This was our third different trip on the Merlijn. This trip was a wonderful view taking a lot of nature and of course some very wonderful towns along the way. Lia our guide was amazing and very well versed in the history of the places we visited. The Merlijn is just a lovely experience. Coen and Christina are excellent at running the boat and keeping everything on track. Coen was very nice in answering all my many questions. This is a wonderful trip if you won\'t be disappointed.
