Great boattour with English and French speaking guide aboard. Brings you along several locks to or from the city. You can buy coffee/tea and drinks, hopefully next time during Christmas glühwijn...
Great boattour with English and French speaking guide aboard. Brings you along several locks to or from the city. You can buy coffee/tea and drinks, hopefully next time during Christmas glühwijn too! And it should be a totally nonsmoking boattour, because there are kids aboard...
