It was the most amazing tour for many reasons. I decided to propose to my partner on this cruise and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Rocco is an amazing guide who really knows how to create a romantic mood, with some songs, beautiful stories about people, the city and himself, it made for a magical time. He is a gifted storyteller and it was so lovely for him to share about himself as well. The view was beautiful. At night everything was calm and the lights shimmered, he pointed out the best bridges and spots for couples to be together. He let me play my own songs while proposing and had let me know where the most romantic place to do it was. We enjoyed ourselves so much and the magic of that night will be with us forever. Going on a private romantic tour of the amsterdam canals is a must for couples (or dates). We will be joining Rocco for another tour when we come back.

It was amazing ! As a couple we enjoyed it a lot. It was the best moment of our trip in Amsterdam. It was very calm, relaxing, inspirational… The very kind guide play some romantic music, told lovely stories, and more but I’ll not told you everything, I don’t want to ruin the surprise. It was a perfect moment. The view on canals by night is totally different than by day. The light on the bridges make the water so beautiful. We recommend this activity to every couple (or not) who wants to spend a wonderful moment in Amsterdam.

Tämä risteily oli erinomaisen ihana ja hienosti järjestetty. Ei haitannut vesisadekaan tätä kokemusta. Vene oli hyvin suojattu ja lämmin. Tarjoilut olivat teemaan sopivat ja kapteenimme Rocco kertoili tarinoita Amsterdamista, legendoita aikanaan eläineistä henkilöstä hyvin elävästi. Matka oli turvallinen ja Amsterdamin valot heijastuivat hienosti pimeässä illassa. Suosittelemme tätä muillekin. This journey was si pleasant an wonderful. Thank you Rocco, you are warm and nice person to do your job and dream.
