Private Canal Boat Ride

Forget about those infamous small white glass-ceiling boats with lots, and lots, of tourists. We highly recommend a tailor made experience, as private canal boat rides can take you to the very small canals only locals know about and make stops at excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner. There are private tours where in-vessel food service is offered. We suggest an evening ride in a charming small wooden boat will be particularly beautiful and memorable, not to mention romantic, if you should be so inclined. There are plenty of companies offering private tours and we suggest booking through your hotel (some have their own boats), since they will know which companies operate closest to you. However, if you would like to have the same great experience we did, try Jewel Cruises

Jewel usually picks you up somewhere near your hotel, so contact them for arrangements.
