  • Very informative and entertaining. They had a covering for the boat since it was so rainy and blankets & pillows to keep us cozy. Drinks served on board were perfect.  more »

  • Yesterday had a boat trip through the canals where the light installations are placed. Positive: the boat hostess Florence and the captain Bram are very fun, explained the meaning of the light installations, serving the drinks, making jokes, engaging people. Negative: the boat itself is not so good because instead of clear glass/plastic windows it's covered with the soft plastic where u cant enjoy the sightseeings clearly, making photos is just impossible. Pretty cold on the boat even though the sits were heated. Out of 12 light installations 2-3 are worth seeing. In fact if u have a time it's probably better to take a walk along the canals to watch the installations, plus making good pictures.
  • Super nice experience in a great covered boat. Just the audio tour could be better because in some cases it just worked in Dutch
