Josh picked this experience as one of his must do's in Amsterdam. It really is a must do. There were six people in the tour plus the guide. The guide was excellent, was very friendly and knwoledgable and ensured eveyones safety and went at a perfect pace (or should that be paddle?). A wonderful picnic was provoded.

We took the day time canoe safari with Majel. Our group had two adults, 2 teens, and a child. Majel split us into 2 canoes and we traveled through small canals in some charming residential areas and through the beautiful wetlands. Everyone in our group was fascinated! It was a good mix of just canoeing while enjoying the scenery and... More

Majel was a perfect host. our group of 9 took a short local bus ride to the countryside. after introductions and instruction over coffee (included) we... More

This is an amazing opportunity to see the smaller country life of Amsterdam and of the Netherlands. This is a perfect escape for the hustle and bustle of the museums and people in the city. Majel was also an excellent guide who showed up such interesting wildlife and rich culture of the village. Take advantage of this opportunity to see... More

We participated in the sunset tour and absolutely loved it. I took my two kids, ages 9 and 15, and it was a wonderful way to see the villages outside of Amsterdam and really learn about the area and how the land has been reclaimed from the water. Our group consisted of 10 people total, so it was a great... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to do something a little different in Holand and this was the perfect adventure. Be prepared to row for a while, but it is absolutely worth it. Our guide Majel, was a wonderful woman, full of information and laughs. The picnic we had was more than we had expected and was delicious! If you want... More

We read about this tour via Rick Steves. We scheduled the tour in the States and everything went according to plan. Marjel, our guide, met us at the Central Station Bus depot. The only amendment I might make to her directions were to go to the center of the station and go through the mall to the back of the... More

Anyone out there travelling with kids knows you need to give them a regular break from museums and this is a perfect activity. It gives everyone a chance to see what Netherlands is all about...waterways... as well as a great introduction to the abundant bird life. A bit of exercise to chase away jetlag is a bonus. I was with... More

We took our two teen daughters on the Sunset Safari a couple of weeks ago. What a pleasant and educational evening. This is a perfect way to end a summer day and to get out of he craziness of the city for awhile.

If you want to see the real side of Amsterdam away from coffee shops and red lights, this is the thing to do. It is perfect for small or large groups. The organizer Majel is a book of knowledge. She knows the place up side down and would explain every single thing with a big smile. The picnic was great... More
