This cruise was very pleasant, the price attractive, not too many people in the boat. The guide told us lots of anecdotes about the city of Amsterdam, more or less understandable depending on the level of English, but still accessible. Be careful, on a sunny day, bring sunscreen, glasses and hats. In any case, we are not disappointed with the activity

Good, not expensive guided tour of Ámsterdam's canals, the meeting point is near anne frank house. The tour was good, the voice of the guide could have been louder, I got a feeling that the guide had already done many tours that day and he was a bit tired haha The boat is small for 15 people aproximately. And it has no roof so you can take pictures easily. The views were great. The captain took us around the canals. There are drinks available on board for 2,50€
