Tour de la ville magnifique au travers de ses canaux pour mieux capter l’univers de chaque quartier. La narration du pilote nous aide à en savoir plus sur les anecdotes de la ville.

Incredible experience. Our host did an excellent job sharing information about the city, canals, and culture of Amsterdam; witty and charming. Wine and cheese selections were fantastic as well. Overall one of the best experiences of our visit to The Netherlands.

This was awesome. We stumbled upon this experience randomly and it was way better than expected. This beats the main canal cruises by far because it's a much smaller group with some good information and views.
