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 waren eine Gruppe von 11 Männern und fanden ausnahmslos alle, dass die Grachtenfahrt eine super Sache war. Bestes Zeichen dafür: die Fahrt war sehr kurzweilig und alle hatten mega Spaß! Einen großen Anteil daran hat natürlich vor allem die Leiterin "Laura", die mit unheimlich viel Hintergrundwissen diese Fahrt auf eine sehr sympathische und fröhliche Art und Weise begleitet und untermauert hat. Vielen Dank dafür! Wir hatten eine Fahrt mit inklusiven Getränken gebucht und wurden auch hier nicht enttäuscht. Von allem (Bier, Wein, antialkoholische Getränke) war mehr als ausreichend an Bord. Auch hierfür gibt es von uns fünf Sterne!
