What you'll do

We will have an exclusive tour through the canals before the city comes alive. Discovering the stillness of the canals while enjoying the early morning fog, the singing birds and the beautiful morning sun. In the early morning the reflection of the houses are accentuated in the canal water, like a natural mirror creating a dreamlike reversed image of reality. A wonderful sensation. Me or my co-host Captain Theo will be your captain, host and guide and give you a totally unique perspective of the city in a beautiful all season fully electric saloon boat. Toilet on board. The boat is for any weather condition comfortable. We start the cruise by a minimum of 2 persons. Rain or shine! See you on board!
