The boat is large and comfortable; the two crew members were lovely, welcoming and knowledgeable; the scenery, especially on a warm Saturday afternoon, was stunning; there's a small toilet on board; the drop-off point, in The Hague, is at Bierkade, which is packed with cafés, restaurants and bars.
Fantastic value for money.
