The Lovers canal cruise offer a 1-hour tour of Amsterdam by boat. The boat travels along Amsterdam's many canals, while giving a description of the sites and history of Amsterdam. The guide is fairly interesting and provides some fun facts about the city. The information is presented through an audio recording in 4 languages, and the boat captain who spoke English on our tour.

The boat is fairly large, holding about 100 people. The boat's flat bottom, and the calmness of the canal waters make for a smooth ride. Most of the seating on the boat is indoors, although the top is entirely windows, many of which open. You sit on a bench at a table that fits 4-6 people.

The tour lasts for about 1 hour taking you through the harbor, an open lock, and several canals. Along the way, you see different styles of houses, including boat houses. One unique spot on the canal cruise is a point of view that allows you to see a never-ending row of bridges. Other than that, everything you see on the cruise you can also see by foot. The information provided by the guide is what makes it interesting.
