We did the canal cruise upon arriving on an overnight flight exhausted and confused, the canal cruise was perfect for overview a nice relaxing moment. It gave us a really good orientation with how to proceed with our vacation. Skip the line tickets for Rijks was a MUST. We saved so much time!! Highly recommend this or any with additional skip the line tickets!

A great way to see the city, however I was not over impressed with the Canal Cruise pre-recorded commentary, I thought it a bit corny - but no problem, each to their own

Very easy check in experience and pretty comfortable boat. The tour is automated, although the boat captain added a factoid or two that were interesting. The recorded tour is informative, but the little audio play they act out on the tour is pretty silly.

It's a good amount of time, and the skip the line Rijksmuseum tickets are great. We had a rainy day, so the boat was only about half full it's covered with an open space out back if you want to go outside.

I recommend taking any snacks and water you might need with you. It's not a long time, but it was helpful to have a little snack and some water.

Very well done tour of the city by boat. Then nice jump to front of the line at the Rijksmuseum, which is a must see. Everyone should start their visit to Amsterdam with a canal boat ride.

Can't wait to cruise Amsterdam's canals again. The museum building itself is a treasure, the treasures inside are eye-boggling!
