Light Festival is beautiful, but you don't come to Amsterdam just to see the light festival. Amsterdam has so much to offer in the evening, illuminated canal houses, beautiful bridges, people who cycle home along the canals after a long day of work. We always try to share these experience with our guests. That is why we combine our award winning Experience with the highlights of the Light Festival, and this for one price. Two Hours cruising with Dutch snacks, unlimited drinks, wine, beer, soft drinks, hot chocolate, mulled wine, and real Dutch gin to keep you warm.
