A weekend in Amsterdam

I thought I’d write up this quick post to recommend a tour we done on a recent trip to Amsterdam, the tour is the Amsterdam Candlelight Cruise.

Although the 2 hour cruise was 37.50 euro each I consider it very good value for a city where a beer can cost 7.50. For our euros not only did we get a lovely 2 hour night cruise through the canals and some lovely cheese we also got unlimited wine, and when I say unlimited, yes it was unlimited, our glass was never empty and was continually topped up for the 2 hours.

We shared a table with another couple who kept to themselves and had their own cheese board, the view of Amsterdam out of the windows and glass canopy at night was stunning, the only con was the candles weren’t real candles but rather little flickering lights designed to look like candles, I’m guessing this is for safety reasons.

If you’re an alcohol drinker looking for a night out without paying 7.50 a drink all night, then I highly recommend starting your night out with this tour.

I’ll hopefully be writing more frequently now so feel free to follow my blog 🙂
