We enjoyed the views of the canal houses and had a good tasting of wine and proper Gouda cheese (information on whether this was included in the price or not, could be more clear). Timing could not have been better (had the 6pm tour) for the mix of daylight and nighttime experience. Tourguides did a good job as well.

Very enjoyable cruise of the Amsterdam canals. Our hosts were very friendly, informative and told the history with amusing tales. Cheese and wine was unlimited, nice cheese and wines on offer too. Definitely recommend Flagship cruises.

Very enjoyable: it was an effective introduction to the inner town and its history, made by the captain Bas, as well as a cozy trip managed by host Tamsin, who served a delicious local cheese with wine

Excellent tour of the Jewish Quarters and history behind World War 2 and the Holocaust. Our tour guide, Earon was excellent and made the tour great despite the cold weather.

The guides were amazing and super nice. The boat tour seemed more personable and less like a tourist trap.
