      This is not worth it!
      , Oct 2021
      The fact that the cruise is no where near the museum and the whole thing is very confusing and misleading……a real disappointment not to say rip-off!
      Netherlands blocks entry due to Covid but still no refunds.
      , Sep 2021
      Although advertised as no refunds allowed we were unable to travel to Amsterdam due to the Netherlands blocking Americans from entering unless a 10-day quarantine requirement was met. From the quarantine announcement to our tour date there were less than 10 days so it was impossible to for us to make the tour. Despite the Netherlands preventing us from entering the country the tour operator was unwilling to issue a refund. I would not recommend this tour operator.

      Very good price. The canal cruise is totally worth it, especially in the evenings. You'll have an audio guide and nearly no waiting time. Booking the canal cruise ticket was a bit complicated because you had to go to a tickets and tours shop near Amsterdam central station to book a time slot. Rijksmuseum was amazing too and is a must see!
      Awful customer service
      , Aug 2021
      This was the worst customer service! At first we could not even locate their office near the museum--we had to ask another tour office. After the museum, we we walked to try and locate Dock A and walked across the city--literally! We were told to go to Central station, which we did. We got there and saw a sign for Love Canal tours--walked down to the area, but no cruise boat was there. Another customer was also waiting. We were exhausted from going through the crowds (it was extremely crowded due to pride week) and decided to wait until the next day. I sent messages via chat, but there was no response. The next day, we did find one office that was open and were told that we were supposed to go to dock B, not A--which again, was very far away. We ended up leaving Amsterdam without going on a cruise. When I looked at some of the reviews I see that most people were not very impressed so I guess we did not miss much. As I said the customer service was awful-- No wonder this was offered with the museum--it needed help. the museum was wonderful and too bad we stopped our tour without seeing all of it just to search for this Love Canal cruise. I asked for a partial refund since we never made the cruise, but they said the boat left the area as indicated on the map.

      Museum visit in Amsterdam

      There were really no lines to skip but having the ticket reduced worry. The canal cruise was no where near the museum. Had to go all the way to central station area and then got bounced around until we found the right quay. That was unexpected and time consuming.
      No need to buy this
      , Jun 2019
      There is no need to buy this tour package since getting into the museum was easy with no line and there are plenty of easily accessible canal cruises. We wasted too much time trying to redeem our voucher at the museum since we really needed 2 vouchers; one for each. The museum wanted to keep the voucher but we needed it for the canal cruise as well! As a result we wasted a lot of time finding a Love Canal area to book our canal cruise and convince them not to take our voucher and then go back to the museum. Very inefficient!!!!!
      Skip the line @Rijksmuseum and 1 hour canal cruise

      Line for museum was very long, so skip the line did not apply. Directions to canal cruise not clear. Otherwise the museum and canal ride was wonderful...
      Rapide et efficace

      Passage rapide et prioritaire par la caisse et au contrôle des billets. Amabilité et courtoisie de la parte du personnel.
      Un grand bravo pour le musée, mais déception pour le combiné gâteau
      , Jul 2020
      très belle visite du Rijksmuseum, mais nous n'avons pas trouvé le gâteau à proximité du musée et avons traversé tout Amsterdam pour pouvoir embarquer près de la gare; c'est ceci qui explique la note Si nous avions su, nous aurions pris des réservations séparées
