Format: Paperback
This book is posibly one of the most complete guides to a country's waterways ever produced. The details about the navigation and the places you visit are crisp, sharp and most informative and clearly illustrated with pictures or diagrams.

This books practical and clear layout enables you to plan in advance where to go and as a handbook then to be kept aboard a boat will enable easy reference from where to find good restaurants or shopping to assistance with bridge openings and lock times etc.

This must have taken a huge effort to research and write and one can only praise the author's dedication to such a huge task.
This book will open the delights of Holland's waterways to all who buy it.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly and would recommend it to anyone planning a boating holiday in the Netherlands as it is filled with useful information, well illustrated and an enjoyable read.

I bought the book as we have rented a Penichette (barge) to cruise some of the South Holland Canals in August and were keen on planning our route in advance.

However, you will need more information than is provided in the book in planning a tour. Some information is provided as to bridge heights and opening and closing times (lunch closing times are frequently provided but not morning or evening opening and closing times)and not all bridge heights are provided.

Since I realize this information changes from time to time it would possibly have been easier for the writers to refer the reader to the appropriate (well-hidden) Rijkswater website pages where the current information is available on the internet.

More maps of canals would also have been appreciated, and please note that Amsterdam city canal toll charges are no longer applicable. Nevertheless the book is well worth the spend and provided many hours of entertainment.

I got this before our visit to the inland waterways last year. I'm really pleased with it - it's way better than the earlier guide we had.
It combines info about the waterways with more touristy stuff so it's well balanced. Strongly recommended

If you are English then this is the only book that really will give the necessary coverage for cruising in the Netherlands. From that point of view it's a 5 star. We have been using version one since 2010 and bought the new one looking for up dated information of which there certainly is some but not sure enough to make it worth spending £30 if you have a version one.

I'm interested in navigating through the dutch inland waterways. I expected more information about closed water bodies such as Ijselmeer and the Frisian lakes. Thw handbook is rather suited for small mortorboats going through the dutch canals.
