Beautiful boat tour with great guides!

A nice and calm boat tour that really let you enjoy being on the canals! Great guides and with the possibility to buy drinks and snacks onboard. The o l’y slightly negative thing was that it was difficult to hear the guides telling about the city depending on where you where sitting in the boat. Other than that I would definitely recommend this boat tour!

Terrific canal ride

My family was pleased with the canal ride. It was appropriate for our family with 3 children (10, 9, 7) and the staff appropriately interjected bits of history about Amsterdam. It was a hot day so being able to purchase beverages was nice. One hour is the right amount of time, and we enjoyed the canal route. Bravo! -Be sure to go to the Hop-on, Hop-off venue to check-in

Tour Super - Ticket Abholung könnte einfacher sein

Hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht, allerdings war das Ticket Office (Tours&Tickets) geschlossen als wir dort ankamen, der Angestellte der noch dort war hat uns weg geschickt. Auf dem Boot selber haben wir die Guides gefragt, diese waren sich nicht sicher ob es die richtige Fahrt war, haben uns dann aber einfach mitgenommen. Die Guides waren sehr freundlich, es war lustig und informativ. Ich würde die Tour weiterempfehlen!
