This was a wonderful 45-minute canal tour of Alkmaar. Very enjoyable, and narrated in the language(s) of the people on board. Alkmaar is even more lovely as seen on the water. If you only do one thing in Alkmaar, choose this.
The 'grachtenrondvaart' that starts at the Mient, is a very enjoyable and above all informative tour of about an hour through the canals of Alkmaar. Alkmaar is a fortified city in which the surrounding waters play a big part. The tour is a feast because...More
It is so lovely to be on the water in the city of alkmaar! Pass all the bridges, have to bend over each time you pass one of them because They are so low...it’s great Fun! You also have a great view on the beautiful...More
This is a great tour, with some lovely houses to look at. The highlight though for us was going under so many low bridges. Some of them seemed impossibly low to get through and we really had to lie down! Great fun.

It's a nice and informative tour. Do first...More

The canal tour is a fun way to see the city center, buildings of interest and the big and smaller canals. Commentary is provided in different languages. Especially nice to do on a warm day (as it is an open boat without roof or cover)....More
This (no roof) boat goes in the canals around the old part of the city, it is very interesting and fun! There are several low bridges (from the middle age!) and you must go down with your head. Very interesting and cool to do!
I very much enjoyed this canal boat tour, it was a great chance to see Alkmaar from another perspective and get an overview of the town layout and highlights in 45min.
It was raining lightly when I went which made for low numbers but we...More
