It was really a very nice tour with a great boat. The panes were cleaned shortly beforehand so that you had a great view. In addition, the guide was really funny and told interesting things. The Audi guide is available in different languages, the guide explains everything in English, which was not a problem for me personally.

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.
