It was the most amazing tour for many reasons. I decided to propose to my partner on this cruise and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Rocco is an amazing guide who really knows how to create a romantic mood, with some songs, beautiful stories about people, the city and himself, it made for a magical time. He is a gifted storyteller and it was so lovely for him to share about himself as well. The view was beautiful. At night everything was calm and the lights shimmered, he pointed out the best bridges and spots for couples to be together. He let me play my own songs while proposing and had let me know where the most romantic place to do it was. We enjoyed ourselves so much and the magic of that night will be with us forever. Going on a private romantic tour of the amsterdam canals is a must for couples (or dates). We will be joining Rocco for another tour when we come back.

This museum is ultra-modern, using many new techniques to fully illustrate the history of the Netherlands through paintings, photographs, newsreels, interviews, films, etc.

Go to the Efteling for a lower price. Scan the code at the entrance, just like a normal ticket. Only downside is, that the ticket is valid for that specific day.

Great guide with great knowledge of Amsterdam history. The journey was relaxed and the atmosphere was great. Rocco is the best.

fastastische ervaring, met een nog meer fantastische gids, Rocco!
