This was possibly the best walking tour we have ever taken. Our guide, Dietrich, was absolutely amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable as well as being very patient with all of our questions. The tour included a number of locations that the locals would be familiar with but would surely been overlooked by a first time visitor. Dietrich was a delight to be with and thus we will always look back on this tour with a big smile!

This was possibly one of the best walking tours we have ever taken. Our guide, Dietrich, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and was so patience with all our questions. He showed us locations that locals would be familiar with but not the first time visitor to Amsterdam. Dietrich has a wonderful personality and he made our tour one that we will always remember with a big smile! Highly recommended.

Great Tour!

Renate, our guide, was very friendly, informative, and considerate. She took her time to explain the history and show us around Amsterdam in a way only a local can. We had just landed a couple of hours prior and were pretty jet lagged, but she still took her time to show us everything she could that interested us. She even took us to an amazing local cheese shop and dessert shop. I highly recommend booking this tour. You will not be disappointed. Unless you go often or are with a local, it would be difficult to see or know the places she took us too. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

Danny gave us a great 4-hour tour of Amsterdam. We're able to see all of the major sites and get a great history and perspective of how Amsterdam has developed over many many years. We especially appreciated having prepaid tickets and going on a houseboat,that was a unique experience. Great job, thank you.

Robert was our amazing tour guide...

Robert was our amazing tour guide for a 4 hour walk on our first day in Amsterdam. Robert was energetic, knowledgeable, personable and was able to adapt our tour so that we ended at our house rental. His tour gave us a great perspective on how to navigate the city with ease for the rest of our trip. He showed us several sites that I don't think we would have found on our own for example, we walked through Central Station for a view of the water and ferry. There were four people in our group and he was able to address the interest of all of us - history, art, shopping. Overall, I would give him 6 stars if I could, but 5 will have to do. Highly recommend this as a first day activity to give you the overall idea of the City of Amsterdam.

Eveline was a wonderful tour guide. She was on time picking us up from our hotel, and then proceeded to show us around the beautiful city of Amsterdam. She had enough in her budget to shout us a cup of coffee, which was very welcome on the cold day. We want to thank Eveline for the tour, the highlight for us was the flower market. We recommend highly Eveline for a walking tour.

This was a must do for any first timers to Amsterdam! Juliette was absolutely amazing with her knowledge of the city's history and a delight to tour with around the city. Wear your walking shoes! We truly covered the city and had a great overview of everything.

The tour guide met us at our hotel promptly at 9:30 am. We had an amazing day with this guide. She was knowledgeable and courteous. Walked just over 18.5 km in 4 hours. Would recommend highly.
