We had a fantastic evening trip with Robbie! So knowledgeable and accommodating, we had the best time. Would highly recommend this experience, especially early in your trip as you understand the layout of the city better.

Captain Robbie was fantastic! He picked us up close to where we were dining beforehand and then dropped us off 2 minutes from our hotel. He gave us a great tour of the canals with interesting history and trivia. We really enjoyed the cruise!
