  • Friendly owner. A tour boat aluminum and electric motor. A very good idea and not that expensive. A point of view of Amsterdam very nice. A bit far from downtown but doable pier on bike or on foot

  • The boats belonging to Canal Motorboats are fine and the people who rent them out are very friendly and helpful. They are also in a great location for a walk before or after you go out on the water!  more »

  • Great experience and great service too. The give you a boat with electric motor and you drive along the channels. The price is 50Е per hour which is fairly cheap if you in a boat with 6 - 8 people.
  • Fantastic experience. This is the best way to see Amsterdam. The location is ever so slightly out of the way but, if you make the trip, you won't be disappointed
  • BEST PLACE TO GO TO RENT A BOAT! Very nice staff. They treat you well and give you great tips on how to use your boat and view the city canals. Very friendly. We got a great motorboat. Got to see and enjoy all the canal sites. Maps included in deal. 5 STAR service. Go there. Cx.
  • Went here as an American Tourist. They speak great English. Great guys running a down to earth business. Good prices for the experience you get. Helped me understand the boating process and rules to the canal since I was a tourist. Gave me recommendations about places in the area. Cannot recommend this place enough. Truly a 5 star ecxperience
  • Great motorboat deal and a perfect way to see the city of Amsterdam. It is certainly an experience not had in other cities. It requires literally no boating experience. The owner shows you how to operate the boat within 5 minutes and then you're off on your own! It is very easy to learn and get the hang of. The prices are fair compared to other rental places and the owner and staff is super friendly. Definitely bring some sort of food and drinks to sit back and enjoy while sailing along the canals. 2-3 hours is plenty of time to see most of the canals. Rent it longer if you plan on docking the boat and visiting areas around where you dock.
