It was really fun to travel ourselves, we could go where we wanted and have fun just the 2 of us. The boat was fast enough to me (for a boat that we can rent without a licence). I recommend to take at least 2...More

The guys were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They got us sorted and on the canal within 10 minutes and warmly greeted us upon return. Definitely recommend this company for boat rental

I would recommend them firstly because of the customer service. We rented 3 boats and it rained like crazy and they were willing to change the date and also refund us for 1 boat as the next day fewer people joined. Hassle free experience!

We had a very relaxing canal trip made even more pleasurable but the great customer service we received at Canal motorboats.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
