Excellent time, one of the very few to offer this cruise in December. The Captain was very skilled as this is a huge boat. The Chef was so attentive and the food was amazing. I was highly impressed with the flavors.

The tour was about an hour and the cometary was via a pre recorded commentary and was available in many languages. I found the tour very informative and certainly learnt things about the... More

Come on, you know you want to see inside the canal houses and this is your chance. Take the evening cruise and get a peek at daily life in house boats and canal houses. The cruise was €16 and an hour long on a very clean boat. The pre-recorded bit is in numerous languages and while a little hoakie, there... More

Nice cruise for 1 hour with good information and nice to get a sense of what to do when walking around. Some things you see that you wouldn't otherwise and very relaxed. Nice to do in the evening.

Pizza, Ice cream & unlimited beer/wine. The price for 90 mins and the meal/drinks was well worth it! Would definitely do again! Friendly staff too! (Ziggy, Zara, Michelle)😊

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.
