Jeroen lead us on a great canal tour of the city of Haarlem! He gave the tour in both Dutch and English, was a gracious and accommodating host. The tour was relaxed and informative, and we enjoyed learning about Haarlem from the water!

The boat and tour guide were wonderful! The friend who joined me is a local and suggested that this must be what Amsterdam was like many years ago. Our tour was lovely and the guide was amazing at accommodating tourists in their own languages.More
