Because of limited mobility in our party, this was a great way to see highlights, particularly those that were best viewed from canal routes. For the weary traveler, it was also relaxing and a nice break from nonstop backpacking. I appreciated the on-the-water perspective, and...More

I probably paid a little much at 16 euro for the one hour but the captain was informative with a sence of humor. Probably as good as any,there is a hop on and off one but i was happy with the hour

I do not recommend this tour. Pros: nice boat ride. Cons: recorded narration is atrocious, very poorly done. Assumes low level of audience intelligence, almost insultingly simplistic. Long periods of total silence when there could have been so many things that would be worthy of...More

Hi - has anyone gone on the 24 hour hop on hop off ticket? I was wondering whether the tickets are truly valid for a 24 hour period from time of first boarding (e.g., if I board at 2PM on Monday, is it valid through 2PM on Tuesday?), or if they just mean that the ticket is valid for the day only when it is first used.

We started are at 1pm and the next day we were still able to hop on hop off until 1pm! So it is actually for 24hrs!

Hi, Im a Holland pass user and will arrived AMS on Dec. Below are my few queries. Please help me. 1. How to take 1hr Canal Cruises? directly go to Prins Hendrikkade 25 to exchange the ticket and book the time? and queue? 2. Could you tell me the 1hr Canal Cruises pathway? It will start from Central station and return to Central station? or where is the end point? 3. Can I get off the cruise earlier at somewhere? (for instance Zevenbogenbruggengracht) or the Zevenbogenbruggengracht is the end point? 4. Allow eating (fries or drink) during the 1hr Canal Cruises? Above are my queries. Thank you so much for answering.
