Van Gogh museum and canal tour

This is a great tour package for Amsterdam Light

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.

It was nice but not great the audio system did not work properly. Their needs to be a hands on talk not a pre recorded. Not sorry I went but the experience could have been a lot better.
