This was a fantastic way to see the city in a different way. We had visited Amsterdam many times and this was just so much fun. The map is easy to follow if you keep track of where you are from the beginning. We saw many other boaters and swans and it was really nice that you can end at a different location than where where you start. That way you don't have to pedal the same way back. It was an adventure going under the small bridges and sharing the water with the bigger boats, but each watercraft was very respectful of our limited steering abilities. Next time we do this I would definitely bring a snack and something to drink. Great idea also for a bachelor party, or sport team cruise.

we got a pedalboat an paid 11 pound each for an hour and a half an paid a twenty euro deposit. It was a lot of fun but by the time the hour an a half rolled round we were nowhere near any of the docks. So we figured we paid our deposit so no matter what they were goin to take it for bein late - 4 hours later we returned it, we didn't have to speak to anyone an it was well worth it for all the sights we saw. There was hardly anyone else using them so we had a good run of them. The map route was impossible to follow but getting lost was all the fun. We almost ended up pedalling out to sea by accident an had to pedal really hard to fight the current back to the canals. Great experience, beautiful scenery and lots of nice houseboats. The price is great compared to rentin a motorboat an you can go at your own pace. Its also not too hard to pedal, we took turns pedalin while the other rolled a joint. We stopped to go to shops. Great fun.

We used this form of transport to make our own way to the IAMSTERDAM sign. At only 8 euros each for an hour it was well worth it and extremely fun. Easy and convinient.

Easy and Convenient. You can get on or off at any stop or just ride it back to where you began. We got off and had lunch and toured the city and hoped back on for another ride. As you are riding there is a recorded navigator telling you about the city and the buildings. The boats have a small bathroom on board. The boats are kept very clean. There are 3 boat lines you can ride... Red, Blue and Green. Try to ride each one because each line takes you to view a different part of the city. Bring your camera because this is a beautiful city.

We had one day in Amsterdam when our cruise ship docked on the way back to England. We have two children aged 12 and 13. I'd already emailed this company with some questions and had got prompt, helpful replies. We picked up the canal bike at Westerkerk. It was 28 Euros for four people for an hour. We also paid a 20 Euro deposit. The prices are discounted if you hire before 12 noon but you can't have the discount if there are four of you as that price is already discounted. You get a little map and guide book which looked useful although we didn't really follow any of the given routes!

The cashier answered our questions, was friendly and spoke at least 3 languages fluently! We spent a pleasant hour and met very little traffic on the canals. It was a lovely sunny day and our children, who did not peddle!, enjoyed looking at the city from a slightly different perspective. We dropped the "bike" back near Leidseplein and our deposit was promptly returned.

Hassle free fun we thought!
