It was a nice boat trip with plenty of information. View can be somewhat limited due to the roof and windows, particularly if sitting towards the aisle. Voice computer for multilingual explanations needed to be restarted once. But the captain provided lots of information in the meantime, and did also provide additional information thourhout the trip. The boat had a comfortable standard, with toilet as well. Rain protection was given. The roof is open during dry weather.

It was enjoyable. The staff was awesome. Very friendly and accommodating. If you want good pictures, you must have a seat next to an open window. Otherwise, all the bars surrounding windows get in the way of good photo opportunities. We went on a warm sunny day and the sun was beating down on us. It started to get uncomfortable. Bring a hat if it’s sunny.

Well done route, captain - SUPER! It is very welcoming and friendly, which lifts the mood and the series of houses of wonderful architecture seems even more beautiful and leaves just a fabulous impression of Amsterdam. Ron and Nel in the form of a cheerful dialogue told interesting stories about Amsterdam and its inhabitants. Loved the tour and attractive price
