Excellent Amsterdam Canal Cruise. - We had a lovely time on our Amsterdam Canal Cruise, the crew were exceptionally friendly and extremely entertaining, we laughed for nearly the whole voyage. The unlimited cheese and wine made for a very enjoyable trip. Highly recommended., even if we did get a little bit tipsy, but in a good way.

Wonderful late afternoon tour. - As we left the Ann Frank House, the boat was just loading along the riverwalk. We were 30 minutes early, but they had room for us. The young men from "Voyage Amsterdam" warmly welcomed us all and explained our upcoming experience. They owned their boat and were very proud of the restoration they had just completed...it was beautiful and very comfortable. As we took off down the canal, Fenton served us the beer or wine of our choice and William started explaining what we were seeing along the river. They traded off sharing information and some very interesting historical or background facts about the areas we were moving through. William was a very competent captain. He even managed to find a spot at the side of a busy intersection to allow us all to see and take pictures of the spot where we could see through about 8-10 overpass arches far down the canal. At first we were a little disappointed that this boat wasn't the wine and cheese tasting excursion we had booked, but the young men made up for it with their stories and warm personalities.

Awesome evening experience - The crew was incredible, specially Pimk. From the service to the insights and the experience everything was really good. My mom and I spent the evening on the cruise seeing the difference between the day and the lights at night was awesome.

Overall very good - Cannot complain about the trip. The cheese and wine was lovely The tour guides were fantastic. My only complaint would be that you allow large groups of 20 on the same trip and they took over and others on the boat felt left out of conversations. Maybe a private tours would be better for a group that size for others to have the best experience possible.

Great tour! - The tour was very nice. Our tour guide told us about history but also funny and significant landmarks that we passed. The information was not overwhelming like other tours, it was very relaxing.

Irresponsible tour - Was notified that my cruise was canceled. Looked like it was overbooked. The operator changed times numerous times. Very irresponsible. Was told I would receive a refund. Still no refund!
