THE LOCATIONS FOR A TRADITIONAL CANAL CRUISE ON A LARGE TOUR BOAT

UNLIMITED CANAL CRUISING ON A LARGE TOUR BOAT: THE HOP ON – HOP OFF BOATS

The duration of a traditional canal cruise is fixed and you cannot get on and off during the tour. If you prefer to have some more flexibility, then have a look at the Hop on – Hop off canal tours. Their boats are similar, they also have a captain and they also go fixed routes. But you can use them all day long and hop on and off as often as you like.
