The dinner is hosted by the skipper and a waitress on a traditional wooden canal boat, built over 100 years ago as a floating office for notaries to complete trading contracts. The welcome is warm and includes a glass of Prosecco while selecting from a short menu that is basically fish, meat or veg based. This is provided by a local restaurant and is good quality, better than that on other larger canal boats, though it's not great

When you arrive, you choose to be in the front cabin with the skipper, that has 4 two-person tables, or the rear which has more space. It's best to be in the front as the skipper turns round from time-to-time, to give information about the city and its history, prompted by the moving scenery

This tour is about 30% more expensive than others, and that is worthwhile especially if you are a couple or a small group of 3 or 4 people. The food is better and the feeling is more personal than the larger tours

Well, we purchased the deluxe cruise which included a glass of champaign and chocolates. I was worried after reading other reviews on here. I must admit, we had a good time, we sat in the front of the boat, so we were able to speak to the captain, and he was a well of knowledge about the history and structures of Amsterdam. The food was good, the entree could've been served a little hotter, but it was tasty. I would recommend this cruise if you are looking for a nice meal and a cruise around the canal at night.

We had booked a tour on a chilly December night, and loved the little cruise from the start. We were met by a glass of bubbels and shown our little table set with whilte linen and silver.The lighted bridges and fantastic atmosphere on board made this an unforgettable experience. Not to mention the food directly brought on board from a gourmet restaurant. What a great idea to do things this way!
We think that this must be an experience for adults only, since the boat is small and the setting is romantic.

We had some issues with the reservation process, but the company was very quick in resolving them.

The cruise itself was excellent, very cosy and pleasant. The food was very nice and the service was attentive.

This isn't the cheapest cruise around, but I'd say it's worth it.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I thought this would be the perfect birthday celebration. We were met by the captain as we boarded and given our choice of the remaining tables. We chose one of the two in the fromt. It was perfect for listening to the Captain and asking questions. Our server, Mireille, could not have been nicer or more efficient. We both tried different items and all were excellent from the smoked salmon and duck confit salads to the angus beef or fish to the chocolate and the cheese. The wine selection was not large but more than adequate, in fact we had a bottle of the house white and a glass of the red.
Thsi was a pefect farewell to a wonderful trip.
