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.

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.
