What people are saying about Amsterdam

We had a great time on this cruise! Our skipper and host (Stein and Ri) were so fun and nice. They took the time to make the tour informative while also keeping it fun and cracking a plenty of jokes! Lovely people, boat and cruise. Would highly recommend! Plus, unlimited wine and cheese :)

I really enjoyed myself and so did my partner. Very interesting but not boring and even though the tour can last up to an hour and a half, it went so fast. The free beer tokens were a bonus and the Heineken tastes so much nicer than it does back home.

Awesome atmosphere, great staff, good fun, 3 lovely drinks and swashbuckling fun in the pirate ‘ice’ bar

Good experience but need find solution for deaf people

Awesome experience definitely a highlight of Amsterdam
