You can't visit Amsterdam without getting on a boat!
The audio commentary was well done and our boat captain did a great job of navigating the canals. It was a nice break from walking and very scenic. Worth the money .
You don't realize how much there is to see until you take a little cruise. This was great and informative. Not a long wait at all.
Had a great time! Only had a day layover in Amsterdam, and this was a great tour!
