Pontos indulás, szép látvány, mind nappal, mind estefelé. A kapitány többször szólt hozzánk, némi anekdotázással, kellemes előadásmóddal informált minket a környéken látható épületekkel kapcsolatban. Párszor meg is nevettetett minket. Sajna magyar guide nincs. Persze tele volt a hajó, nekünk sikerült portugál csajok társaságába kerülnünk, csiviteltek is rendesen :) Kicsit túlfűtötte a kapitány a fedélzetet, így én pólóban, míg mások nagykabátban ( :-) ) élvezték a hajókázást.

Complementary visit that allows you to discover Amsterdam differently

Pleasant guided walk on the canals (comments available in several languages). Too bad we were not given when boarding the map of the trip that was going to be done in order to better locate (unless it was we who did not see it at the entrance of the boat).

A mice relaxing trip on a quiet boat, with a charming captain adding some funny comments to the automated information. Only thing missing was some drinks on board. Don't understand they haven't thought of adding a fridge with some cans or PET bottles, you could buy for €1. Missed opportunity...
