Lovely journey along the inner canals of UtRecht. Captain Joel had a perfectly timed commentary on his tablet. Learned some interesting facts that you might otherwise not find out. Saw some great architecture too.

We took the last boat tour of the day at 5 pm. We were able to buy wine and cashews at a corner store, on the other side of the ticket office. The boat is simple, but the captains very friendly. I started listening to...More

The canal trip costs over 11 euros each for an hours trip and I think you would get as much out of a walk rather than on the boat. The part through the old part of Utrecht is interesting but this takes about 20 minutes,...More

It was a warm sunny day so we decided to do this. The boat, the captain and the company's overall performance were fine. It's just that a canal cruise in Utrecht by any company would not be very interesting. There was a recorded narrative in...More

I visited Utrecht for the first time in 2016 but did not go on any canal cruise. This time, when I was on my way to the hotel, I saw a cruise boat pass by (hotel located near a canal). The weather was fine. This...More

I only read TA reviews after doing this tour and I would think that comments from previous years have been “taken on board”. My tour had a pre recorded commentary in Dutch and English. It was clear and easy to understand. The windows were clean...More
