The system allowed me to...
Lewis_J, May 2022
The system allowed me to book onto a booat trip which didnt exist, we turned up to the dock after our booking at the Ice Bar and the gentlemen said there were no more boats
It was nice experience but not worth the money
xsrsrp8r9z, May 2022
Boat ride was good and icebar experience was okayish but definitely not worth the price. Would rather just do the canal ride. If you like to drink then the ice bar might be worth.
Good for the money
steve_y, Sep 2021
Boat was interesting, ice bar is basic but 3 drinks you get with it is good, ps don’t wear shorts like us lol
Viator stole our money
Aidan_R, Mar 2020
We spent over a hundred dollars on this trip and were not allowed to even go on the canal tour. Viator stole our money and refused to issue us a refund. This is a scam. DO NOT BOOK THIS TRIP!

Ice bar experience
Paula_H, Feb 2020
Was good craic and something a bit different, didn't last very long but wasn't too expensive. Get the large ice glass as you get more free drink!
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Dear Tony, We are thrilled to read you had a lovely experience during your Icebar visit you have done with us. Hopefully we have made your holiday even more special!
Not too great
Rita3235, Dec 2019
The IceBar needed attention and was not well maintained. It was definitely for a younger group although we had gone to IceBars in other countries that were fabulous. The cruise was underwhelming and a disappointment although it did give us an overview of the City of Amsterdam.
Response from Host, Feb 2020

Please contact us at: Have a good day!
Not really what I was expecting...
Brittany_E, Nov 2019
So I thought that the people checking tickets at the front at Icebar would have some idea that people have purchased tickets for both the Icebar and another activity (in my case, the canal cruise). So I was very confused how to transition from the Icebar to the cruise. My ticket was for 9:20pm so there weren't any canal rides at that time, but the tickets were still valid for another day, fair enough (although, this was my last full night in Amsterdam so I ended up not making the cruise). When you enter the Icebar, you are given 1 gold token and 2 silver tokens. The 1st gold one is for the main bar area and you have limited drinks to choose from. Then you go into the actual Icebar (both spaces are pretty small) where you can use the 2 silver tokens on shots, again limited choices. I would still recommend just for the experience, just look up the canal cruise times.
Cold....but Fun!
KELLY_W, Nov 2019
What a fun date night activity. We loved drinking out of the ice glasses and taking pictures. The coats were a bit sticky and the gloves were too but we loved it!
