All you need!

We considered taking the Amsterdam River cruise that had an open bar and Dutch cheeses but decided to skip the free drinks as it was already such a long day. This river cruise was more than enough as the views are spectacular, and the audio guide is very informative. We enjoyed it very much and took plenty of pictures as each bridge had something unique about it. I highly recommend this canal tour!


Unique experience!

I’d never had an experience like this! There was a small group of people in the open boat, and one hour seemed to pass so quickly as each passing of the bridge offered another amazing view! I filmed a video, and all of my friends were jealous of the experience. The tour includes an audio guide, and I found out so much about the city. I would highly recommend booking your canal cruise to everyone!
