This is a great option to the barge. The crew and tour guide on Mare fan Frysland (sailing vessel) were both friendly and efficient, which is not a common combination. Great food! Roomy and beautiful restored boat, and the basic cabin was plenty roomy for 2 who know how to pack. (The hot tub was a bonus!) Wonderful biking tours. Our guide was very informative as well as pleasant. I’ve done more vigorous, more “cushy,” and more expensive European biking tour with VBT and consider this a better value. I could have used a faster riding pace, maybe more independence, and more sailing, but I believe the bike tours and sail-raising were set for the common-denominator (“weakest-link,” etc) and that was the correct approach for a varied group. We were the 1st group of the season and the boat was not full, which added to the pleasant experience. We were concerned that we were going too early to see flowers and might fight cold weather, but it all turned out well…so I recommend you consider an early booking if you dislike crowds. Be aware that biking in North Holland can mean winds. It added to the challenge in a way that I liked, but not everybody felt that way. (That’s what the E-bike option is for.)

Thank you for sharing your experience on the Mare fan Frysland! It's great to hear that you had such a positive experience with the crew and tour guide, and that the food was great. The fact that the boat was roomy and beautifully restored, with a hot tub as a bonus, must have made for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It's also great to hear that you enjoyed the biking tours and found your guide informative and pleasant. Finally, it's good to know that the winds in North Holland added to the challenge and were well-suited for those who enjoy a bit of a challenge. For those who prefer a more relaxed experience, the E-bike option is a great choice. Overall, it sounds like you had a fantastic trip and would recommend the Mare fan Fryslan to others. Thanks for sharing your experience! Warm regards, Romy
