Day Canal Cruise

Any preferences for a day canal cruise between Blue Boat Company and Rederij Kooij. We are at the Marriott and both seem to have stops close by. Or do you have to go to their main starting point in order to get the full hour or 75 minutes tour. Not interested in hop on hop off tour.

Many thanks for some insight on how they really operate; much appreciated.

man, just pick a boat ride...they are all basically the same

they are less than an hour long and you can walk wherever you

need to go after.

indeed, I think we'll just take the Kooj company since near our hotel. really just a way to get oriented.

excited by the weather forecast: historically in the 50s, but looks like could be in the 60s next week and maybe hit 70 degrees on Monday.

Weather forecasts are only (slightly) reliable about 2-3 days in advance.... but I hope you're right, though I have no idea what 70's is.

small correction, most about an hour..blue boats are 75 minutes due to where they embark near leidsplein.
