“Night cruise is very pretty”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a night cruise, which was worth doing to see some houses we woudn't have and to see the city lit up at night.

“Outstanding DInner Cruise”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food was outstanding and the scenery amazing. Since most of the homes along the canals don't have curtains, we could share our dinner with the locals, who were enjoying their dinner at home! The wine was free flowing, and the tables were beautifully set. I highly recommend this for one of the evenings you have to spend in the city.

“Good view of the City”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The canal cruise is a good way to get a feel for the city.
The trip, lastiing just over an hour, goes through the main canals and out into the harbour. The recorded commentary was helpful and the captain added lots of snipets of his own.

“Canal trip”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is a must
Relaxing way to see around amsterdam for one hour. You have ear phones (which you keep) to listen to all the information about the city. A very pleasant tour and it was nice and warm on the boat.

“A Must do!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Amsterdam is famous next in line to Venice for it's canals and taking a dinner canal cruise is an absolute must. Would have preferred and personal canal tour on a gondola but not with the current weather.

You really get a chance to see much of AMS on the one of the cruises. I recommend the Blue Boat Co. They are funny, knowledgable and serve great drinks.
