We ended up being on the same boat as the people who paid for the unlimited drinks / cheese. We were the only ones who hadn't signed on to that / didn't get it. I paid for 1 drink, but my friends and my husband decided not to have a drink The boat also didn't quite look the same.

Loved the tour! The hosts made sure everyone felt comfortable and even waited for a few ones who were late. The tour itself took a bit over an hour just because the guide really wanted to make sure we saw everything without a hurry. Great people, great sense of humor, amazing storytelling and experience!

What a brilliant thing to do while in Amsterdam. JP and Rick were brilliant guides. They were informative, funny and engaging. The open top boat was comfortable with blankets and a bar. It was beautiful floating along the canals at dusk. Would recommend
