We enjoyed this trip through the your canals. The pizza was delicious and the beer was cold. Being able to join the SAIL parade was a special event. The only thing we would have liked more was a commentary on what we were passing by during the cruise. The "crew" did a good job of answering our questions as we... More

A lovely evening cruising the canals. Two good sized cocktails each alongside wine, soft drinks and nibbles all within the price which was unexpected but great. Good value for money.

We traveled to Amsterdam 2nd time in Aug 2015. This time I booked the cruise available with Madam Tussads musuem as a combi ticket. I would say this cruise was a revelation. Much better when compared to what was included in our Holland pass last time around. It took us to a tour of full 1 hour and the commentary(multiple... More

We should've done our homework - so this is our fault. We purchased a 24 hour Canal Bus (hop on and off as much as you like) pass for our family, and were convinced to purchase (with that - at a discount) a Van Gogh museum ticket. When i asked (2 or 3 times) if those tickets could be purchased... More

Had a wonderful dinner cruise with these guys! Nice tour in the summer around sunset, and it was about 2 hours total. Setting was beautiful and staff was fabulously nice. Word to the wise that the steak is cooked to death to a well done, but the mash is pure butter and sexy! Unlimited beverages, wine included. Fabulous way to... More

The boat tour itself was fabulous. We were on the water as lights started to come on around the canals and on the bridges. The crew gave us good information and anecdotes and had music playing. However, the pizza was not very good, even for takeaway pizza. (Plus, it is worth noting, the pizzas were quite small.) The ice cream... More

We really enjoyed this tour through the canals. The tour was audio but we had an excellent boat driver who had us where we were meant to be every time.

We booked this through the main Tourist Information at Central Station. The tour was ready to leave when we arrived but there was a long delay whilst the 'pilot' argued about taking a family with a small child. We waited for a long time before another member of staff came and, we presume, told him to get on with it.... More

Informative cruise with friendly staff. The food was surprisingly good; one of our favorite meals in AMS. They accommodated our gluten free diner (we gave notice when booking the tour). Overall this was a wonderful value and experience for our family.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
