Me and my partner did this tour at 8pm, the open boat was much smaller than we anticipated and this made the tour much more personalised. There was blankets on board to ensure everyone was warm throughout the voyage, and it did not disappoint. Our...More

A nice way to see the city by cruising on the canals of Amsterdam. The boats are well kept and it is good to get out of the chill as you pass by the neighbourhoods..... worth the time and effort. Commentary in various languages.

This was a nice experience to wander through the canals of Amsterdam. It's a bit pricey (18 euros per person) but the tour lasts for 70 minutes so it gives you the time to relax and enjoy the cruise. There is an audio guide for...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

There were a couple of children on our boat. I just looked on their website and it says children 1-4 are free. We booked online and it gave you the option to add the free child.
