The travel time in your quote gives a fair estimate. However with more than 75 km of canals and a speed limit of between 6 to 7.5 km per hour in the inner city and max. 12.5 km in the harbor area, travel times can vary. Some canals are one way and even traffic in the canals can be at times busy.

Let our multilingual captain ferry you to your destination with a touch of luxury. Indulge yourself in the drinks available for an extra fee from the onboard bar.
