The experience was smooth and since direct purchase tickets from the museum were sold out for the day I needed, this still allowed me to go to the museum on the day I could. The cruise was also a nice addition. It should be noted that the Audio guide for the cruise is included. The audio guide for the museum is not included and can be purchased separately if wanted.

Very positive experience. As for the van gogh museum it is very simple, you show the voucher and you enter. As for the cruise a little less, we had to look for the place to pick up and set the time of the cruise. It would be easier, book through the app and make a specific address of where to go! Overall, however, the cruise is beautiful, an experience to do absolutely in Amsterdam if it is the first time you visit it!
