we went on the "Wetlands Safari Tour" through the Waterlands of Holland in a canoe. We were the only people on the tour that day because it was a Pentacost holiday. So, we boarded a canoe with our wonderful and informative guide, Majel. It was another beautiful day in the Netherlands and the scenery was so picture perfect it made... More

Just a beautiful and scenic canoe ride through canals and wetlands. Majel even e-mailed me to switch the Tour date due to the upcoming rain on our scheduled day. We're sure glad she did because we had perfect sunny day weather on our rescheduled Tour date. A real bargain for the price.

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!!
