Best tour for busy people

Reviewed by: Kyoko, 2016/09/26

I went to the Netherlands for business trip, but wanted to check the city of Amsterdam with short time. So I chose to join this tour and it was a good tour to get to know the city quickly. I saw outside of Anne Frank’s house and there was a long que around there. Although I did not have time to visit there, I recommend this tour especially for busy people or people who would like to know first the city itself. There is an audio tour guide with various languages and that was very helpful.

It's perfect for those with tight schedule or when you are on a business trip.
There is an audio guide with earphones on boards.
Audio guide was in English and many other language, but not in Japanese, which was a bit disappointing.
The weather was not very good, so it was great I could see Amsterdam from the boat with a roof. I would definitely recommend this tour. Tour meeting point is about 5 min walk from the main train station, when you cross the bridge you will see it right away.
Along the way I saw a very long queue... It turned out to be a queue to Anne Frank's house... I've heard that it's very popular but it was a first time I saw a queue like this in the Netherlands. As my boat passed by I thought that I would like to go there one day.
Later I regretted that I didn't buy any souvenir at a small shop by the pier.

A great trip

Reviewed by: Sharon, 2015/08/22

My husband and I signed up for the Amsterday canal cruise in Amsterdam and was a really good experience. The trip was well narrated and very informative, and was helpful for anyone who is visiting this amazing city for the first time. The canals itself is so gorgeous, and the waters relatively clean. It almost reminds me of taking a ride with a gondola in Venice without the smell of the canals. Our trip was not crowded and there was plenty of seating for everyone. Our captain was very friendly and helpful, adding additional info points on the trip to the base audio recording. Overall, I would highly recommend this for anyone visiting Amsterdam.

Must Do in Amsterdam

Reviewed by: Andy, 2015/08/22

I always heard from my friends that a Canal boat tour was a must do in Amsterdam...and they are absolutely correct. Once we landed in Amsterdam, the first thing we did the following day was a Canal boat tour. It was well narrated and gave us a good idea of the history of Amsterdam as well as the many sites. This helped us orient ourselves on the following days as we traveled around the city. We also just happen to be here during the big SAIL event, so there were plenty of amazing ships around. Our captain actually kept us out on the canal for as long as he could to give us extra time to view the many tall ships that was visiting!
