    Amazing experience

    Vusiting the Rijksmuseum was an unforgettable experience.. seeing all the artwork including The Night watch by Rembrandt and Vermeer's Milkmaid and of course Van Goghs self portrait and Waterloo was incredible, not to mention all the other glorious artworks and exhibitions. The boat ride was very interesting and beautiful as well..the captain gave his takeout on the city's landscape and architecture with a delightful humor. I will definitely come back to AMS and hopefully next time will be with a partner to enjoy a bicycle ride as well.

    The boat was equipped with headphones and you select your language. Poor quality, cut out often, and the staff seemed bored with the whole process.

    Cruise/museum ticket not worth the money

    We were very disappointed in the cruise. The pre recorded audio tried to be entertaining but it wasn't nor was it very informative. We had a bunch of rowdy kids on our cruise which didn't help. The ticketing process to get into the Rijksmuseum was very confusing and there were still several long lines we had to stand in. The museum itself is amazing but now sure purchasing the "skip the line" ticket helped much.

    A nice, mellow cruise along the canals with a final stop at the museum, where you wander on your own. Relatively inexpensive, well worth the money.

    Finding the correct boat line was a bit of a challenge in an unfamiliar city, but our canal tour was relaxing and informative, and the museum amazing. Well worth doing!

    We did the canal cruise upon arriving on an overnight flight exhausted and confused, the canal cruise was perfect for overview a nice relaxing moment. It gave us a really good orientation with how to proceed with our vacation. Skip the line tickets for Rijks was a MUST. We saved so much time!! Highly recommend this or any with additional skip the line tickets!

    Tour was great, museum was great, but I didn't realize I had to pick up my vouchers at a certain location. So, when I got to the museum, I had to pay for tickets anyway. Moral of the story, read and understand the small print.

    Did not have a great experience with this skip-the-line tour first, it was not clear from the voucher that we needed to go to the tour company to get our Rijksmuseum ticket. It says that the voucher will be accepted as a ticket, but the museum did not accept it. Big waste of time to then go over to the tour operator, get the ticket, and then you still have to wait in line to actually get into the museum-- all you bypass is the ticket line which is pointless, because you still have to pick the ticket up. The museum itself is phenomenal, and the canal cruise was great too, just be aware that you have to book your canal cruise time as well, you cannot just walk up and present your voucher and hop on a boat.
