We were welcomed on board by friendly staff. The ticket I had was from Groupon was included with a cup of coffee or tea (20EUR for 2 persons). The tour to Kinderdijk can be boring for some since the boat is moving very slow. This becomes clear when you see the rapid 'Waterbus' (a good alternative for going to Kinderdijk)... More

My husband and I were so excited to see the windmills near Rotterdam and thought a great way to tour them would be by boat through the canals. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the services, price and general disorganization of the tour and because of it had very little time to actually tour the spectacular windmills. THE BOAT TOUR The... More

This is a bit of a pricey boat ride to Kinderdijk (a small village where there are authentic Dutch windmills and a museum) and overall we were pretty disappointed. The windmills are definitely worth going to see. However, the boat tour (which should be fascinating) was boring as all get out. The boat is REALLY slow, the canned voice overseer... More

We went to Rotterdam to make this boattrip. We were sitting in the grass near the boat together with around 15 tourists from different countries waiting for departure at 12.00. No one came. A bit over 12 I phoned the company (telephonenumber is written on the boat). The man who answered me immediately told me that he tried to call... More

We took a boat ride with Rebus from Amsterdam to Kinderdijk to visit the world famous windmills. The trip last a little over an hour, and you can have a drink or snacks on the boat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The disappointing part was that you had only about an hour and a half to visit the... More

Lets get one thing straight; Kinderdijk is brilliant. Lets get another thing straight: this tour is the worst possible way to go there. We paid 14 EU each to go on the world's slowest boat to the World Heritage site. We couldn't drink our own bottled water in an attempt to force us to buy theirs, we were asked to... More

Dear Customer, I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad Experience with our Company. We've heard the complain more than once, that the time at Kinderdijk is a little bit short (1 Hour). That's why we changed our Program completly for 2014................ We'll only sail once a day (departure at 12.00 Hour - return at 16.00 Hour) By... More

This trip takes you to the Kinderdijk windmills which we visited largely due to a book entitled "The Greatest Places in the World". The trip was EUR 14 which cannot be argued with. The boat is comfortable and takes an hour each way to Kinderdijk with one hour in Kinderdijk itself. My main gripe is that one hour there is... More
