The "Wetlands Safari" canoe tour was top notch. Majel met us at the bus station right on time and gave us an enjoyable, informative tour. She is very knowledgeable about Dutch geography, history and especially the ecology of the area where we were canoeing. It was a great experiene that I owuld recommend to anyone who likes the outdoors.

We had an amazing time canoeing through the waterlands... saw windmills, sheep and water lilies, and had a wonderful picnic with our guide. She was very knowledgeable about the area, and shared some great stories of the land and community. Highly recommended!
