Amazing experience! A great cultural immersion with the best guides we could ever imagined! Iris and Pim did such a great job that we already want to go back! Full of curiosities and a very pleasant and comfortable boat! I totally recommend it! Do it! You won’t regret!

Was a nice relaxed tour through Amsterdam and you could let the city work its magic on you in the evening

Lots of interesting information about Amsterdam, nice staff, cold drinks, highly recommended.

If you're going to visit many museums, buying this card is absolutely worth it
