If you're looking for a more local experience, rather than a bigger group tour, this is perfect. It's great for seeing a different perspective of the city. Our kids (8 and 10) really enjoyed the boat as well.

Not the best nor the worst canal tour we’ve taken. During the off season on a rainy day, it was a dry way of touring the city and exploring the history. I felt it was a bit expensive for 1 hour but the driver was...More

Hello Lisa, we think there is a mix up! Utrechtcanalcruise has boat Staag, which is an open boat. Good to hear that you learned a lot, probable from our friends from Schuttevaer.

An excellent way to get your bearings of this beautiful city! We took the hour long tour which did a loop of the centre of the city. The captain was very informative speaking in Dutch and then in English. Would recommend!

Great location but commentary mainly in Dutch with some limited commentary in English - took the 90 minute cruise but would have been happy with the 60 minute one. Worth doing but room for improvementMore
