Tour was the perfect amount of time. The audio guide in multiple languages was perfect as our tour had at least 6 different nationalities aboard.

We had a great canal trip. Our captain was so knowledgeable, my husband, myself and a friend basically got a personal commentary as we sat near the front and the balance of people were listening to headsets. it was a great cruise and a good way to see some of the sights.

Excellent tour if you want to see the Dutch Countryside. Saw lots of windmills, tasted cheese and rode a boat. The town Volendam is so peaceful and quiet, I can live there. Our tour guide Edgar was friendly, approachable and very knowledgable. Highly recommend this tour.

It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Nice to have headphones to hear the commentary with headphones--better than with speakers. Would recommend it
