    Very good value for money. For future the reference, the time on your ticket is for the museum and you can go on the canal boat tour at any time, I thought the time was for the boat as I don't think it was very clear in the email. The boat is big , so get there early to get choose your seats and also it's not open roof so if that is what you're looking for, maybe don't go for this option. But it was nice to relax our feet after all the walking through the museum. And the boat tour was beautiful.

    Great for your money. If you don’t understand english it may be a little hard on the canal tour. there is an audio tour in several languages but our guide made several corrections and side comments in english that others were not privy to due to the language barrier. overall great tho

    The museum and the boat tour were both 5 stars and it was great to book both in one place. I only gave this 4 stars though because it wasn’t made clear that you were supposed to show up to view the museum first at 0900 and then go check in to get your boat tour later. The people who worked in the boat tours building helped me out and explained it to me better. It was a shame that I wasted nearly an hour figuring it out though.
