What a wonderful firm, I’d highly recommend Stiphout on the strength of my experience. They offer a handful of cruises (& land tours), mine was the 50 minute cruise on the Mass. The company is long & well established & it was immediately apparent it was a quality operation. We were greeted by a crisply dressed man in naval type attire, with all staff members similarly dressed. Everyone was extremely polite & professional but also friendly, with plenty of banter as we boarded. The boat is immaculate & beautifully kept. A drinks service is offered, with waiters coming to you for your order. Light snacks are also available & prices are reasonable. Lunch & dinner is offered on some itineraries. Whichever trip you choose, it is a brilliant & leisurely way to see both aspects either side of the water & to get orientated with gorgeous Maastricht.

Very disappointing trip. Shown to a seat outside by crew member as sunny day . Was looking forward to commentary and wind of river to cool us down. Other people shown to seats around us . 5 minutes into trip told to move inside as social distancing not in place! Very annoying as ended up sitting inside on hot day and only passengers asked to move despite being first ones there! Crew member not listening when we tried to explain. Completely spoilt our trip. No sanitiser or measures in place due to Covid and pointless moving 2 people when others closer together .

We had an arranged boat trip with drinks and champagne and a wonderful guide who gave us a nice narration as we tour the city by boat. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day but it will still overall such a nice experience.

We had an evening to spend in Maastricht and took the Rederij Stiphout Saturday Night Dinner Cruise. It is necessary to reserve ahead for the dinner cruise to get your name on the list, and then to buy your tickets at the Ticket Office down by the dock on the day of the cruise. The instructions (and the location) were a little unclear (in Dutch, which we don't read) but we got ourselves down to the dock, confirmed which boat we would be taking, and waited in a restaurant across the road for the Ticket Office to open. We needn't have worried. We were on the list. The Ticket Office opened in good time, we got our tickets, and were welcomed onto the boat which sailed at 7:30 p.m. The whole night was lovely. The interior of the boat was very nice, bright, clean and sparkling. The drinks service was excellent, and the dinner was good. The starter, beef carpaccio, was delicious, but the rest of the meal was a bit of a let down. We had to line up when the steward called our table, and we were served by staff from buffet style steam tables. Anyone who lined up before their allowed time was asked to go and sit down again. It was all a bit crude. The food was plentiful and filling, and overall, it was alright but not great. On the night that we were there, the staff weren't quite sure what was in the food that they were serving, so if you have any allergies you'll need to be on high alert. Dessert that night was an offering of three sweets, and all were very nice. The night of our cruise was damp and cold so we didn't take the opportunity to go and stand outside. There was a steady stream of smokers going outside to light up though; we were grateful that they weren't smoking inside. The Rederij Stiphout River Dinner Cruise was a very pleasant night out. Recommended.

I love a boat trip and I really enjoyed this one. It was a lovely day so we went on the top deck. Enjoyed the waiter service on board. Informative tour over the commentary. Recommend!
