Chef Thomas provided a lovely fine dining experience for us as we cruised the canals of Amsterdam at night. The dinner included an amuse-bouche, salad, red pepper soup, and choice of fish or meat main. While the commentary on the sites was a bit think the meal and the atmosphere were delightful!

Did the candlelight trip with wine and cheese and could not fault it from start to finish. Plenty of wine throughout the two hour trip, at least 4 glasses and a wonderful view of Amsterdam! Staff were friendly and the value for money was outstanding!

I highly recommend the dinner cruise for groups and couples. It is a good way to see sites within the city. The only negative of this cruise is that they do not give you information on the buildings you are passing during the cruise. It is more for the dinner and then just enjoying the sites.

Booked a dinner cruise to celebrate partners birthday and must say it was a definite highlight of our holiday. For €75 each all of the food was prepared on board- and was exquisite, much better quality than many so called top end resturants I've visited. We were given a glass of prosecco on arrival and were served a four course... More

The big covered boats are such a dull prospect. Why would you want to sit on what is basically a floating bus, seeing Amsterdam through glass? And the pizza boats, yes well if that's your thing then go for it, but it's not a great way of appreciating anything except pizza and cheap beer. The hopper bus is brilliant: it... More

We booked this cruise to fill the evening with an activity that would keep us awake trying to adjust to the time difference from the east coast of the US. Two-hour cruise from 9-11p. Wine and Cheese and peanuts. Nothing fancy. Better part of the evening was the second half when the lights of Amsterdam were on. I wouldn't rush... More

Crew were friendly and attentive, pizza was lush and the alcohol flowed nicely! Would have been nice to be told where we were and what we were looking at by after a few wines we didn't care :) good idea to start the night.

Location at walking distance from the train station. Price is acceptable, around 17-18 Euro per person. Canal cruise takes about 1.5 hours and passes really magnificent places. Waiting time is acceptable, we had to wait about 15 minutes before the tour started. Explanation is given in several languages: German, English, Dutch, Spanish, ...
