There is much more to Amsterdam than the city life. You absolutely have to explore the outskirts, a completely different environment only 20 minutes away from the city centre. Our guide was amazingly kind and answered all of our questions. We learned about all of Holland and much more! The tour is calm and so peaceful, either for beginners or... More

To learn how the Dutch reclaimed land, to observe diverse bird life and happy cows grazing on peat islands, to leisurely paddle through wetlands and enjoy a scrumptious lunch prepared by Majel Trump, the enthusiastic and so knowledgeable guide, make your reservations at Wetlands Safari early! For anyone interested in the natural environment and wanting to spend a day outside... More

A fascinating way to learn about the reclamation of land and culture of the country. Majel, the tour leader is a former geography teacher and full of information, plus just a darned nice lady. We canoed through canals and into the wetlands, learning about the country's commitment to the migrating birds. We got out and walked on a floating island.... More

This was such a great tour. My husband and I love to be on the water, in any kind of boat, and we felt right at home. Luckily the weather was gorgeous, and our guide was brilliant. The included lunch? Delicious. Everything about this tour was comfortable and just delightful. Good job wetland safari!!

Having spent most of our holiday in Amsterdam, this was a great addition to our trip to get the bigger picture of the Netherlands. I love being on the water anyway and exploring the canals by canoe was great. It introduced us to the wildlife, the locals and the geography of the Netherlands.

This was a fantastic guided tour of the waterways and reclaimed land in Watergang via canoe. We were very lucky and as were the only two people on the tour, so we ended up getting a private tour. The scenery was beautiful, spanning canals with houses, farmland, and woodlands along them. The canals are very narrow along most points, so... More
