    It was enjoyable. The staff was awesome. Very friendly and accommodating. If you want good pictures, you must have a seat next to an open window. Otherwise, all the bars surrounding windows get in the way of good photo opportunities. We went on a warm sunny day and the sun was beating down on us. It started to get uncomfortable. Bring a hat if it’s sunny.

    Well done route, captain - SUPER! It is very welcoming and friendly, which lifts the mood and the series of houses of wonderful architecture seems even more beautiful and leaves just a fabulous impression of Amsterdam. Ron and Nel in the form of a cheerful dialogue told interesting stories about Amsterdam and its inhabitants. Loved the tour and attractive price

    Enjoyed this trip, was given a new pair of ear phones to listen to the audio, the driver also spoke in English to tell us some of the history of the buildings. Boat was nice and warm which was a bonus due to cold weather at the time. Arrive early so you get to sit next to the window.
