A great way to learn about Amsterdam. The guide is very informative and interesting. The price is not the best among them all but I did try others so cant tell about the differences in quality. It takes 18 Euro for 1 adult. Last around 1 hour

For a mid-day early afternoon in February it seemed quite busy and we had to forego one boat because it was full, fortunately they go every 20 minutes. It is quite warm on the boat, and make sure you bring some water. And there is a loo so don't worry about drinking too much water. They offer a free headset,... More

It's used to be the location of Holland International. Canal cruise is one thing you must do as a tourist in Amsterdam. Good service, audiotour is available in many languages. I always bring my guests doing this activity.

2nd timw we've done the dinner cruise here, food was exceptional; as were the views at night, drinks filled up plenty of times, would recommend this for couples.

Took two cruises with Gray Line. A Two and a half hour dinner cruise at night and a daytime one hour sight seeing tour. Both superb. Dinner was excellent and made even better by being at the time of the Amsterdam Festival of Light. The daytime tour compliments the night time cruise by having good commentary and being able to...

The winter lights festival at night was amazing to view from the water, but I would definitely go on a closed boat, rather than an open air boat! The blankets were thin and there wasn't enough hot mulled wine to last the whole hour and fifteen minutes. The lights were incredible and it was much better than the walking tour!

We took the night cruise and it was lovely. Very romantic to see the bridges lit up. We took the Hop on Hop off Cruise the next day and really enjoyed it too. Excellent value for both.

We had a great evening cruising the Canals, seeing the light festival and enjoying a lovely four course dinner. Staff were great and the whole trip well organised and executed. We enjoyed the quirky commentary from our hosts, and would definitely recommend as a special night out in a special city.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
