Amsterdam City Canal Cruise
The Amsterdam City Canal Cruise offers you fantastic views of the 17th-century buildings lining the canals and also shows off the growing 21st-century city that Amsterdam has become. You’ll see Amsterdam the way it really is – from the Golden Bend to Overhoeks, the city’s newest quarter, and from the Music Building in the harbor to the VOC ship, the Amsterdam.

I will start by saying the company allowed us to take a tour an hour earlier than our originally scheduled time, which we really appreciated. The tour location was difficult to find, even knowing it was across the street from Heineken. Apparently there are two separate tour companies very close to each other. During the tour, we were given cheap headphones to listen to a pre-recorded audio tour, rather than a real person. This made it extremely difficult to know what I was looking at sometimes. Eventually I just gave up trying to understand what I was seeing.
I arrived at the kiosk 15 minutes prior to my start time and was not allowed to board. I was told that I would have to wait an hour because the boat with full with a German tour group. I was on a tight schedule and almost then missed my time slot at the Ann Frank House.
We enjoyed the tour. The check in was simple and the staff was courteous. The scenery was beautiful..
Due to some unruly passengers, this cruise was not enjoyable. The captain should have done more to control the situation. Made for a bad experience.
when you are in Amsterdam , you have to do a canal cruise to see Amsterdam from the waterways while doing the cruise , there is commentary explain the different sites and buildings you are seeing there is also loads of photo opportunities while doing the cruise a pleasant way to spend a hour while in Amsterdam
A great way to experience Amsterdam. Start with the canal tour to get a good feel for the city overall.
Well worth it! You really get to see the City and it allows us to imagine historically the ships coming into the merchants homes with goods!
This tour was really quite terrible. There were not enough seats, thus no headphones so we didn't even get to hear the tour guide. I am not sure what the problem was, but it was a total waste.
Pleasant but not very entertaining. Seemed like the same thing throughout the cruise. It was a nice boat ride, but we would have liked to see more of the interesting things beside just the smallest house.
Locations are out of the way. The volume is too low to hear the guide. Honestly, would not recommend this excursion.
