We enjoyed the apple pie and the coffee served. Unfortunately we could not hear the comments of the speaker because the sound was very bad. The view was very nice though. The sanitary Covid measures were also not be taken seriously.

In a city renowned for its waterways, a canal cruise is a must when visiting Haarlem.
Online booking was easy, although there were plenty of spare seats for people who hadn't booked.
The staff in the office and on board were friendly and knowledgeable.
The route is interesting and takes you past Haarlem's main sights- commentary is provided in English and Dutch, though was quite brief rather than giving an in depth account.
50 minutes is an ideal amount of time as you can see the city centre whilst not being on-board for too long.

This was my first tour in Harlem before my family and I explore the city.
Aside from going around the canal, there was no information in languages other than Dutch offered. Even the voice in Dutch was of the Old captain and passing through bad speakers.
Dear organizer, please have the information recorded in other languages and with a clear play back to make everyone happy

Beautiful weather and a fun boat trip.
Was not what we expected.
In addition, we found the entrance price far too expensive for what was offered.
