We celebrated the birthday of my elderly father with 8 people on this comfortable boat and were accompanied in a very pleasant and sympathetic way by skipper Ilija, who also told us nicely about the Zaan region. Definitely recommended!

Very nice and relaxed tour on a beautiful boat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and could tell us all about the region, the history and of course about the mills. All in all, a must if you're on

Had a super luxurious cruise, got nice information about the area. Definitely worth money. Nice area which looks very nice from the water. You can't see all of this from the shore. A big ten.

The boat was right on time. The private tour tour was well organized. The guide provided clear information during the tourist route.

Great boat, nice trip, nice guide / captain. Worth repeating.
