The canoe is fun, the proximity to Amsterdam is unbeatable. Learning about the nature reserve and the wetlands and paddling in the tiny village canals was amazing. If you are lucky you will see many birds and of course the cows! Majel is enthusiastic and fun, it definitely rubs off on you. You won't be able to help get excited... More

We took this tour 7 years ago and loved it so much that we had to do it again! We enjoyed our second time just as much as the first!! Majel is an excellent host and tour guide, with lots of information about the local environment. Take the tour, you'll be very happy you did!

We loved weaving through the little canals and duckung our heads to avoid the bridges! Our day was q little cold and included some showers, but we still had a great time. Our guide was warm and informative. She also provided us with ponchos.

We booked a sunset tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Meeting Majel at the station was easy and within 20 minutes, we seemed to be in another world! Canoeing under bridges and through narrow canals, passing quaint homes with clogs leaning against the back door, sneaking up on cows grazing along the canal, paddling past windmills, etc - In addition to...

We booked a Wetlands Safari Canoe trip on recommendation from a guide book and are so glad we did! The entire family (including our children ages 11 & 8) enjoyed the time on the water. The canoeing is easy and relaxing, the picnic is a ton of fun and the information we learned about The Netherlands is fascinating. Highly recommend!

Majel couldn't have been more enthusiastic or fun on Friday night's canoe trip. I met up with her and a young British couple at the Centraal Station, where we took a short bus trip to the starting point of the trip. Majel is an environmental studies graduate, and she imparted her deep love of the countryside along with Dutch history... More

Great time with a knowledgeable guide. Really liked seeing the countryside by boat, and getting information about the area. A very different way to experience the Netherlands. I highly recommend the trip.
