    The cruise was amazing, we saw Amsterdam in the lights of sunset. The cheese is great and you have a variety of drinks available (all types of wines,sodas and beer) for you. The captain and the host were amazing, told so many good stories about the city and the canals.highly recommend the tour close to sunset as you can see the city light up.

    My fiancé and I really enjoyed this trip! The hosts were great and provided some really fun and interesting insight into Amsterdam and Netherlands history. There is unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks, as well as really great Dutch gouda cheese and other snacks including the famous stroopwafel. The sights were beautiful and I would definitely recommend this trip to friends and family visiting Amsterdam in the future.

    Booked this tour with a group of friends for a weekend getaway - the team was very accommodating and was able to reschedule a friend and I for another hour as we were running a tad bit late. Staff on the cruise was incredibly jovial and welcoming, and the snacks were a wonderful post-dinner treat. Big shoutout to the crew and Captain Diederick as they helped me track down and deliver my handbag as I had left it on the boat - all with good patience. Really recommend doing this tour on the first day of every tourists vacation in Amsterdam!
