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. Majel was very knowledgeable and accommodating in... More

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

Absolutely great, or a least that is what I thought during the trip. Having looked at the photos afterwards, it was even better......

We went in June 2014. It was a delightful way to get out of Amsterdam for just a day, without a long trip. The outing was well organized and very relaxed. The paddling is easy and the scenery is lovely. Highly recommended.

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
