Unfortunately the experience was not as described. The boat was not like on the pictures. The drinks + snacks offered were limited + not as in the original advertisement.

Es war so ein toller Trip. Wir haben viel von Amsterdam gesehen und gelernt. Viel Insider Wissen, was einem auf normalen Touren nicht vermittelt wird. Ein super Guide vielen Dank

Great experience! Cruising around Amsterdam's canals in a really comfy and nice boat, with drinks and snaks and a great guy as our guide!

Great tour and great guide. Mark was very personable and funny. This was all around an excellent experience. Definitely take this tour and not one of the big tourist boats.

The boat ride was really special- it was a great way to see the light festival. Our captain was kind and attentive and the boat was warm and cozy. The captain didn't have much extra knowledge about the artwork, which would have made it even better.
