    The tour with Majel was wonderful. With great canoeing weather, we were able to paddle along the beautiful route. Our guide told us a lot about the area and the water. Passing various animals, we took a break at a great place and were able to enjoy the atmosphere at the sunset with the very large and extensive picnic. I can only recommend the tour to everyone, it was unique. Thank you for the great experience!

    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.
