It was a nice, comfortable tour with about 20 people on the (open) boat. The information provided by the tour guides was very informative and neither too much nor too little. Drinks (including cocktails) can be purchased on the boat at fair prices. We can only recommend the tour. Thanks to Faried and Adriana

The canal cruise was excellent even though our 6.15pm slot was in some way seemingly delayed by half an hour. If you've been on a canal cruise I think you won't see any traffic jams. The employee for the company eventually admitted that it wasn't delayed but we were just moved on to the next cruise. As I said the cruise was terrific, but the knock on effect of our trip not leaving till 7.00pm meant I lost a booking for my wife's 70th birthday dinner in a nice restaurant because we were too late. That was really disappointing.

Second time on a cruise with Flagship Amsterdam and we’ll keep coming back. At first I was a bit disappointed as it seems evening cruises are now only in closed boats while I was expecting an open one. Once the tour started that was not really an issue though, the windows were really clean so we could see outside without issues and the our great host made it a really nice journey.
