    Boat was fairly full and started a few minutes late, but once started it was great. Wine flowed early on and the cheese was good. Julia and Bas were great hosts. The meeting point is NOT in front of the Anne Frank house as directed, it is behind it near the Keizergracht just north of the homomonument. Would definitely go again!

    The cruise was amazing, we saw Amsterdam in the lights of sunset. The cheese is great and you have a variety of drinks available (all types of wines,sodas and beer) for you. The captain and the host were amazing, told so many good stories about the city and the canals.highly recommend the tour close to sunset as you can see the city light up.

    A fun ride on a beautiful new electric boat. There was also wine and other drinks (Coke, Fanta, Sprite, water, beer, etc.) and two types of cheese with mustard. The round lasted the specified 75 minutes and you saw a lot. Definitely recommended for the money! But be sure to reserve two or three days in advance
