One hour walk that ruled in the booklet. This is an opportunity to see a completely different picture of the pedestrian vision. And very valuable thing for Amsterdam, we enjoyed a commentary in French. Congratulations! It is very rare in this city!

The food was 5 star, the service was amazing. We loved it, my out town guest said it was the best dinner cruise they had taken in many years. Thank you for a great night.

The cruise was good. However, since we got on the boat in the evening and there have not much lights on most of the buildings in the downtown of Amsterdam, the view was somewhat limited.

it is a good introduction to Amsterdam , shows all the main areas or location in central Amsterdam. Also provides some idea about the location or places which you can later go and explore in more details. It is one hour tour with commentary in Dutch and English. It would have been nice if they had some kind of time... More

Great introduction to Amsterdam if you've never been. Cruise takes you through the Oostdock area, past the Nemo Science Museum and into the city's canal system. Great overview of the City's history and landmarks. Worth the trip.

Well looked after by the staff, not a commentary lead tour which is what you want but enough information to give you a bit of background to where you are and what to see.

We decided to take this cruise on the first day of our vist to Amsterdam to have a first overview of the city and have dinner at the same time: at dusk the atmosphere is particularly charming and I think it was a good choice. The staff was friendly and they also gave some explanations, but only in English, which... More

I made the 100 Highlight cruise. And it does what it says. I bought my ticket on place and waited about 20 minutes to get into my boat. On boat the information comes from loudspeakers in three different languages (Dutch, Englisch & French). It is sometimes tricky to take good pictures. Either you are sitting on the window and can...

We took the 100 highlights cruise. Although they gave us a brochure explaining the 100 highlights, the cruise had a prerecorded tour that explained about 20 of them. Many were left out. The boat ride was calm.
