This is a pleasant 30 minute ride. The boat holds about 12 - there were 9 on our trip. The ride first goes thru a tree lined, 'quiet' section., then reverses and goes thru the Petite Venise area. The boatman gave commentary in French and English. It's a nice ride, but you go really slow and don't see much.

Warning - on a busy weekend day book in advance - lots of people being turned away for every boat. Super friendly staff really made the experience. Great value - children under 10 were free/ 6 euros for adults.

It was a nice boat ride with some facts about the areas. A lot of people as well be sure to get there before 10 to avoid the queque

It's only 6 euros per person and only lasts for half an hour but this is well worth doing. A beautiful little trip which is a little more quirky than the average boat trip! I'm glad we did this.

Once settled into the hotel, this was the first thing I had to do after arriving in Colmar. Not too long a wait - maybe 15 minutes. The ride was beautiful and fun! Our guide was very good and gave us the history of what we were passing by on the water. Not expensive, so a must do when in... More

There are two rides to choose from And this would be my choice. The other one passed us going both ways. We took it slow. Our guide spoke English French and German so everyone was able. Yo understand. Best six euros spent yet.

Short 30 minute ride in a rather small boat through the canals in Colmar. It gives you a much different perspective of the town. We speak very little French so the guide tried to accommodate us as much as possible but clearly this area is visited more by the French and Germans. It was fairly priced and would recommend taking... More

It was a lovel ride that gave us a different perspecive of this stunning town. I was worried about boarding the vessel but this was... More

We took a boat ride with Alex at Sweet Narcisse yesterday and we had a great experience. Alex was very friendly, accommodating and made the trip memorable. Highly recommended!

Took this river tour one Wednesday afternoon. The tour takes approximately 30 minutes and takes in arguably the most photogenic part of Colmar. Aiveen who guided us gave the tour in English, French and German which I thought was quite impressive. The tour cost €6 per adult which I thought was reasonable but there was an hour's wait so we...
