If you have already sailed the waters of Amsterdam or not, no matter. Now you have the opportunity to take an alternative route, from a local guide who is also passionate about it. You will learn more and take great photos from a very close distance and the captain will take care of it.

We had a private tour. We were the only guests on board. The helmsman told us that the foreign tourists are also not coming because of Covid. Very sorry. The tour was otherwise fine.
