Amsterdam Canals Cruise Including Dinner and...
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

My husband and I along with our friends have done many dinner cruises over the years and unfortunately, this one was not up to par. The tour itself was very good but the food was below expectations. If we were to do it again, we'd book the 'booze cruise' - the canal tours with wine/beer and later go out for dinner.

Wasn't expecting very good food. Wow, was I surprised. Decent wine and plenty of it. The bread and chutney was pleasant. The pheasant was excellent. Once you've seen Amsterdam you've aren't going to see anything new. I definitely would recommend this dinner cruise for first timers.

A canal boat is transformed into an upscale restaurant with table linens and crystal, soft music, gorgeous views of a brilliantly-lit Amsterdam. The food is prepared onboard and is gourmet quality. Champagne and wine is offered and each course is described as to ingredients and preparation. Each course was more delicious than the last. I chose the beef entree and it was succulent and perfectly prepared and presented. A truly lovely experience all around.

A good way to see the city and provides lots of photo opportunities
The only downside is the the pre recorded information it given in about five languages and as they were delivered in sequence it limited the amount of information that could be delivered.

It would have been improved it the boat had been equipped with and option to access your language via headphones.

Nonetheless it is worth doing

We got on the canal boat by virtue of a ticket on the Hoponhopoffamsterdam red bus which for a slight additional fee of 9 euros included the canal cruise. The bus was fine and stopped at all of the sights we wanted to see. Some of the buses had a live narrator, some didn't but they all had headsets and tapes which worked just fine. We found these tourist buses to be a good way to see the city in a short period of time. If we had bought our bus ticket at Lover's canal boat office we would have saved a lot of money because the owner had negotiated some really good prices for the museums.
