What else you should know

We are knowledgeable, but we won't give a masterclass in history. The cruise will be relaxing, informative and fun. We cruise like a local, in a small setting and there will be plenty of photo opportunities.

Mini pastries freshly delivered by the local artisan bakery in the morning.
Coffee, Juice and Tea
Nespresso Coffee, Tea and Fresh-squeezed Orange Juice
Tickets
Memorable gift and extras
Boat
1.5 hour Canal Cruise. The boat is small and intimate and very comfortable; roof can be on or off depending on the weather. It's a fully electric, emission-free boat with permit, lifejackets, heated seats, blankets and restroom on board (a luxury). Rain or Shine!

What to bring

Bring a smile and camera!
