" Great option "
4 out of 5 stars
I took the tour with my husband and four-year-old. It was great that it was only one hour because for little Kids more time would have been boring. The Pilot was funny and gave great information. Really satisfied.

Good moment on boat. Great to discover the city at first.
" Not valid ticket? "
4 out of 5 stars
As we went to harbourt to get onboard and showed our printed ticket they said it is not valid and we should contact the internet where we ordered the ticket. I was quite angry and said I specially ordered the ticket through the city tours cause I thought they are honest. Maybe that helped and we received the tickets. Maybe this was only an exceptional error in the Service. Luckily all went well. Tuija

" Nice Cruise "
4 out of 5 stars
Had a really nice time enjoying the cruise, Leon was a great driver and very helpful/caring. A nice way and relatively cheap to see the city on a sunny day from a different perspective.
" one hour well spent "
5 out of 5 stars
It's a great tour, it takes you around the canal for one hour shows the most important parts and monuments and gives some explanation. The audio tour was not my favourite but I just sit back and relaxed in the outdoor area chatted with my partner and saw the views. I recommend this tour.

It could be better if the boat returned by the same way, it could give the opportunity to all passengers having the same view.

" Private Boat "
4 out of 5 stars
We had a private boat on the canals, you can get a private boat for groups of more than 20 people I believe. The boat tour was rather short but everybody from our group had a nice time. The boat had large glass windows that could be opened for taking pictures.
