cozy relaxed atmosphere on board and at the same time very helpful where necessary and a good guide who told a good story about The Hague in a natural way. The cooperation between the guide and the skipper was also coordinated. Highly recommended I myself grew up in The Hague in my youth in the 1950s and 1960s and now in recent years I have returned for a day.

Very informative. Friendly staff. We had actually booked an English-speaking tour through Get your guide, but there was a Dutch tour at the time. We were kindly allowed to sit directly with the captain, as he would have been able to translate into German. However, that was not necessary because we received a booklet with the most important points including a German description. You could easily shimmy along in connection with a few bits of Dutch. It was a very nice ride and we learned a lot.

Nice boat trip at 5 pm. Very enthusiastic lady as a guide and a calm and experienced skipper. The weather was dreary, too bad! We'll be back for sure. Booking via the site always gave us the choice of 11 am or 5 pm, strange? The boat that arrived in front of us didn't seem really full to us.
