our party of 4 had a wonderful evening on this canal dinner cruise
the tour was well presented by the staff giving details of different buildings and areas as we passed by.
we did not expect much regarding the dinner but were so pleasantly surprised that the food and service were outstanding - we had the sea bream and it was cooked to perfection.
we loved this tour

To celebrate our wedding anniversary we pre-booked the 3 hour evening Tour where dinner is cooked on board. This is a lovely way to see the city. The food was freshly prepared and was excellent as was the service. The driver was very informative and chatted to the diners about what they were seeing which kept the atmosphere very relaxed and enjoyable. Free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are served with the meal. Tables are separated slightly to accommodate parties of two. We had a lovely evening and I would definitely recommend this tour.
