    The boot ride was amazing! We were lucky that the weather was sunny and warm, so it was even better for us to enjoy the view and see the famous attractions. The captain was funny and kept us all entertained. Personally I do have to admit I’m not sure if it’s worth a trip to the red lights museum. Within 30 mins we were already done with the tour. ‍♀️ However it’s interesting to know and see about the history. At the end of the tour you even get to take a free picture per Person and get it printed out right away!

    Was quite nice.

    I chose this combination offer for a spontaneous trip to Amsterdam. Collecting the tickets was easy and hassle-free. The places where I can find something was explained to me very well by the ticket seller. The canal cruise was great and even a bit funny thanks to the captain. The Red Light Secret Museum was a little different than I imagined and very cramped and crowded. Still, it was worth doing both. It was worth the money.

    Very nice, but difficult to find where the departure was.

    When we finally found the shop where you could have the tickets printed from an online purchase, then luckily we were explained where we had to go to get out, I hadn't seen that shop we had no idea and never found it, that could have been a little more clear!
