I called in advance to ask if it is possible to take my 3 month old baby with me on the cruise. I was told that that was no problem whatsoever. Upon embarking the boat, carrying my baby, I notified the crew once more, to make sure that everything was indeed fine. Halfway the cruise I politely asked if I... More

Booked up this trip For myself and my 80 year old nan. Nice boats , not too crowded, but I found the whole experience a little impersonal. I understand catering for tourists and different languages , but having prerecorded tapes and having to find everything yourself made the trip a little boring. Employ a multi lingual person , make the... More

Nice way to see Amsterdam from a different vantage point. About an hour long and in that time frame a good amount of Amsterdam history was explained. Did the tour at night based on a recommendation to see how the canals are lit up with the lights. I think it would have been better to see during the day to... More

We went to the cocktail cruise and really enjoyed it. It lasted two hours and we were provided with nibbles cocktails and wine. I think you could upgrade as certain people had cheeseboard and bread but we weren't offered anything when we booked. What would have been nice was if the had sheets on the table giving you the route... More

This was a really lovely cruise, offering a little bit of luxury and romance. We expected the boat to be basic and the cocktails to be much the same but this really wasn't the case. The seats were comfortable and padded, there were tablecloths and candles on the tables, the cocktails were delicious, the wine was unlimited, and the waiting... More

Just over an hour which was quite ample it was intresting see the canals as it gives a very different perspective. Worried the audio commentry wouldn't line up but it was spot on and actually more informative than the free walking tour sandmans we'd done the day before. A must do.

my boyfriend and I went on this cruse and enjoined it very much, we received very tasty cheese and wine with candlelight . the team explained about the sights that we saw on the way . in overall it is very nice way to spend the evening . the cruse lasted two hours , i think it should be shorter.
