Liad was a great guide and the food (and quick beer stop) was well worth the money! We left the tour totally stuffed and feeling like we had a very unique experience seeing Amsterdam through food. Liad provided a lot of knowledge not only about the food of Amsterdam, but some history / other good pieces of info that were very interesting. All around a great time and would definitely do it again.

Really good package, do the museum first as your time slot is for that rather than the boat. The boat leaves on the hour up until 6 pm so allow enough time to fit both in. Food and drinks not sold on the boat, so bring with you. Museum lunch was disappointing, small portions, a bit stale, overpriced but the actual museum was very interesting.

Good formula to combine the visit of the museum and the cruise on the canals but remember to book the schedule for the cruise because it is not possible to leave when you want because of the crowds

A museum that we visited one day in oluie and we were pleasantly surprised by the very beautiful collection.

The highlight of a day in Amsterdam! Nice guide made it a party :)
