We went on a canal cruise during our visit to Amsterdam and it was totally worth it; though I recommend taking one on a smaller boat, rather than those big ones.

Overcrowded cruise; the audio is not clear / not paced with boat - so more often than not we could not relate to the sight being referred to in the limited time. Wait times high. Cruise seems overpriced for the scope offered

Took an hour long tour in the early evening which was a fun way to take in the city and get a feel for the atmosphere along the canals. Commentary was provided and plenty of opportunity to take photos, sit back and relax.

200 bridges across the spider web like cannels had different designs. Saw one with openable halfs. Cruise supply audio guide telling history and features of nearby passing buildings are knowledgable. Some cruise offer wine, beer and pizzer, but with different prices.

Ok, it was the first thing I did when I arrived so I didn’t actually shop around. I pretty much paid the premium price but no regrets. Lots of boats seem to leave from the Central Station area so have a look around. I think...More

In May there are numerous open cruises. Many last into evening hours. Book as you wound normally with open boat company. Use effort to get timing right for your needs.
