My partner and I had a great time on this tour. We took it at night and it was absolutely stunning. The hosts were so kind and helpful, they were also careful with not having too many people on the boat at once and keeping the distance between us due to COVID-19, which was a relief. I only wish it would have lasted even longer. Will definitely be doing again next time we come to Amsterdam!

Amazing experience! A great cultural immersion with the best guides we could ever imagined! Iris and Pim did such a great job that we already want to go back! Full of curiosities and a very pleasant and comfortable boat! I totally recommend it! Do it! You won’t regret!
