleading. My group did enjoy the activities and I would reccommend it to others visiting the city.
