    A great tour with canoes through the small canals near Amsterdam. Just a few minutes by bus from the center of Amsterdam and you are in another world. You could tell the guide that she is doing her tour with all my heart and soul - that was really fun! The entire organization via the Internet worked without any problems.

    Die Tour mit Majel war wundervoll. Bei tollem Kanuwetter konnten wir die wunderschöne Route entlang paddeln, Unser Guide hat uns viel über die Gegend und das Wasser erzählt. Vorbei an diversen Tieren haben wir an einem tollen Platz Rast gemacht und uns bei dem sehr großen und ausgiebigen Picknick die Atmosphäre im Sonnenuntergang genießen können. Die Tour kann ich nur jedem empfehlen, es war einzigartig. Vielen Dank fuer das tolle Erlebnis!
