Audio Tour in English

Would you like to take a cruise on the canals of Amersfoort? Our guide speaks in Dutch. But with an app you get all information spoken in English  during the cruise. Use headphones or earplugs while listening (for sale in our shop for € 2.00). For now, this only applies to the western route.

To use the audio guide, the IZI travel app must be installed on the smartphone. The Amersfoort West canal cruise can be found in this app.

During the trip, English information is automatically provided when passing places of interest.

More information in our shop, where a folder with information and QR code is available.


Waterlijn reserves the right to cancel departures owing to unforeseen circumstances. This may be the case, for example, with extreme weather conditions or force majeure of a different nature.
