The best thing about the cruse is the audio guide, because it explains the stricture of the city from the water point of view. We enjoyed and understood a bit more Amsterdam.

Had a great time on the smaller salon style boat. Price included drinks and snacks. Worth the extra charge for a smaller boat

PRO'S: Water boats and the tram system are the way people move around the city of Amsterdam. The waterway boats are more for tourists and are a relaxing way to see sites in the city. Most canal boats have 24 hour on/off tickets that allow...More

I didn’t see any uncovered cruise company boats, but I saw some private boats that appeared to be hired for use by tourists with the boat’s owner as captain.
