"Super Nice experience"

It is a very pleasant boat ride, where you discover places from Amsterdam that I could not find out just by walking around. You hear interesting information about the places you're passing by. Boat was full, but we could see everything. I recommend this tour specially if you are visiting Amsterdam during the winter (nice place to warm up a little). Not expensive, it is worth the ticket price.
