Boat tour is very nice, especially now during covid times. We were on a date on a Saturday afternoon during fall and had a very good time. Boats are of good quality, are easy to steer, and you are provided with cushions, blankets, a map and instructions. Service is very good as well. Highly recommended!

Excellent service - very nice staff. Boats are a very good size. Motors are a bit strange as they take some time to react. Location is a bit far from center but I think all the boat rental companies are similar Overall would definitely go back.

We had a fantastic experience with Canal Motorboats Amsterdam. The service was friendly and professional, and the boat was in good condition and easy to steer (after a bit of practice!). We were provided with a route map so that we knew which canals were one-way, and were able to get to the Amstel and back within the two hours.

We rented a green boat yesterday evening from Canal Motorboats and had a wonderful time, was great to see the city from another perspective. The booking was easy and the least expensive option we found in Amsterdam, the boat was ready to go when we arrived and the service friendly and good at explaining how to operate the boat. As others mention the boats are quite slow (though slightly faster than the other rental companies we found out when sailing the canals!) so I'd recommend at least 2 hours if you want to get a good overview of the main canals. If possible I would recommend renting on a weekday so there isn't as much boat traffic. We rented our boat in the late afternoon and the golden hour light and Fall leaves made it magical!
