    The cruise was nice. I wish I would have booked one that had a bar or alcohol on board. The driver was kind. We got our own earbuds to listen to commentary that was pre recorded but she added some extra commentary. Went through great canals and saw the Anne Frank House.

    I found this a very nice experience, in my opinion it cannot be missing in Amsterdam because by taking the boat tour you can admire all its peculiarities, all aided by the guide in all languages also in Italian. The boat is indoors, therefore condensation forms inside but at each place there are glass spannavers so you can always see outside without fogging the glass. The tour lasts about an hour.

    A beautiful and instructive experience, during the cruise that took us through the most important canals of Amsterdam it was possible to admire the beauty of the city and at the same time learn historical aspects of the city that we did not know thanks to the audio guide, to be strongly recommended
