Is not 100 highlights more like several facts transmitted via headphones. It was a terrible tour.
Such a money making tourist trap. We were one of about 5 boats behind one another, it just wasn’t worth the money.
Wish we hadn’t bothered.

Thanks for you review. We're sorry to hear your experience on the 100 Highlights cruise wasn't a positive one. This cruise is an introduction to the city. The audio guide tells you about Amsterdam's history, culture and architecture. For a more personal experience I would recommend taking an Open Boat Tour next time, where your captain is also your guide.

We took the 100 Highlights Cruise tour. You basically get a recording about the highlights of Amsterdam during one hour. Other than that, for 18 euros, they don't offer more than the 11 or 15 euros tours you can find in the city.
The ticket seller ensured us that we could take the baby stroller on board as long as it could be folded. Once we bought the tickets, the pilot (I would not call him a captain...) got really unfriendly when he saw us coming and asked us to leave the stroller on the quay for one hour!!!
We eventually managed to get on the boat with the stroller as he could not lose time arguing with us...
We did not really enjoy the cruise afterwards...

Thank you for writing a review. I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Good to hear that you were able to take the stroller om the boat. Most of the time this is possible but ultimately the decision of the captain, since he can see if the boat is not too full. We apologize for the fact that this was not properly communicated to you. We hope you enjoyed Amsterdam nonetheless.

We cruised the canals and got a tour of the entire city. I loved it! It gave us an idea of which way we wanted to go to see the things that were important to us. Plus we learned some interesting facts! I’d say, definitely do it!

Very good service and beautiful view. The wine and cheeses were great as well, and we got to eat and drink as much as we wanted.
