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!
This experience was truly magical! Rocco was a sweet, considerate, and funny man. There were very thoughtful touches, such as the selection of cheeses and snacks which we picked out as well as beautiful stories. We loved this canal tour and would recommend to any couples first or even fourth time in Amsterdam! Thank you :)
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.
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 didn’t really know what to expect but it was fabulous! Our guide was fun and keen to help us enjoy our trip. It was a hen do and she was very understanding/ responsive to our needs. Brilliant
