      Very nice tour .. explanations a little in-depth, I thought something more than a normal explanation of how the city of Amsterdam was born. Overall, however, really nice, especially if done in the evening when everything in Amsterdam lights up. The only major flaw is the hour and a half of unreported queue. If we had known at the time of booking the tickets that there would be an hour and a half of waiting we would have decided for another time.

      Very nice boat trip on the Amsterdam canal! Pretty landscapes. Really cheap for an hour trip (14 euros per person). We don't have to choose a schedule, we are free to go when we want between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m., so you don't have to run everywhere to be on time.

      Definitely worth a trip!

      I think where possible, seeing a city by canal is a must. You get to see the quirky little back streets and we saw Anne Franks house too. The tour guide was funny and really informative. Only downside to this was that is was advertised as a 1-hour tour but we were on 1 hour 45mins! Which left us panicking as we had the coach back to Rotterdam to catch! Luckily that coach was late, otherwise we would have missed it!! Definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Amsterdam for the day, as it gets you out of the main hub for a bit.
