    What to Expect
    This 1-hour cruise departs regularly throughout the day, making it easy to fit into your sightseeing schedule. Begin near Centraal Station, and meet your seasoned skipper as you climb aboard a vessel run on solar energy.

    Take in unobstructed views from your open-air vessel. Your multi-lingual audio guide will provide you with informative commentary on the architecture and landmarks that you see along the way. Pass the merchants' houses, built during the 16th and 17th centuries. Learn why they were designed with narrow frontages and hear about their beautiful gables, some with carvings that depict the family crests and trades of the homeowners. 

    You'll also pass the Anne Frank House, as well as the Golden Bend district with its grand manor houses. Cruise under the city’s lovely bridges, including the Magere Brug, and glide alongside leafy banks and quaint houseboats.

    After a little over an hour, return sail to the departing dock, where your tour ends.

    I was surprised by the lack of narration. You received earphones, but the majority of the time was silent. The driver said a few things, but not much. I wouldn’t bother with this ride. Only good thing, wasn’t very costly. Very disappointing.

    We decided to hop on one of the lovers canal boats and by doing so enjoyed a great hour going around the many canals of Amsterdam. The price was reasonable, the boat was comfortable for an hour and the route was just fine. Box ticked...More

    The tour is an hour long, during which you pass through many canals. They are gorgeous of course, but from the water everything seems the same, the guide is not exciting at all (to say the least). Wouldn't do it again.

    Very good and was nice that the boat opened up for nice weather and was closed for bad weather so you could still go on the tour.

    Looks like you will just have to book a company on the day, as there doesn't seem to be any one to answer any questions!!! And for what happens if it's raining- book one with a full roof🙂
