This was a wonderful day trip, and an easy way to see a bit of the Dutch countryside. The canoeing was not at all strenuous and Majel was a friendly and patient tour guide. Definitely recommended for those who want to take a break and see a bit of life outside of the city. Picnic lunch included breads, cheeses, tapenades,... More

We (with husband and 10 yr old son) went on a Wetlands Safari tour in July last year and it was THE highlight of our Amsterdam vacation. Majel is a pro – booking the tour was easy; communication was smooth; she gave clear instructions. On the day of our tour, Majel was easy to spot in our meeting place with... More

We really enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the peace and quiet of the wetland canals; pleasantly different from busy Amsterdam. The canoeing was gentle and relaxing though narrow, wide and open canals between the moss and reed formed islands. Majel is very knowledgeable of the area; the history and the current working climate which benefits the people and the wildlife... More

Although the wind made paddling a bit of a challenge, we really enjoyed the canoe trip with Majel. The scenery was beautiful, and the picnic alongside the river was delicious. Majel is a terrific guide, who has the patience of a saint (some members of our group could not seem to figure out how to paddle a canoe).This is a... More

When you're weary of dodging bicycles and you just can't absorb one more priceless Rembrandt, give yourself a treat and book the Wetlands Safari canoe trip with Majel. Our small group of six set off in our canoes to paddle our way through the small canals in the countryside just outside Amsterdam. Majel explained the history of the canal system... More

Our group of 10+ people (all adults) got together in Amsterdam for a reunion weekend. We all enjoy the City of Amsterdam for its architecture, shopping, music, and museums. But we also love to go outdoor and enjoy the countryside. That is why we decided to spend an afternoon in the Great Amsterdam Outdoors (a.k.a. the Wetlands). Adding the Wetlands... More

I ended up being the only person on the trip, but it was lovely. It's nice to get out of the cities for awhile and the guide is fabulous. She has everything all ready. She even brought gloves, a hat and an extra sweater for me! We stopped for coffee before doing the canoe tour and she packed an amazing... More
