What people are saying about Westerkerk

Planned a one day trip to Amsterdam for a birthday. Although we had to book the canal cruise upon arrival, the planning and explanation on the booking was very practical. We had no surprises and still had plenty of time leftover in our day to visit the city. The cruise was great and the museum, even as crowded as it was, ended being just what any Van Gogh enthusiast would hope the experience to be.

Worked well for us. Went straight to ticket office in Damrak central Amsterdam and got a boarding ticket for cruise. Decent one hour cruise to get a good feel of city from waterline level. Van Gogh ticket was essential as we saw walk-ups being turned away and told 'booked all week'.

Pacote com um preço simpático que inclui entrada no museu Van Gogh e um passeio de 1 hora pelos canais de Amsterdao. Correu tudo muito bem, recomendo!
