Pros: 1) It's pick up location. We got on the boat at the port just outside the Rijksmuseum and I think it is the most convenient location to get on a boat. 2) $16 euro for an hour, wasn't bad at all. 3) We were...More

The dinner was delicious and the service was awesome. My husband and I were able to sit by ourselves and enjoy a nice dinner with amazing views from the water. I would definitely do this again!

I had only a short day in Amsterdam, and my plans contained the Rijksmuseum, and going out to Zandvoort - so I was looking for the "quick and easy" sightseeing tour, preferably in a covered boat, so I don't soak if it starts to rain....More

the boat had a glass roof which is good if the weather is bad, but on a clear day, the glass windows and roof make for lousy pictures. You can see a lot and that is important, but the enclosed boat is no good for...More

We got what we went for, nothing more. Pre registered explanations and tour was quickly done. There seems to be cheaper alternatives around.

There are so many options near the Central Station - we went to the Tourist Information Centre for advice on canal cruises. They promote the Gray Line ????? - so we paid 16 euros each. The "100 highlights was such a disappointment - where I...More

What a very friendly and beautiful City. People are so welcoming and there is so much history here. Highly recommended to do the City tour, day cruise on the canal and the night one - there are a few different ones. Enjoy Amsterdam 😊😊😊😊

A highlight of our stay. We did the tour only, food/drink not included which we found to be perfect. Tip...go just before sunset as you get the best of both worlds. The canals in the light and then the canals all lit up, especially the...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

We are interested in the one hour canal tour. Can you tell me where we will go and what we will see so I can plan to see other sights after your tour? We only have 2 days in Amsterdam and we want to make the most of our time. Looking forward to our little tour with you! Cynthia
