Great tour

Timo our guide was a friendly relaxed positive history graduate living in Amsterdam and so he knew a lot about the city – including wonderful medieval courtyards and museums we would never have found out about if it weren’t for him.

Fantastic Tour Guide

This tour made my trip to Amsterdam! Antolín was the ideal tour guide. He grew up in Amsterdam, so he had all the insights of a local. Afterwards, he invited us to try raw herring (which I would NOT have done on my own) and then some apple pie. His willingness to help and make recommendations was superb, and I’m grateful that I signed up for this tour.

Entertaining and Educational

Our group toured with our guide “Josje” and had a great walk around Amsterdam. She has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about the city and the country. Excellent interaction with everyone in our group and answered all of our questions very well. Great way to learn about the city and its culture.

Great tour! Thank you Joe!

We did the walking tour with Joe, absolutely amazing. Fun, engaging and lots of information. He was
very open to questions and not afraid to go off topic. Highly recommended.
