Excellent tour, headphones and commentary and then the museum afterwards
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!

Very good cruise around Amsterdam. Skipping the line at the museum was a good time saver.
The best way to see the city is by canal boat. The museum audio tour was fantastic.
We loved the HOHO canal boats. With the Skip the Line tickets, we had no wait getting into any museums. Highly recommend.
The Skip the Line Rijksmuseum was absolutely wonderful - well worth the cost and is one of the best things in Amsterdam.
The cruise was o.k.- couldn't hear the talk for more than 50 of the time and when we did hear it, it was cutesy conversation between the captain and his wife- obviously pre-recorded, but still dumb.
This trip offered both options we really wanted to do. The museum was exceptional, but for us on a Saturday, too crowded. To be expected. The cruise was great too, only complaint was we had to wait in line twice, first to get the voucher and again to board the boat. Fortunately, after I asked, the boat staff let us skip the 2nd line for an official voucher when it took more than 10 min to board the boat and it had room and was leaving. That was a welcome time saver. Nice overview of both locations.
A very enjoyable and informative canal tour. The Rijksmuseum is amazing to say the least!!!! Our group did the museum first then the canal tour, which worked well after all the walking. I took someone's advice and started on the second floor of the Rijksmuseum - great decision!
Beautiful views of Amsterdam on comfortable boat, Rijksmuseum is fantastic, need to go back as there is so much to see.
The canal tour is a great way to get an overview of the city. The guide was informative and the recorded narrartion vey helpful.
Worth the price just to avoid the lines at the Rijksmuseum. The ticket was not for a specifc time, making it convenient to go at our leisure and enter immediately.
Great tour, getting to experience the beauty of Amsterdam on the Canal Cruise and then skipping the line at Rijksmuseum, one of the best collections of art in the world, was outstanding!

It was Hotel close...it was Fun and Informative. The Rijksmuseum was Fantastic!!!
Great canal tour ending at the museum....could have spent the whole day at museum
This is a great tour! You can do the tours in any order you want, the canal cruise is lovely and takes you by all of the important and beautiful sites along the water to plan your visit by deciding you want to go back to tour. And the Skip The Line at the Rijksmuseum is a wonderful advantage ... you can avoid the long line, see the majestic art and not have to waste your valuable vacation moments standing waiting!
Must spend time at the Rijksmusem and skip the line tickets are worth it. We spent over 4 hours there and only got through one floor. The audio is worth the cost. The best canal tour we took. Blue company is great. The one recommendation we would have is better directions with a map on how to find the ticket office.

The canal cruise was very informative and gives a different perspective of the buildings. One canal cruise is enough, however. We did an evening also and there were no lights. You don't need the ticket for the Rijksmuseum. You can just get one at the museum when you wish to go. However, allow a day or at least 3 hours for the museum. A lot of walking, the the master's floor on 2 should be your first stop.
Good combination of two of the must do's for Amsterdam. Very flexible -- we visited the Blue Boat office on the afternoon of our arrival to see i we could pick up tickets to use the following day. No problem -- we could have chosen a canal cruise time then or returned the following day to choose a time that worked best ... and the Rijksmuseum tickets were good for any one day until April 2018! And the Rijksmuseum tickets are good for the whole day with in/out if you wish.
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Diana was good. She had good knowledge of Netherlands. The tour duration was perfect. I would highly recommend this toùr to anyone who has only few days stay in Amsterdam.
