    Simply great! We were served very well. There were very tasty wines; White, rosé and red. Non-alcoholic drinks were also offered. The guides were very friendly and funny. The cheese was offered with delicious, sweet mustard. We thought the tour was great... And would book it again at any time.

    Great experience. Staff was knowledgeable of the history and housing along the water and the drinks/cheese available were fantastic! We came in from Paris and arrived late, passing our booking time. After visiting the Anne Frank house, we gave it a shot and asked if we could still go on the boat and they were more than accommodating by honoring out earlier reservation! It was well worth the money spent. Great time!

    Had a great time on the cruise. My bestie and I had scheduled an earlier time slot, but our time slot changed, and it was a blessing in disguise. The team was accommodating and changed our time slot in-person. We enjoyed the cruise at night instead. To be honest the city and canals are just a whole different vibe under the night sky. We enjoyed the cheese and wine! Quick tip, be careful when stepping onto the boat, it's easy to trip due to the floors leveling (it raises in height ever so slightly), so watch your step. Unfortunately I don't remember the names of our hosts, but they gave very informative details on the canals and the city of Amsterdam as a whole. So it's 10/10 for me!
