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 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More maps of canals would also have been appreciated, and please note that Amsterdam city canal toll charges are no longer applicable.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.

It combines info about the waterways with more touristy stuff so it's well balanced. Strongly recommended

This is a great book but it needs updating. I wanted it because I was planning on moving a boat I had purchased from Aalsmeer to Rotterdam. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Peter Bratton
Really useful and informative for our summer spent boating on the canals in the Netherlands - lots of additional
information about towns and where to moor - invaluable. Read more
