Die Tour war super. Unser Guide Moses hat sich bestens um uns gekümmert und während der Fahrt viel über die Niederlande und deren Bewohner erzählt. Bei der Bootsfahrt in Giethoorn hätte ich mir mehr Informationen vom Kapitän gewünscht, aber vielleicht gibt es auch nicht mehr über den Ort zu erzählen. Ein wenig mehr Zeit zur eigenen Verfügung in Zaanse Schans und Giethoorn wäre schön gewesen, aber dann wäre die Ankunft in Amsterdam viel später gewesen. Insgesamt war es ein schöner und lohnenswerte Ausflug. Vielen Dank an Moses.

It was very unfortunate that the weather was not good. Just rain. But we had a nice/nice guide and nice young people who traveled with us. Was very pleasant. Felt very comfortable. To be repeated.
