What a wonderful way to see Amsterdam! We couldn’t have asked for a more delightful afternoon…floating through the canals, drinking wine and eating local cheese, and learning about the city’s history and culture. Our captain and guide was a gracious host! Highly recommended!

Brian knew so much and shared his knowledge generously. He could answer all our questions about his beautiful city. He served yummy cheese and wine, olives, tomatoes and pofertjes. He showed us historical maps, played local music and taught us some Dutch. All great!
