Good if you want to soak up the atmosphere

As the name of the tour suggests, this is more for people who have already done an educational tour and want something a bit more laid back. The tour guide did give us pieces of information but not a lot. We learnt most of what we knew the day before on another tour.

A very informative & enjoyable way to experience Amsterdam's canals

This trip at 25 euros per person including 2 drinks was good value. Taking a smaller, open top boat (only April-October) enables you to travel along some of the smaller canals and under some lower bridges and it is a great way to experience the city. Our guide, Nick, was very helpful and personable. We were lucky that the weather was warm and sunny for our trip but I would still recommend this for spring/summer visitors to Amsterdam. I think there are blankets available if it's a bit cool!

Crociera nel canali di Amsterdam é un'esperienza indimenticabile! Skipper molto gentile e disponibile. Ci ha spiegato molte cose durante la navigazione. Punto d'incontro comodissimo nelle vicinanze della Stazione Centrale di fronte all'Hotel Hilton in una piccola ansa. Noi abbiamo optato per una barca non troppo grande (20-22 persone) aperta, in quanto si vede meglio il panorama e di riflesso si riescono a fare meglio le fotografie oltre ad una leggera brezza che rinfresca quando fa caldo. I battelli lunghi con le vetrate (vetro/plastica) scaldano e si vede molto meno, nostra opinione personale.
