    Very nice experience at sunset. An audio guide allows you to follow the visit in several languages simultaneously. Only negative point: the directions to get to the place because there is also a Canal Lover Amsterdam sign just tomorrow at the station. Not to be confused this is not the Dating Bridge. The meeting point is in front of the station opposite the ibis hotel with a large orange sign indicating lovers in very large format.

    An interesting cruise. Audio guide worked well, 17 languages were available. We were unlucky to have a large group of 45 (adult + kids) on board, who showed no respect. Made quite a lot of noise and were not interested at all. The skipper even stopped the boat for a while to ask again (the 3rd time) to be quiet so that the fellow sailors could enjoy the tour. But unfortunately. Still hats off to the skipper for remaining so calm.

    Booking process easy and uncomplicated. The booking was for a youth group of 17 people. We were then supposed to wait on site for the second ship, because the first was already very full and we should have boarded the next ship first so that we can/should sit together as a group. Unfortunately, we were then forgotten on the second ship, so we couldn't sit together, so 1 star was deducted. Otherwise very satisfied.
