On the whole it was excellent we arrived 20 minutes late due to traffic changes downdown. We were received graciously and my mother helped on board. The guide for the tour of the windmill did not show up but the boatdriver verified found out the guide was not coming waited for us and took us to continue to bus to garden. The Keukenhauf Garden was magnificent and lived up to our expectations in every way. They were the focal point of taking my mother to Amsterdam and were the best part of our trip!!

Excellent organization. The times to wait for latecomers are a bit long. Nonetheless, the day was pleasant. The very comfortable boat allows you to see very beautiful views of the countryside. Fantastic gardens
