      We really enjoyed both the Museum and the Canal Cruise. The self guided tour in the museum meant that we could split up and spend as much time as we preferred at any exhibit. The ladies at the Canal Cruise were especially helpful as we sought directions to our next location. We only had one overnight in Amsterdam so it was important for us to be organised and for everything to happen on time, which it did. A really enjoyable trip,

      We found this tour to provide us with a scheduled entrance time for the Van Gogh Museum to be an excellent and orderly way to avoid the long lines of confused tourists! The canal cruise can be used any point in the day which extends the day’s flexible time table...just fit it in as you have 75 minutes in your day. The tour itself has a rather garbled commentary in English but,since there won’t be an exam, it was a nice accommodation, . Just a note on the Van Gogh museum, be sure to get the audio guide. It really will help negotiate you thru thr 3 floors of great material on Van Gogh.

      I didn't know that there are Canal Cruise and Van Gogh and Van Gogh and Canal Cruise not the same! I called Viotor, but could not help me. I wanted a 1 hr cruise in the evening at sunset, but I bought day cruise without knowing there were similar product. When I got to the Blue Boat, I explained and requested for evening hour. I was told I need to pay a few more euro for 1.5hr. No big deal. I was able to get the sunset time with paying the difference. I wan very grateful to the Blue Boat clerk at the counter for being flexible! The Canal Cruise is a must when you visit Amsterdam. Tram within the city was very slow and ended up spending only .5 hr at Van Gogh. So I can't say much about it. I enjoyed what I saw.

      Blue Boat is your worst nightmare in providing tickets for Van Gogh Museum. They had us going back and forth between museum and ticket office before we gained entrance. Would not recommend using them a ticket broker for Van Gogh.

      We bought tickets ahead of arrival through Viator, which we have done many times before. Makes the process so easy. We thoroughly enjoyed this museum and would go again. We were intrigued by Van Gogh's work. Also the canal cruise was easy to find and fun. You can't go to Amsterdam without going on a canal cruise.

      Great canal tour and museum. Be warned though that even if you buy these advanced Van Gogh tickets it does NOT mean you will get in. You still have to go early to the tourist office to reserve your time and if you don't they will and do run out of tickets. Prepaid or not!

      The tour was very enjoyable and it was lovely to see the canals and stunning buildings that line them. Only thing I would say was it lacked the authenticity of a real guide with a very cheesy audio guide. However, for a lovely trip along the canal, I'd recommend it.

      We only had a few hours to spend in Amsterdam and decided to give this tour a go.... and we are so glad we did! The canal cruise gave us a beautiful view of Amsterdam and the Van Gogh museum was a great way to end our day. Highly recommend this tour!
