    Definitely, something that I would personally recommend. But I would also like to mention that it is relatively slow and can get a little boring especially if you do the 1-hour tour. However, I think that it is still worth the price and would recommend it to other people. If you want to take a step further thought then I would definitely recommend taking one of the tours that serve wine and cheese and even dinner :)

    The cruise was very informative, we booked the tour at 8 pm so we were able to see the city both when it is still bright and with the city lit up at night. The boat is half-open so make sure to bring a scarf or a jacket as it can get chilly. I recommend going there early (approximately 15 mins early) to secure your desired spot on the boat. The cruise offered a different perspective of the city in comparison to exploring it on foot. The tour was definitely a must-do in Amsterdam and personally, the price is reasonable.

    The guide had a fantastic personality and had us laughing quite often. A trip to Amsterdam is not complete without this tour! Great information about the various buildings along the canal and the general history of the city. Next time I am in Amsterdam, I will do the tour again, so much to see and learn.
