“School Trip”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had the whole boat and did the hour long cruise. Everyone was provided with headphones which plug in for narration through the tour. Some worked better than others! Some of the windows steamed up through the tour so it was impossible to take pictures. Nice route and the kids enjoyed the tour.

Booked at a discount rate on P+O ferry on way over, went on hour long cruise helped orientate ourselves around Amsterdam, commentary ok. Spoilt by low sun and child infront insisting on keeping windows open despite it being -3 outside!!!!!!!

“1 hr canal cruise is a nice way to view the canals”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We did this on the last day of our holiday and had already walked around most of the canals but seeing it from the water added a new dimension. The commentary was good and the boat comfortable, well worth the money.

“100 Highlights”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Whilst any cruise on the canals of Amsterdam is a must, choose your boat company with care as we recently took a cruise with Grayline and were very dissappointed mainly because the audio sound was awful and we gained very little from this, in fact I discarded the head phones after a few minutes as useless and uncomfortable. I approached an employee of the company at the end of the cruise who said yes we know but the company will do nothing about it.....This was the most expensive of the cruises we saw and feel we were absolutely cheated....But Amsterdam is a great city to go to.

“Canal Trip”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We had a canal trip on Queens Day and so the route was lined with people partying and party boats on the canals as well that made the trip interesting. Personally I found that if the parties were not there the trip would have been a little tedious, that's me though and my wife enjoyed the trip.
The boat was clean and there was enough room for everyone on board.
The commentary was limited and did not give much information about the route followed or Amsterdam in general.
When in Amsterdam you should have a look at the Canals from water level and it is an easy, stress free way to spend an hour.
