Having spent several days in Netherlands and taking a few canal cruises, this one was very average in comparison. We didn't see the boat prior to purchasing the tickets and didn't realize its an "all weather" boat with roof. The roof only opens down the...More

We took three different canal cruises during our holiday in Amsterdam and Utrecht, and loved every one of them. Rederij Shuttervaer was a very good choice in Utrecht, at a fair price for 50 minutes. It was an amazingly sunny day, and we enjoyed slowly...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

Must have experience if you visiting Utrecht. It’s in walking distance from Utrecht Central Station. Great Building and old wine cellars can be seen in this cruise. English and other language guidance is there. I went on last trip at 5pm in November. Cold and...More

A pleasant way to view the canals of Utrecht and to see some of the main sights. We took the 1.5 hour cruise that was a little long for my preference. The commentary is automated (Dutch and English on this cruise) with the boat driver...More

Taking this boat tour was one of the first things we did when arriving in Utrecht. It was nice to learn a bit about the city and to get different views of it from the canals than from the streets. We found it a good...More
