    Very entertaining and charming. Funny and interactive conversations with the guide (she could be a comedian) instead of a monologue. I love it.
    Canal Trip
    Brenda, Aug 2022
    This was a very interesting and informative cruise. the guides were knowledgeable of the area and made the trip funny, especially since the Pride parades were happening, as well. The appetizers should have had some type of cracker (just a suggestion) to go along with the cheese. Overall, it was a pleasant trip

    First class tour guide
    Debra_P, Sep 2022
    We did the canal tour with Adriana. She was a great host for the one hour journey. I had done a canal tour the last time I was in Amsterdam. Adriana’s tour was more informative and delivered in a more humorous manner than my previous tour. If you want a memorable tour, ask for Adriana.
    Good times,
    arlene_e, Aug 2022
    I thoroughly enjoyed this activity, it was relaxing, informative and just about perfect…. Could be a bit longer, even if they charges more it would still be worth it. Sipper and bartender/tour guide were friendly and engaging. Great end to an evening
    Amazing experience!

    Ally and Isabelle were great, even handling a rather difficult crowd of passengers. The evening tour is lovely and I would highly recommend.
    A Blast & Quick Trip to Learn a Little About Amsterdam!
    Sam_G, Sep 2022
    My dad & I went to this and had a blast. Sofia & Sven were fantastic hosts and Sofia is hilarious. We learned a lot in this short time and I only wish it was a little longer! There is so much to see and hear about - would recommend it! A fun way to get introduced to the city of Amsterdam!
    Must do in Amsterdam!
    Sheri_T, Sep 2022

    Sophie is an excellant tour guide. She added humor to her interesting dialogue of knowledgeable facts. She was delightful! She managed the group well in terms of people focusing on the tour without distracting others with side conversations.
    Canal Cruise Amsterdam

    Our boat captain shared interesting stories about Amsterdam. He pointed out many buildings along the canals. The wine and cheese were a great plus!

    Suzy_G, Aug 2022
    The tour guide was excellent and views were perfect. I would say you can cut the cheese portion in half.
    Just OK, don’t expect more than the basics
    Alison_W, Aug 2022
    We booked a specific departure in advance because we had dinner reservations after the cruise. Unfortunately, something happened and the operator needed to move our reservation, and we were put on a boat with others who were walk up. The cruise is just OK. Bar on board means you get cheap booze (that you pay for) and limited selections. This is by no means a premium experience. In hindsight, i wish I’d spent a few more dollars for a more upscale experience
    A nice little evening cruise in Amsterdam
    David_G, Oct 2022
    A nice evening cruise along the canals in Amsterdam. The crew was very friendly, sharing some history and stories about Amsterdam while we all enjoyed the scenery. Very pretty at night while the buildings are illuminated. Fun evening!
    A disappointing ride
    Zoe_O, Oct 2022
    I signed up for tickets with a photo depicted of an open air boat. Pretty boat. With a bar. Was never asked if I wanted to participate in that bar. It suggested to me that the bar was included. So instead after filling up out 5:00 boat, we had to wait until 5:30 and Inhad to upgrade my tickets. Very misrepresented. Also this boat was not pretty and it was covered. I had to hang my phone out to get the canal photos.
    Unforgettably beautiful
    Alice_R, Oct 2022
    Such a special way to experience Amsterdam on dusk, great wine and commentary was entertaining. Not too much talking so was enjoyable, relaxing and loved the cheese platter -recommend upgrading your ticket to include beverages and cheese plate.
    Cruise the Amsterdam Canals and have fun
    Jerome_K, Sep 2022
    This was a fun canal cruise with Ava as our hostess and on board history expert, and Gys as our captain. The cruise also included drinks and snacks which were very good. Ava pointed out interesting facts along the route as Gys navigated the canals. I would book this again, we definitely got our monies worth and had a great tour of the canals.

    Anthony_C, Sep 2022
    Took the evening cruise in our last night. And after the busy ness of your visit it was so nice and relaxing to be on a canal cruise at night
