We went and did a tour at the Ann Frank House and then went on a Canal cruise right after. It was easy to find our boat, the employees were very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our experience. I would go on this canal cruise again and recommend it to others.

A very nice tour of the canals of Amsterdam. Very polite and personable captain who also tells stories about the city and etc. during the trip. Definitely worth it. A huge advantage not to have a blanket or etc. on your head and to see everything in the open air.

The meeting point was easy to find, the boys were very nice, everything was very straightforward. Nice route and interesting anecdotes to this beautiful city. In the windy weather, in addition to the pillows, blankets would have been nice - so warm up if the weather is not so bombastic anyway :)
