We arrived at the meeting point 15 minutes before our scheduled departure. 5 minutes after the scheduled departure I rang to ask where our boat was. The man on the phone was shocked that no one had been in contact with me that morning, and seemed to think his colleague had spoken to me. He said that someone would call me back, which they did around 5 minutes later to say they would see if they could sort something out for later. In the mean time the captains of 2 boats started swapping and adding bottles of,prosecco onto a boat. About 2 minutes later a man rang to say a boat was ready for us. I then got a call as we were getting on the boat to say we could have a boat for 2 1/2 hours later......lots of crossed wires. For the time that we had (under 1 1/2 hours)and the boat that we had, it was quite expensive. HOWEVER given that our driver took us last minute, and didn’t know he was giving us a tour he was BRILLIANT. We loved Hans, professional, extremely friendly, we LOVED him!
We all had a great time. Our guide Marnix was very knowledgeable and a really interesting guy. It was a lovely and relaxing experience cruising around the canals and learning about the city. The prosecco was aplenty, we were very well looked after. Great value for money, I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Our guide picked us up at our hotel for the walking tour. He gave us choices and went at our pace. We learned so much about the city and were able to navigate with some assurance after his tour. We asked questions about their way of life and felt that we got a real feel for the way of life in Amsterdam.
We had such a great time, our guide, Mona was absolutely brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful! Even stopped the boat so we could use a nearby loo! Would highly recommend this tour as a relaxed, friendly way to see the city. (The Prosecco and nibbles just helps it along nicely!)
We got picked up from our hotel, the guide was on time, we enjoyed this walk very much, we got to see many places and got lots of information and history, we covered many areas and did a canal cruise also, if you only have a short stay this is the best way to see the city.
