Reply From Gray Line:
Hello David, 

We're sorry to hear that there were things left to be desired on your recent tour in Amsterdam. We certainly know that the best way to view this city is by water, and wish you would have left the experience with nothing but smiles! Please know however that there are certain restrictions to which canals ALL touring boats can go in (not just Gray Line), for reasons relating to both access restrictions and lack of maneuverability. We hope you did enjoy the canals we were able to tour, and that we can see you on another Gray Line tour in the future!

This great one-hour cruise takes you through the unique UNESCO World Heritage canal district and past the city’s most spectacular spots. As you glide through the historic city centre, feast your eyes on the elegant merchants’ houses dating from the Golden Age, the fabulous gables, famous towers and beautiful churches, the iconic ‘Magere Brug’ (Skinny Bridge) and many more highlights! During the cruise we offer a commentary in several languages.
