We were on a 12 day trip through multiple cities in Europe and at the end, we all universally agreed the food on this tour was the best of anything we had on the entire trip! We found the canals and views of the city beautiful. Aileen was an excellent guide – very personable and easy to talk to. Thanks for an awesome tour!

The Food and Canals tour was very good. The tour itself was interesting and the food was great. Our guide Jelte was excellent: he knew what he was talking about and seems to fit in that job perfectly. Definitely worth every penny!
