Boat was open to the weather. Hot chocolate would have made the experience 5 stars but it was very informative and the guide was great. Viewing the city at night was beautiful. Highly recommend it.

Just knowing that people live in the beautifully landscaped area across from the canal and trying to imagine what life is like every day. Just cruising down the canal was so peaceful and the weather was gorgeous and our hostess guide was adorable and knowledgeable.

The cruise is especially nice at sunset. Too bad there are no non-alcoholic beavarages on the ship. Other than that, the captain was funny.

Amsterdam Guided Evening Canal Cruise with Bar on Board
Great short trip around the canals. Boat was open style and pretty packed. Guides were fun but young. Doing it over I’d pick a nicer boat with more space, wine included and maybe more history oriented guiding.

The museum is of reasonable size for a family visit, not crowded, interactive with videos and activities, and the audio guide allows visiting at one's own pace.

Really nice! Recommend it to everyone, given that the guides are Floris & Idel. They should get a raise :-). Thankyou!
