The tour was amazing and Iearned much more than I thought I would, our guide was every funny and would make sure we all were prepared for what was next so we didn’t miss it. The only thing I wish would’ve been a little better was the windows, I went at 6.30pm but it was already very dark outside (the sunset was at around 4.40pm) and because of that we got to enjoy the tour with all the lights and Christmas decorations that are already up (I went nov. 13th) but it also meant that because the boat is closed, some lights would reflect on the windows and they weren’t super clean so you couldn’t get any good pictures and as a glass wearer the light reflection would sometimes hurt my eyes but other than that everything was great! I would recommend going at an earlier hour but plan ahead as the slots can book pretty quickly!

It was very good and relaxing! Nice music and atmosphere! And it was a very long trip for the price so I'm very happy with it! Only thing I would have loved or improved it was if there was a meal on board but they don't offer that so can't really complain

Boat cruise was interesting, short, informative stories - some of the places we saw we decided to get to know better and went afterwards to see them again (like Anne Frank museum). Boat was clean, captain was very nice and spoke several languages. Only minus - it's weird that we had to pick out voucher beforehand, even though we bought tickets online.
