Went on a one hour trip in the night...it was quite a nice trip, indeed. Just could not control the laughter while the presenter said funny things about Amsterdam. Got to see lot of places. Worth the while.

Amsterdam is famous for its unique canals: a trip to Amsterdam would be incomplete without going on a canal cruise. The boats are ideal for tourists who want to record their cruise on video or make hundreds of photos. It gives you a different view of the canals.

We went on a 75-minutes cruise by Amsterdam Canal Cruise. There were just a few people on board so it was almost like a private tour. It was peaceful, enjoyable and relaxing time with fantastic views from a different angle. I think this is a great way to see the city.

The canal cruise is a must-do in Amsterdam. I would advise that this to be first on the list as it is like a 'mixed platter' kind of route to take before you visit the attractions in Amsterdam one by one. You will pass most of the landmarks including the Seven Bridges, Anne Frank's House etc.
I find the boathouses interesting. Observe that the buildings are a bit tilted at places. All infos are delivered via audio in cruise boats. However you'd prefer to spend most of the time out of the roofed cabin. Any way you want to experience the cruise is still good.

We were in Amsterdam for the one night and took a canal cruise early the next morning. We one of the two main companies at the terminus opposite the main railway station and our hotel. We boarded almost immediately and set off firstly into the large river and port area. You can see the large Europe river cruise boats and the giant barges. We then entered the canal system and it was great to see all the architecture and life going on on the canal side. It gives you chance to see most of the picturesque areas and get some photos from a different perspective. The commentary was good, but we preferred to be outside at the back of the boat rather than inside. Well worth the money and must do when in Amsterdam.

The tickets we brought lasted 24 hours, you can hop on and hop off anywhere along the route within 24 hours.

You get an english speaking history along the way, I love the buildings and the views
