    Het succes is sterk Weerd afhankelijk. Bij wijlen is de drukte op die waterwegen toch wel wat benauwelijk maar het is meer dobberen dan varen. Goedkoop (9 Euro) en vriendelijke bediening. Ietwat trage registratie of inschrijven en daarom aangeraden de ticketten op voorhand te hebben. Goede historische uitleg al kan het wat meer en misschien ook wat meer in het Engels. Maar het voornaamste was toch goed uitgelegd.
