The best canal cruise of the several I have done on this trip to Europe. The open boat was beautiful and Jeroen not only handled it exceptionally well but his commentary (in English and Dutch) was interesting and informative with lots of suggestions of places to go/eat that only locals really know about. And because it was smaller than the large semi open cruisers it could enter so,e of the smaller and I think more interesting canals.

The tour guide, with the cool shades, was very knowledgable and knew a good lot about this gorgeous city. From the tall monuments to the recommend ice cream parlour, it was a great overall experience. After we had left, we bumped into him once more at the windmill restaurant,, he was lovely (once again) and left us with smiles. Highly recommend!!
