My husband had to delay his departure day at the last minute, so I went ahead and kept our tour and cruise bookings anyway. I'm so glad that I did - I met interesting fellow tourists and got a great lay of the land on my first day in town. By the time my husband arrived, I was able to show him around like I had lived there! The land area and history covered by this tour are vast but our guide kept it very interesting. I'd definitely recommend this to any Amsterdam first-timers.

This tour was great. The guide had aweome knowledge was higly skilled at what he did. Definately the best way to get an understanding of the city.
The only down side was that the cruise was too packed - but you can choose when you want to use it so I would recommend you wait for a less busy time of day.
