I spent an amazing Saturday with friends in Amsterdam and we experienced a very fun sightseeing cruise with drinks. The crew was very friendly and helpful. It’s an experience which is fun, but also you get to know more about Amsterdam, it’s buildings and history. The boat was very clean and they had a different variety of drinks, like beer, wine, sodas. The best part that drinks are unlimited! :) I would recommed this experience for everyone who are visiting or even living in Amsterdam!
