A relaxing canal boat ride after a busy sight seeing day with pizza, ice cream and copious amounts of vino supplied!! Pizza and wine were good but there was limited information on sites along the canal. Reasonable value for money.

16€ for a one hour. A tape is played and everything is repeated in 3 languages, no audio guides. Only one or two sentences for every historical building/site. Most of the time there's nothing being told and you just stare out the window, wanting to know more about all the beautiful buildings you are seeing. Don't take it of you... More

There's no better way to explore the Amsterdam canals than to take a cruise. The cruise is no-frills. Seats are in fours and are facing opposite each other. There's a recorded guide speaking in English to introduce the surroundings whenever it passes by a landmark. Some times the cruise captain will add in to give more inputs. It will be... More

There are many options of canal cruises like hop on and off.,etc but we opted for a one hour relaxed cruise that passes through Amster canal and through tourist interest areas. The boat had big glass windows and glass overhead to have clear view of structures on both sides of canals. The boat is quite long and runs on batteries... More

Nice 1 hour trip about the canals with good multilingual recording played at correct times. Nice and gentle sailing. Gives a different perspective to the city which all should enjoy.

Our hotel recommended this dinner cruise which leaves from in front of the central train station at 7:00 pm. The dinner was ok but nothing to write home about. Wine flowed freely and he staff was very friendly and warm. The buildings and canal boats along the canal are festinating to look at in the dark of the evening. We... More
