This canal trip took 1.5 hours and travelled many of the canals around the centre of Amsterdam. You could listen on headphones provided about the buildings and sites you were seeing along the way. We booked in advance and chose a covered cruise as wasn't sure what the weather would be like. However as the weather was good an open cruise would probably have been nicer. Good al the same though.

It is easy to find the boarding point and we had no difficulty in redeeming the tickets from the GetYourGuide voucher (which I had downloaded very conveniently on the app). The cruise left on time at 9 pm and it was beautiful, a unique experience made at sunset time. Remember to check the number of your language to listen to the tour commentary with headphones, we forgot to do it but there was also Italian!

Was a very relaxed atmosphere and audio available in different languages. We had booked the time for 8:30 p.m. and it was perfect, so to speak, we drove into the sunset from Amsterdam from 9 p.m. The captain was very friendly and amusing at the same time, and he shared even more knowledge with us
