We booked the canal cruise with 12 people and were all thrilled and satisfied! You sit very comfortably on large, cuddly cushions, in the middle free tea and stroopwaffels were served on tables. Chilled beer, Alster and Co. could be purchased for €2.50 per can. Our German tour guide and driver were very nice and funny. What the tour guide told us was very entertaining and authentic - no rattling off dates and boring historical information, but also information about the lifestyle of the people of Amsterdam. And above all: no annoying headphones in your ears ;) Free listening is definitely more pleasant. When the tour was over after 90 minutes, we would have preferred to stay seated ;) Highly recommended!

Top canal cruise

Beautiful trip through the small canals of Amsterdam, good German-speaking tour guide with excellent information about the city.... but small drawback.... talked a bit very quietly.... it was difficult to hear everything in the back seats... A small tip... a microphone for the tour guide would make the trip even more informative for all participants... but still TOP !!!

Wir haben die Grachtentour an einem Sonntag um 18 Uhr bei strahlendem Sonnenschein und bester Laune gemacht. Der Ablegersteg ist etwas unübersichtlich, der Andrang groß, aber die Jungs geben sich Mühe, alles zu koordinieren. Das Boot war gemütlich, es sind ca. 30 Personen mitgefahren. Unser Guide Theresa hatte super gute Laune, war humorvoll und die Fahrt sehr unterhaltsam und informativ. Zu Beginn haben wir einen „Dealer“ angefahren, der die Bier- Vorräte aufgefüllt hat. Zudem gab es zwei Käseplatten mit Senf, die rumgereicht wurden. Das grösste Manko an der Fahrt: ES WAR ZU WENIG WEIN DA!!! Der Rosé-Wein war bereits angebrochen und nachdem die Flasche leer war, gab es auch keinen mehr. Weißwein war auch schnell weg und den Roten haben wir nie gesehen (war angeblich nicht gekühlt und somit ungenießbar). Das Bier wurde sehr angepriesen, sodass die Flaschen Corona zum Schluß auch noch den Weg zu uns fanden. Insgesamt war es eine schöne Fahrt, aber sie hätte noch schöner sein können!
