We landed in Amsterdam in the afternoon, checked into our hotel, and went on this 8pm cruise. It was just the right thing to hit the ground running to get a 1st impression of this incredible city. Especially this time of year when the Xmas lights are up! Was very cozy inside, nice to relax with a beer and some Gouda cheese snacks. Pure relaxation and enjoyment for 90 minutes, the perfect Welcome to Amsterdam I'd say.

This was a very nice trip. The sites were beautiful and the narration was excellent. We made a mistake thinking we were booking a dinner cruise but it was still enjoyable

With only 2 days in Amsterdam, the evening canal cruise really helped us maximize our time. The boat was cozy warm on a chilly night.

I have been on many day time canal cruises. It is a very interesting way to see and learn about Amsterdam. The night cruise was more beautiful than the day cruise. You get to see the inside of many buildings and houses that you wouldn’t see during the day. This is a 90 minute tour that should not be missed.

We had a wonderful trip on this comfortable boat around the canals in Amsterdam. Well worth the money and the table drinks service was great. Would easily do this again when returning to Amsterdam. Thank you.

This was our first night in Amsterdam and it was an excellent choice. A great way to learn more about Amsterdam and to get a good layout of the city. Highly recommend.

Easy access to get to the boat. Excellent way to see Amsterdam! Very good commentary and explanations from the audio. Boat skipper did an amazing job negotiating the canals. Definitely recommend. You can use your own headphones for the audio.

A great tour with explanations in our own language. Perfect sunset time (9pm) and the captain and staff (Keely) were great!

The only thing that could have made this better is if we would have gone one hour later and would have seen all the lights and colours of the night. The team was ver accomodating and helpful. Very good service on the boat. You are able to sit inside but also limited outside. We chose to be outside and it was really nice. Although we were not able to listen to the audio guide as there are no plugs outside we still had a wonderful time. Will do it again anytime. Blue boat company is the one to go with

We enjoyed it very much. The captain was very nice and he even kept in shape some guys who wanted to disrupt the tour. It was very detail and enjoyable. It is worth it

Lovely way to see Amsterdam. We were 5 minutes late and it was no problem for the lady to book us on the next boat. We really appreciated getting re booked. Would recommend this company to others.

If you time your cruise with the sunset (you can easily check online for sunset time the day you are looking to book), you are able to take in some of the trip taking in the beautiful hues of dusk, and then experience spectacular views of quaint neighborhoods as the city lights are illuminated and dance playfully on the canal waters. Clean boat and friendly staff. Pre-recorded audio tour included. Very reasonable price point. Opportunity to purchase drinks and snacks but not pressured to do so. Highly recommend!

I missed my evening cruise but Blue Boats allow me to take the morning cruise the next day. Nice cruise. Very accommadating people.
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
Very relaxing, informative, beautiful. We booked the 8:30pm cruise so it would be light out when we left and still experience the beauty of the city and canals after sundown. Would highly recommend. Good value for the money spent .

Loved this cruise! We went our first night in Amsterdam and got to see so much of the city- by boat! First drink was free but there is the option to buy additional beer/wine/sodas. In July/August, the sun sets later so we picked a later tour and were very glad we did because even at 10PM it was just getting dark.

We must have been on every canal in Amsterdam. It was beautiful with all the lights. Fun to see the city from another side.Great value. We really enjoyed our evening.

Going on the canal cruise in the evening was really lovely. I would highly recommend it because it was nice going in the evening with all the bright lights
• Submitted 14 Mar 2018
The canal cruise was a wonderful way to end a beautiful winter day in Amsterdam. We always try to take an Evening Cruise if available in each city we visit. The bridges are normally lit up and many times the beautiful buildings surrounding the water are also lit. Amsterdam was a magical city. Very walkable - even in the dead of winter.
