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!

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.
