    We had an excellent guide, Alex, who passionately explained all the highlights on the route. Also, he did it in 4 languages, Portuguese, Spanish, English and French, to cater to each group on the boat ride. The ride was a lovely and easy way to the see the city on the calm waters of the canal. Also, along the way to the boat, there were guides to point us where to go... these guys are the ones in the dark blue jackets. Overall, it was a great ride. Highly ⁴recommended.

    I was disappointed in the canals themselves I loved the bridges of as I call them hopes and dreams. The interpreter was fantastic skipping from english to french to who knows what. The company was phenomenal. I was stuck i Aviero and they called me and told me to stop by today even though my reservation was for yesterday and put me on a boat.

    The boat ride was very nice. He left on time and we were no more than 15 people which allowed us to sit comfortably. The girl who was giving the explanation was very dynamic. The duration of the walk is sufficient , it allows you to take a tour of the entire canal and it does not become too heavy .
