Really great experience. Would definitely recommend doing this at twilight so you can watch the city light up and see then reflected on the water. We didn't listen to the guide as we were busy talking and watching the city float by which was a very lovely way of experiencing the cruise.

We enjoyed this city cruise tour of Amsterdam - we bought some snacks in the shop to eat on board - tour lasted approx 70 minutes. Commentary available in different languages - headsets provided. I would have liked more commentary but overall a good tour seeing Amsterdam from a different perspective

Excellent relaxing experience to see the city of Amsterdam from another perspective. Choice of several languages. Opportunity to go outside for better photos. I listened to a comment that told me to place myself on the port side of the boat for better photos and he is right! Put yourself on the port side of the boat.
