A wonderful evening, the tour was great value for money and the history of Haarlem and it’s architecture was really brought to life by our guide. Highly recommend this experience for all visitors to the beautiful city of Haarlem. We learnt so much (we’ve lived here for a year!) and we’re also able to enjoy our own picnic with friends and the fantastic summer weather. We can’t wait to go back again!

Very fun and educational tour! The guide also speaks good English and takes the time for the tour! You get to places you wouldn't otherwise. max. 12 people so you can ask a lot of questions.

Yesterday we had a very nice and pleasant cruise with Jeroen. He knows a lot to tell, but also creates the right atmosphere. Wijntje and snack platter from Zuiddam completes the tour, but Jeroen also arranges that. Recommended!

A successful day in Haarlem with nice weather and cooling off on the water. The tour went well. A wonderful casual atmosphere on board with a lot of interesting facts about Haarlem, without it getting boring. In addition, it is also nice not to sail in a standard tour boat, but in a luxury sloop. Haarlem is fantastic from the water! In short, we enjoyed.

I've been on this tour twice now, once in June and once again today (I brought my mother and friend visiting from the US). Lovely guide, very clean boat, and interesting tour! I highly recommend it.

Jeroen is really an ambassador for the city of Haarlem. With his enormous enthusiasm he takes you into the history of the city, very nice to see it from the water. Really recommended
