We had a super friendly humorous boat captain. The combination of audio facts and the captain's input made the canal cruise more interesting. The boat was clean and spacious. We got there earlier than our time slot but the Blue Boat Company were happy to switch our time to an earlier slot. The canals we cruised on had lots of interesting buildings along them and the views around were very scenic. All in all this canal cruise made my weekend trip to Amsterdam very memorable.

The tour was great! We had Lea as our guide and were a very small group on Friday evening at 8 p.m. (5 people). Of course we understood everything much better in German than if the tour had been in English. We were able to ask lots of questions and it was really interesting. We were surprised by the red light district. We didn't expect that when you think of Amsterdam. THANK YOU Lea for this unforgettable, informative evening!

Captain Tim was fantastic! Very friendly and great local knowledge and insight into Amsterdam. He always had the answers! The boat cruise included great sites and snacks/drinks included were great. Would recommend a hat as we were fortunate with a very hot day. Overall would highly recommend this activity.

Really enjoyed it, was lovely and relaxing although probably didn’t need to pay for the deluxe drinks package as only had 2 drinks!

Unfortunately, there is no food on board, so you should plan ahead.
