    The package is a must do for those visiting Amsterdam for the first time! The RIJKSMUSEUM is an enriching experience. Seeing the familiar Rembrandt and Vermeer paintings in real life and appreciating the history and the stories behind them was a feast! The app providing an engaging background to the paintings was both educational and entertaining. Having a cloakroom where you can put your coat allows you to wonder around comfortably. We were fortunate as there were special exhibitions of the Clara, the white Rhino and the contemporary exhibition of the blooming flowers. The caffe has good food too. The boat tour is another unmissable treat! You can enjoy the well chosen music while listening the excellent guide or go out to take those magical shots of the romantic canals and bridges at night! The package is definitely value for money! Enjoy!

    The excellent museum is so big that it is a bit difficult to get around inside, so I recommend the audio guide. It is close to the city center. I recommend visiting it early in the morning, it is less crowded and so you can leave the afternoon to visit other sites.

    Easy to find departure point and the captain was very clear in her instructions before setting off on a great experience. Progress was smooth and clearly the person guiding the barge knew exactly what she was doing. Our only v slight criticism is that the pre-recorded audio guide via head phones was a bit brief. Otherwise a great experience.
