The absolute highlight of our (my) weekend. Peter our captain and Raoul his attentive first mate were brilliant. Awesome way to see Amsterdam. Could've spent the whole weekend on a little raw ferry! Just amazing.
Best part of the whole weekend, worked really well. Could help in future if groups are told name of boat they are looking for.
