    The story and facts about Amsterdam as well as the experience of being on a boat on the canals in Amsterdam. It may have been nice to have seen a bit more of Amsterdam by boat but think you were limited due to gay pride.

    Me and my daughter decided to pick the time around sunset for the cruise and it was a great decision. The atmosphere was amazing and the lights on the bridges and houses were beautiful. The two guides were super friendly and funny and gave us a great experience. We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend it to everyone who loves a wonderful atmosphere and a fun time.

    It was raining and we had scheduled an open boat for the tour. The folks shifted us all to covered boats and we enjoyed a wonderful, well enjoyed hour plus session on the waterways. The captain, tour guides and shore staff all went above and beyond.

    There was a little bit of information shared, but the young men running seemed more interested in making jokes with one another.
