“Lovely trip though the canals”

Lovers Canal Cruises

Fee: Yes
Owner description: With Rederij Lovers, you can admire the canals of Amsterdam on a Canal Cruise. In a luxurious cruise boat, you are taken along beautiful imposing canal-side houses with clock, spout and neck gables, the Zevenbogenbruggengracht, the Magere Bridge over the Amstel, the VOC-ship and the docks. An unforgettable cruise!

We took the trip staring outside the American Hotel. This one tended to be fully every day we passed so we were lucky to get onboard on our first day. Ticket booth is right there so no need to buy elsewhere. The captain we had was very likable and we actully had a longer trip then the one hour. Lots of interesting facts and a good introduction. Price was reasonable but we had the trip included with our I Amsterdam pass

Dear John,

Thak you for your great review.
We are happy that you joined us for a 1-hour canal cruise.
Now we are entering the high season you can see the city is getting busier. Luckily our boats go very frequently and therefore it is easy to find a seat on board. It is great to hear that you found the captain very likeable, as we always strive to give the best service this is a great compliment. Enjoy your holiday and we hope to see you again.

Kind regards,
Lovers canal Cruises

First time in Amsterdam and we did a fabulous walking tour. I sure wish we went with our first thought and went with another boat tour. Out of my entire time, this was the only disappointing activity.
Standing in the long line and then only finding nearly the last 2 seats on the boat. I was so irritated that I didn't bother to use the earphones for the narration. Also noticed a lot of dozing folks on the boat. Uneventful and not a good value for 35 Euros (for 2 people).

Dear Tee820,

We are very sorry to hear that you were not able to fully enjoy the canal cruise. Amsterdam is beautiful from the water and it shows you a whole different side of the city. Now we are entering the high season the boats can get more busy, as we have boats running very frequently and operating from 09.00 till 22.00 you can always find a time where it is less busy. Again we are sorry that you choose not to use the GPS system as it gives you a lot of interesting details about the city and it's history and is a great addition to the tour.We hope we can welcome you another time for a better experience.

With kind regards,
Lovers Canal Cruises

First time in Amsterdam as a tourist. We thought a 1-hour canal cruise was a must. Went with the Lovers cruise. The “captain” was amusing and the audio guide was informative and not too intrusive. This cruise helped to make more sense of the buildings and development of the city. Well worth doing and not too expensive (I actually used my KLM Flying Blue miles so it cost nothing!).
