Pass By: Houseboat Museum, Prinsengracht 296 K, 1016 HW Amsterdam The Netherlands
A houseboat (different from boathouse, which is a shed for storing boats) is a boat that has been designed or modified to be used primarily as a home. Some houseboats are not motorized, because they are usually moored, kept stationary at a fixed point and often tethered to land to provide utilities. However, many are capable of operation under their own power. Float house is a Canadian and American term for a house on a float (raft); a rough house may be called a shanty boat. In Western countries, houseboats tend to be either owned privately or rented out to holiday-goers, and on some canals in Europe, people dwell in houseboats all year round. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, Amsterdam, London, and Paris

Perhaps a microphone for the tour guide. It was difficult to hear at times. Otherwise very pleasant trip.
Nice tour of the Amsterdam canals with very friendly host and lively commentary. Comfy seating (not squished in together like many of the other boats). The local cheese was yummy, and it was nice drinking a glass of wine while taking in the beauty of the canals near sunset.
This cruise was amazing, snacks were great and the crew kept the wine flowing!! We ate before the cruise after reading the other reviews, we suggest it also!
We had a very nice time on the cruise. The crew was efficient, knowledgeable and personable. There was no limit to the amount of wine you can drink. The wasn’t much candlelight as sunset is so late this time of year.
The variety of wine and cheese was good. It was a relaxing ride through the canals and the two hosts were very attentive. Not a bad experience just nothing WOW about it.
We had alot of fun...wine was plentiful and the cheese and snackes were perfect..highly recommend. Easy to.find right outside Central station.
Great wine paired with great cheese. Everything was wonderful. Seeing all the canals at night was beautiful.
This was a fun way to see the canals in Amsterdam. Of course we had commentary on the high lights of the area and were amazed to see so many river boats turned to house boats docked along the canals. The cheese and wine were good and a fun point of conversation with the individuals that sat with us. A great way to get to know those from different countries.
Amazing, definitely worth doing.
Would highly recommend this tour. City by boat is great at night. The tour guide was great and the steward kept pouring the wine. It was probably one of the most interest tours we did at night. Just to sit back, relax and watch Amsterdam go past. Seeing the house boats at night was great. Would do it again next time I go to Amsterdam.
