    Review for Pedal Boat Rental only- It's a good activity, but be prepared to have to receive absolutely no instructions when you get there. We were provided with a map that did not include canal numbers or route names, so we had to figure that out ourselves with our phone GPS and told to grab the boat and have fun. No clear instructions on how to use the boat, safety instructions or tips, how to undock it or anything. On our own but we winged it, it was all pretty straight forward. I expected at least some type of oversight by the dock to let me know I wasn't doing anything crazy. All in all it was a good time, it was just a bit stressful realizing that I would get charged if i got lost and ended up in the wrong dock turns out it would've been pretty easy if i hadn't had brought my phone with me.

    Good tour , we did this at 9am and no one was there. It is quite hard work so I wouldnt recommend it for unfit people

    Nice way to spend little time and look at the city from a different angle.

    Paddle boats were fun, but we still had to wait in the big line twice. Once to get the boat and again to get the 20 Euro deposit back. Having the ticket to Heineken did speed that up.

    Got a dodgy boat which kept filling up with water and the people running it werent helpful.

    Bad weather so we didn't end up using. I give it a three though because the advertisement states that the boats have covers. When I asked the counter person laughed at me, in a polite way.
