What people are saying about Amsterdam

Was a good option to select a covered boat with the provision of wine and cheese. Enjoyable cruise along the canals of Amsterdam with live commentary in a light hearted manner. Generally. Groups were offered a cheese platter per 2 pax while if you are an individual traveller, you will get a single platter. This is good to minimise sharing of food in view of COVID. However, seatings are not exactly socially distanced but because the boat is not fully occupied, not sure if it is by design, there are still gaps between groups. Maybe better if spacings amongst groups are enforced. Our cups are regularly topped up so you will definitely have your fill. Would definitely recommend for a lazy afternoon along the picturesque canals.

Excelente experience to know the "real" Netherlands . Great time with the guide, always telling good, fun, and historical stories about visited places. Friendly driver and nice warmed Van.
