Because we were in the first group of that day, we almost had a private trip (total 4 people), wonderful! Add to that the beautiful weather and the peace and quiet on the water (it was early, that's why) and you understand that it really was a 'zen moment'. In addition to the information via the wristband, the guide also gave all kinds of information and answered our questions. What a beautiful city Haarlem is with a long, interesting history. This boat trip is highly recommended, especially if you are unknown in the city like us.

The tour was great and Christine (guide) too !!!!

We can recommend this tour to everyone. This way you also get to places that you would probably not find on your own. It was a wonderful afternoon through the countryside and also a visit to the country house. Finally, a cool drink on the North Sea! Everything perfect!

Great fun learned a lot about the history of Haarlem both grandpa and grandma and the two grandchildren loved the leather

Best trip from the whole vacation!
