Everything was great except that it promised to take you to Tulip Experience and we really wanted to go there and they didn't take us to that experience but to another farm when what we bought clearly said Tulip Experience, we felt cheated.

The audioguide included interesting informstions (although I personally prefer a live tour guide). What I did not like, was the boat itself, as in the back, there was limited view because of the roof and the walls; unfortunately I could not see the buildings properly.

Our main concern was that the skipper was not focusing on his job. He did some of the explaining looking at the passengers and not where the boat was going. On at least 3 occasions, he left the wheel house (once to get a drink ) with no one in charge of the boat, While in the wheelhouse he had his feet up on the console on a few occasions and wcould be seen on his phone on several occasions, it looked like he was typing He was not professional and didn't make us feel safe.

Der Reiseleiter hat die Tour nicht kommentiert, der Audioguide wurde von ihm erst nach 20 Minuten eingeschaltet. Zudem schaute er ständig auf sein Smartphone und ließ sehr laut Musik laufen. Als der Audioguide dann funktionierte, musste man diesen aufgrund der lauten Musik noch lauter stellen. Er war unseres Erachtens sehr unkonzentriert.

Comfortable tour. Interesting multi lingual commentary. Unfortunately, Rain spoilt the pictures and lights were not on, to enjoy the evening excitement.

Enjoy a relaxing cruise in the evening

Enjoy a wonderful evening cruise through the canals of Amsterdam that lets you bask in the warm glow of the city illuminated at night. The unique architecture of buildings lining the sides of the canals and the hundreds of bridges you can pass under are lit up with a thousand lights, creating the perfect setting for your cruise. You will be welcomed on board the luxurious boat by a waiter, from whom you can order a cold drink. Take advantage of the onboard audio guide with your free headphones, available in up to 21 different languages, that will walk you through the city of Amsterdam, its interesting history, and how it became what it is today. If you're not in the mood for the audioguide, you can just sit back and relax as the city introduces itself to you, one picturesque view at a time.

Elevate your experience with a multilingual audio guide

Your cruise comes with a personal audio system that offers commentary in 21 languages. Take in the city's magical appeal from where it’s best observed, the canals of Amsterdam, and cruise down the canals for a romantic experience. Learn about this magical country, its past glory, and present hype; as a part of this scenic and breathtaking cruise.

Cruise past the Red Light District

The infamous De Wallen or De Walletjes is the largest and best-known red-light district in Amsterdam.
