Like a real tourist enjoying the canals in Utrecht

Verry nice to see Utrecht and the Oudegracht from waterlevel. It looks really different if you see it from streetlevel. Very nice!

The canal cruise was okay, but nothing spectacular. I would say the canal cruise in Amsterdam was much better. There were some nice spots during the cruise but other than that it was quite boring. Our guide was, unfortunately, lifeless. She was monotonously spitting out rather dull facts and kept counting the bridges we passed. I was hoping for a... More

Nice to see Utrecht from a different perspective. Unfortunately, guide was sometimes difficult to understand in English. Glass was a bit scratched so views weren't amazing for taking pictures. Would be nice if roof could open as was stuffy. When u could understand the info it was interesting and the scenery was pretty

We were almost put off doing this by previous bad reviews, but decided to try it after another planned attraction was fully booked. It was a pleasant surprise: the captain was nice, and friendly. The guide gave the commentary in Dutch, and a more abbreviated commentary in English (which I did not object to as there were only two non-Dutch... More

We took the Nieuwe Gracht tour, a longer, more cosy tour. It should take 90 minutes but the captain did it within 75 minutes. The cd with comments he played did not work that way, either you missed the information or you missed the exact point to look at. Next time when we visit we will take another organisation to...

We booked this one hour canal cruise on a sunny summer day. The cruise was popular. Excellent commentary in English and Dutch was provided by the tour guide Roy. Unfortunately, the skipper made it more difficult to follow the commentary by shouting rude remarks to tourists who in his view came too close to the tour boat.

It worth a ride, 'cos it's charming. The captain is the guide himself, but the sound quality is very bad, so i could hardly hear.

We took the small boat inner city canal tour and it was a mixed result. It started with the tiny little ticket booth was impossible to find to buy the tickets although now we know it is actually conveniently located on the edge of the true centre where the market is and all the shops and cafes. Then the departure... More

I had an afternoon to myself in Utrecht and came across this by chance and decided to go for it. I enjoyed the trip which was very informative and quite relaxing. Guide speaks English, Dutch and German and provides some interesting information about Utrecht and its history.

We opted for the 90 minute, smaller boat canal cruise that took us to the older, smaller canals. It was a good way to get a sense of the layout of the city and identify things to go and see, Boat was quite uncrowded, maybe 12 people. But be aware that for most of the trip, at canal level you...
