Reviews

Fun activity for the whole family

The city tour is a very fun activity to do with the family. In one hour you sail through the canals of Groningen and get info on the different sights. The drinks were well taken care of. Definitely recommended! Not only for people outside the city of Groningen, but also as city dwellers we found it very fun.

Marlies van Gelder
Would recommend even to locals and residents!

"The perspective from the canal is very different and the history about sights you may have never even noticed before only makes the city more beautiful and interesting. "

Sanne from Renesse

Patrick Sommers

Susan Blom
Fun sail with good information

"For a weekend in Groningen, I would recommend to do this first. You get information about the things you 'must' see."

Herman van den Donker
Great experience

Nice to see Groningen from the water 👍.

Maarten van Es
Sightseeing from the canals of the city Groningen

Fun way to see more of the city and its surroundings! From the water :) Also suitable when it drizzles, which is nice in the Netherlands. All kinds of stories are told.

Very nice boat ride

"Really an enjoyable cruise around the canals where you have a different view of Groningen from the boat. The boat was comfortable with a glass roof, drinks and snacks available to purchase and a toilet on board.

David Horne
Fun cruise to discover Groningen

"During our city trip in Groningen we wanted to discover the city in a quiet way. From the only canal Groningen has, it's a great way to take a one-hour canal cruise with the canal company.
