Full description
Canal biking has been a top Amsterdam attraction since 1984. Paddle your way through the canals at your leisure and take the kids along for some great fun. They’re sure to enjoy the ride more than a standard Amsterdam canal cruise. Discover Amsterdam’s main attractions at your own pace, passing by many of the city’s historic buildings along the way. Choose a 1 or 1.5-hour rental and customize the route to your interests. See the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, the Skinny Bridge, and the Amstel River, as well as other attractions such as the Mint Tower, St. Nicholas Church, the Golden Bend, the Royal Palace, the National Monument, Albert Cuyp Market, and the old city gates. On a sunny day, nothing’s more fun than taking a pedal boat through Amsterdam.

You should definitely be fit for this activity, as it is very exhausting. The route could have been a little longer for us - we were finished in 60 instead of 90 minutes. A map with a route on the boat would have been nice because the paper map becomes illegible very quickly in the rain (alternatively, there is also a sign on the canal itself).

Had top experience!

Despite the fun activity, we had to wait a long time for the tickets. Because it was a sunny day, there was a long line at the entrance. Although we had a printed e-ticket and all information via e-mail on my phone, we had to wait in this line. I think that is a pity and unnecessary!

On line afspraak gemaakt. Het weer bleek nogal wisselvallig . De man op de Stadhouderskade vond het stoer dat ik met m'n 13 jarige kleinzoon toch ging varen. Kreeg gelijk 2 nood poncho's mee. Vaarkaart. Helaas we verdwaalden, kwamen 1 uur later terug. We waren de weg kwijt. De man zei , ach dat zijn ze hier wel vaker in Amsterdam. Kom maar en neem maar een drankje uit de koeling. Leuke sleutelhanger. Ik vroeg ik moet nog 1 uur bij betalen. wel nee man, het is goed zo. Super leuk onthaal en SERVICE van een gezellige Amsterdammer. Hij dacht natuurlijk die stakkers :-) Zo belangrijk is goed personeel. Hij maakte ook voor vertrek ook nog de natte bankjes keurig droog. Gewoon top !!
