We absolutely loved our tour with Willem- relaxed, friendly, informative and fun! Pitched just right, included places and stories we just would not have found on our own and lovely conversation - plus a great cafe recommendation to round off our morning. We thoroughly recommend the very personable Willem

This canal tour was excellent! The guide was very informative and witty. The tour provided headphones to listen to pre-recorded information about various parts of the canal. It was a beautiful evening which provided wonderful picture taking opportunities!

Excellent and well organised pub crawl. Hosts were great fun

Great captain, nice stroll of the city on the canal cruise
