Private Canal Cruises offer the best price/quality in this segment

If you want to compare different providers offering private boat tours, take an honest look at all the additional costs.

Many providers state the prices excluding VAT, excluding tourist tax, have mandatory purchase of catering or you pay extra for extra persons onboard.
A lot of companies also add high booking fees when you actually book.

We have no hidden costs.

With Private Canal Cruises you only pay extra for your consumed drinks onboard.
