The tour takes about an hour, depending on how fast you go and the other traffic in the canals. You'll get a map... More

The trip around the center is really nice. Escpecially the part on the 'niewe gracht' shows Utrecht from a persective you wouldn't see otherwise. Be aware that the trip can be quite exhausting for the two people on the front seats (who are moving the boat), espacially if the boat is manned with 4 people.

After prepaying your rental fee plus a small guarantee, they let you go for a 90-120 minutes tour around the canals in Utrecht's city heart. Being with the maximum of 4 per bike, we started to sail south through... More

Granted, plowing along on a human powered boat at 30 degrees Celcius for two hours is not for the faint of heart, I discovered after indulging in this experience. But the scenery is really nice: you see Utrecht from a totally different perspective, with a lot of photo worthiness moments. Doing this on a warm day is best: your fellow... More
