    The guides are adorable. Polite, funny, and they do their best to engage all the people on the boat. The cheese with mustard was an unexpected combination, and it was delicious. Wine was good. The boat itself however… the windows are scratched so hard you can merely see anything outside! And the windows are so small! I was watching the newer boats floating around with a fair amount of jealousy. Well, at least it was quite warm inside.

    We experienced little bit of confusion about where the boat picked us up due to construction at the Anne Frank House, but a guide came around to show us where we needed to go with time to spare. The ride itself was quite relaxing and picturesque. The additional option of wine and cheese is a must, at only €10 don’t expect a huge selection of wines and cheeses, but the ones they provided were very good!

    Only reason 4 instead of 5 stars is that meeting place was unclear. Boats leave from the front and back of Anne Frank Museum. We almost missed our departure because we were unaware that this cruise left from the other canal. The cruise itself was informative, cheese and wine were good. It was interesting to see the city from another perspective.
