This activity will end right where it started.
Step aboard a glass-enclosed boat near Amsterdam Central Station for your evening canal cruise, and get settled in at a table. Your host serves a welcome drink of prosecco—after a long day of traveling or sightseeing, indulge in this opportunity to sit back, relax and sip your wine and nibble on the fine charcuterie board as you take in the sights.

Travel along through the city center and some of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, where historical bridges and windows are softly reflected in the water. Listen to live commentary on board about the landmarks and attractions you pass and enjoy unlimited wine, beer, and soft drinks while you sail.

The Golden Bend, a stretch of stately mansions, as well as the Herengracht, Amstel and Oudezijds canals, all drift within view. Admire the sight of Amsterdam’s 5-star Grand Hotel, lit up against the sky.

Glide past Oosterdok, the city’s eastern docks, before navigating back to the departure point, where your cruise ends.

A lovely ride
, Jun 2022
This is a nice ride through the canals. There is little narrative but a lot to see. I would have enjoyed hearing about the local cheese selections and the wines. They were generous with the wine pours.
Poor customer service
, May 2022
We had 8 people in our group, and they were not prepared for us! Much confusion (a real cluster f**k) in boarding and ended up at separate tables. Other than that, servers were friendly, accommodating, and fun. We had various and unlimited wine tastings, and the food was tasty and pleasingly presented on cloth-covered tables. The canal ride itself was lovely. This was our second aviator tour on this trip, and the other one also had our reservations incorrect. Better training needed at booking level. Or is this company made up of scammers? (The organizers and tour guide on the other trip were rude, disorganized, and disinterested in solving the reservation problem.) I may or may not give Viator another chance.
Wine and Cheese with a Canal Cruise Thrown in
, May 2022
I was really looking forward to the cruise since I wanted to hear all about the canals and the history. However there is more of an emphasis on the wine instead of the cruise.k. Lots of wine and lots of talking so that one really couldn't hear what was being said. If you want wine and cheese, go on the cruise. If you want to hear about the canals, go on a cruise without the wine.

Well worth the money. Endless wine. Friendly staff. Got a free bottle of Prosecco when they realised I had proposed.
A Wonderful Night Out

This was a great way to see the beauty of Amsterdam at night and have a romantic evening with my wife.
Great Value

A scenic tour accompanied by some historic facts and yummy snacks. Also a lovely glass of Prosecco followed by unlimited wine.
Great tour, poor service
, Aug 2019
Great cruise experience. Great Captain. Great Guide. Not so great Waiter. Once one waiter allocated to the entire cruise. He neglected us and we were not served well. The quality of the wines not great. The quality of the cheeses not great. In a nutshell, I would do this again for the scenery, but not for the food or the great service.
Is it really somethinhg what you expect?

Viator has the missleading system of reservation. If you book action you have to be really carefull if you get what you wanted. I wanted to have bureer cruise, without any announcment the refdirect yoiu to diffirent avtivity, which was cheese and wine. This is really not fair, when i recogniazed problem, i received information that rebooking of action is not possible. At the end, cruise is quite niec, with artifical candlelight, and small plate of cheese for entire 5 members family. Wine beer and softdrinks are avialable in free flow. Evening is truly ok, except amount of cheese, if this is what you wanted, I wanted burger cruise and If there is no such system like Viator offers, I would simly choose another day.Its a pity. It only gives lesson , please read carefulluy all offers which you get! Positive was very nice guide person!
Wonderful, romantic way to see the city and the canals
, Aug 2019
Would highly recommend the Candelight Canal cruise (with cheese and wine). Easy to find meeting place right beside Centraal station. Friendly, warm crew including guide and servers who really did their most to answer our questions and quench our thirst. Guide provided the right amount of information and was very interesting with his explaination of the city and canals. The candlelight setting and beautiful views of Amsterdam couldn’t be beaten in this experience.
Missed Wine and Cheese cruise
, Jul 2019
I paid almost $100 for this cruise and we were 5 minutes late and they left without us! We were so disappointed! Therefore, I have nothing to say about it, except I sure wish I could get my money back! We had a hard time getting a taxi over there! I feel they should have waited just a few minutes more!
Wine and cheese cruise
, Jun 2019
Very well done and worth the money. Done in English and Dutch, so understanding it was easy. Assortments of wine, cheese, crackers, and smoked meats were great and all you can handle. Great way to spend 2 hours. Nice thing is no photos or other cash generated sales placed on you.

Me, my husband and another couple, all seniors, were really looking forward to this evening canal cruise. The description sounded absolutely wonderful however we were underwhelmed. Before departing the dock, I decided to use the onboard WC, thinking sooner better than later. The dimly lit 3' x 4', if that, cubicle already stank. It probably had not been cleaned from earlier cruises during the day. Our tour operator, Rebecca, had limited knowledge of the sites on the tour. I knew as much as she knew, if not more, because of a bus tour we had taken on our first day. She would reference the right or left banks, but never clarified whose right or left. Rebecca frequently attempted humor to cover her lack of knowledge. It was apparent our party was not the sole group disappointed. Many around us stopped trying to listen to her and simply talked among themselves. A couple of tables close by could be heard commenting on her lack of knowledge and ability to indicate the appropriate side of the canal to view. The cruise provides unlimited wine and beer, however, the selected wines were not good. Perhaps they should consider offering an introductory freebie of a quality wine and charging full or discount for additional consumption.

Lots of fun, staff were great and the wine and cheese were plentiful. I had mentioned on the booking it was my wifes 30th and they set up a table at the frint of the boat. Nice touch.

Great Night time Canal Cruise
, Sep 2018
This tour is an outstanding event and bargain. You are welcomed onboard and are made to feel right at home. The narrator and captain are both excellent and provide a detailed journey through the canals of Amsterdam which are more beautiful at night. The plate of cheeses, salami etc; are very good and the continuous flow of wines throughout the cruise was much appreciated. Great service by the waiter/waitress in keeping glasses full. Highly recommended tour when in Amsterdam.
Great experience and the best personnel. Very kind, polite and friendly.

This cruise was enjoyable. The cheese and meat plate was good and the wine was plentiful. We sat at a table with another couple which was very nice. There was a tour guide that talked about the canals and the buildings along the way.
Candlelight Cruise
