Apparently these boats operate under their own concept of time. Delays without explanation, always being told to wait “10 minutes longer” for over an hour

Dear Seaside65707054259, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. I'm sorry to hear you had to wait a little longer and didn't get an explanation. Our boats depart approximately every 30 minutes. Due to circumstances it's possible you have to wait slightly longer than usual. Hope you had a good time in Amsterdam anyway. Kind regards, Stromma Netherlands

This was such a nice way to view the city of Amsterdam. The captain of the boat was really friendly. We used the audio guides which notified us of everything we needed to see and take photos of. The boat was slowed down at all places where photos were best which was really good.

Aside from the fact that it was actually on water, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING worthwhile by taking this 60 minute canal cruise. They advertise "100 highlights"...i'm sure there must be somewhere in Amsterdam, but only 3 or 4 were even mentioned or visible while we cruised.

Dear Bestbyhamburgnj, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I'm not sure what you mean with only 3 or 4 were mentioned, since I've done the cruise and you here a lot of different things. Of course there are bigger and smaller highlights throughout the tour. For example you have the Anne Frank house, but also some fun facts about why some houses are so narrow. We do offer different prices on our website and in the shops as well. I'm sorry this wasn't the right cruise for you and I hope you still had a good time in the city. Kind regards, Stromma Netherlands

Took a round trip from the rijkmuseum stop. Saw all the sights. Commentary a bit cheesey. Was ‘free’ with iAmsterdam card and well worth the time. If paying I might get the hop on hop off ticket - though I suspect that in the summer it would be too crowded

As our first visit to Amsterdam this was a great way to see the highlights of the city from the canals. We booked online and opted for the open ticket so we weren't tied to a specific departure time as we weren't sure of our timings. After walking around all day it was great to
