Heel fijne namiddag gehad met een vriendin! Duidelijke uitleg in de video's, duidelijke instructies ter plekke, alsook een helpende hand van aanwezige medewerkers. Met behulp van een duidelijke kaart die beschikbaar is, hebben we langs de mooiste plekjes van Gent kunnen varen. Bedankt!

Toffe ervaring! Heel handig en duidelijk systeem, gaat heel vlot om zelf dmv de code kayaks en peddels op te halen. En de prijzen zijn een stuk lager dan in het centrum van de stad.

Leuke ervaring. Kost 2x minder as van naar den osteopaat te lopen!

Wir haben spontan bei Edville ein Kajak für 4 Stunden gemietet und waren rundum zufrieden mit dem freundlichen Kontakt und der Ausstattung. Gute Boote, Paddel, Schwimmwesten, wasserdichte Taschen und Wasserkarten mit Touren - alles super organisiert. Ein großartiges Erlebnis, die Stadt Gent vom Wasser aus zu erkunden.
