This is a great boat trip. We always make use of it when we have friends visiting. Gives you a view of Zutphen from the water
We went on this cruise and the weather was beautiful. The volunteers are full of information and gave us commentary of the sights we passed. We saw old buildings and the many different birds along the way. Very peaceful way to spend an hour or...More
Not sure if they also do tours in a language other than Dutch but still well worth the visit. The trip takes about an hour and takes you almost entirely around the old city center of Zutphen. The guides are well motivated and each guide...More

Really enjoyed our trip on the whisper boat, even though it was all in Dutch we were supplied with an English guide book including photos. For 5.50 euros for 75 minutes it provided excellent value, well worth trying if in Zutphen for the day.

Zutphen is an ancient, medieval town on the river IJssel with lots of old buildings showing its rich past as a Hanzecity. Looking at them from a duck's eye view is a worthwhile experience.
Even having lived in Zutphen for a while, I really enjoyed it. Many interesting facts. The captain was wel informed and funny. All others in the group who attented the whisperboattour enjoyed it. So more that worth the " Excellent" rating.
