One of the most worthwhile and absolute must do on your Holland Bucket List is hiring a boat. The Netherlands is probably even prettier from the water. The hop-on-hop-off and other canal tour boats are all brilliant and a definite yes, but there is no comparison to cruising up and down the canals on a private boat.
What’s really awesome is that you don’t need a license to ride one of these. The entire procedure is effortless. You book by making a deposit online; activate (yes start!) your boat by sending a text message; unplug and go! It’s literally that easy.
Thank you Greenjoy for providing something so special to the public! We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided this will now be a regular thing and that every one of our visitors will experience it too. It was truly magical.
