Dorus and his college were great! The service was nice, it was raining when we came so we got an umbrella while we where waiting in the queue by the boat. Aswell after our paper shopping bag ripped when we were entering to the boat, and all our stuff almost fell into the river, the captain gave us one of... More

Really enjoyable night cruise. It was something we had really wanted to do and it didn't disappoint. The cabin was warm even with snow outside. The reason I have not given 5* is because there was no refreshments onboard and some of the seats were quite tight for the larger person. The guy at the dock said that if we... More

Me and my partner went on this cruise on valentines day around mid day, and we have the best 'captain' of the cruise. The cruise is really informative and great if you want to see a little more than just the red light district. the cruise takes you throughout the most beautiful canals in amsterdam! You're given headphones so you... More

We booked the 24hr 'hop on hop off' ticket thinking it would be a good way to get round Amsterdam. In a way it was but it only goes around the outer canals in one direction (clockwise). It was fine for what we wanted but we probably didn't use it as much as we had hoped. At stop number 2,... More

Booked this boat trip one evening while staying in Amsterdam for a few days this month. The trip was really nice and relaxing and you got to see lots of different places.

I enjoyed this trip along the canal, very relaxing and informative, got to see some really interesting places along the way, takes around an hour so good value for money, you can listen on the earplugs that are given to you which narrates in different languages. would recommend this trip, friendly and helpful staff.

We took the one hour canal cruise and it was really worthwhile as you get such a different perspective of Amsterdam than you do on foot. Other reviewers have said the commentary is terrible but I found it just right as it wasn't continuous so allowed you to take in sights in peace. Well worth doing.

Did a one hour cruise and the canal itself is great but the commentary tape was terrible - hardly any commentary for long periods and then just adverts for other attractions on the discount round. They could have put more effort in as the areas looked really historic and it could have been really good.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood 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.
