I had a flight cancel , so I decided that I wanted to see the city. Since, I was traveling by myself , I thought the Canal cruise would be the best choice. So, glad that I did!!! It was great, the crew that night did a great job of explaining the history of the city and took great care of us. I would highly recommend

It was an amazing boat trip, we enjoyed our drinks with my friends and the beautiful night view of Amsterdam from the canal. Captain Slow and the other 2 girls (unfortunately don't remember their names) the one from Italy and the other girl was a local, they did an amazing job, making us laugh while learning more things about the city. The crew tried to make us feel comfortable and have an unforgettable experience, i can reassure that they successfully achieved that with ease.

Best water experience in Amsterdam. Beautiful. Calm. Quiet. Best time is 6pm because it's bright when the journey starts, and then when it's nearly finished, the sky gets darker, it's absolutely beautiful. I loved it, without a doubt. Lovely staff too, very funny, they'll explain everything, give you a blanket, and even serve you a drink. Make sure you bring a warm hat and a scarf and jacket for the cold breeze
