What people are saying about Haarlem

Pleasant, fun guide. We were lucky enough to be on board with only Dutch speakers. In this way the guide did not have to change language every time and he could tell a little more than the essential. Interesting to start the stay in Haarlem with this.

The tour was fun and interesting! The captain had a lot to tell and gave context to everything to make the image. Have a nice drink and have a look around.

It is best to take the cruise first and then visit the city. The explanation on the cruise provides inspiration for the best places to visit.
