Really good tour guide and comfortable boat ride

I was annoyed that we were unable to obtain a seat on the appointed day because the boats were very busy and over-sold. It was not explained at all that a seat was not guaranteed when purchased. However, they did put on an extra boat in the evening, if we had chosen to take it, or we could go the following day, which turned out to be a good choice. The captain of the boat was an excellent and entertaining guide, and in the end I was very satisfied with result.

A beautiful boat ride for a fairly reasonable price.

My friends and I enjoyed riding around the boat and seeing the city from a different angle. They have an audio guide as well - you put earphones in, and a pre-recorded message plays at various intervals - but we didn’t find it engaging enough and opted instead to just sit outside and watch the city (without hearing the historical tidbits)

Lovely cruise along the canals of Amsterdam

On a cold day in Amsterdam this was the perfect way to view the canal houses from the warmth of the boat. We heard about the history of the city from the audio guide (included) and also some further information from our captain. It was a nice addition to another walking tour we had done earlier in the trip.

The captain was good. The views were great. The commentary stupid.

The earphones were very uncomfortable. Take your own earbuds. The commentary done by the couple was super dumb. We did learn a few things but we wanted more history and less cheesy small talk. You could do SO much more in terms of information. The boat was clean. The captain did a good job.

A great introduction to a break in Amsterdam

We decided to go on a cruise early on day 1 of our break. We were not disappointed: beautiful weather, very clean and comfortable boat, superb captain (Ruben). The audio tour was useful but the humour was a bit forced. A great introduction to acclimatise us to Amsterdam. Excellent
