Can I board with a wheelchair?
Unfortunately, the boats are not accessible for wheelchairs. It is always necessary to climb three steps in order to board and many of the jetties are only accessible by stairs. However, if it is possible to fold the wheelchair and you are able to manage some steps, you can board. For safety reasons, the aisle must be kept free of objects.
Am I allowed to take a dog onboard?
In principle, dogs are not allowed on board.
Is this tour suitable for all ages?
This tour is suitable for everyone. Children are welcome onboard and recieve a fun Amsterdam colouring or bingo.
