A great way to spend an hour and a half. The evening trip made the event more magical as all the lights really added to the ambience. The cruise was comfortable and informative, the skippers added comments made it even more special. If you're in Amsterdam overnight this is a great way to explore the sights.

Great tour. Nice views. Unfortunately, the audio guide announcements were not always clear. It would have helped if it had been announced whether the sight was on the left or right in the direction of travel. Then you would have had to search less. Unfortunately, not all headphone jacks were functional.

The canal cruise was really impressive. Festive lighting outside and well heated on board. No curtains and beautiful houses. This drive is definitely worth it in the dark. If you have a voucher, you can exchange it for a ticket shortly before departure. We got there way too early, you really don't have to. Was totally uncomplicated and easy to find.
