We enjoyed a lot the tour along the canals for visiting the light festival. The boat was small but very comfortable, with a covered part which can help you staying dry during a rainy evening as we experienced. Martin, the captain, was extremely friendly and...More

Nice tour with smaller, not the smallest, open boat. Skipper was good, funny guy. Comprehensive tour in smaller canals where bigger boats won't fit. Relaxing way to spend evening after long day walking.
