Our guide Alexandra was amazing! We were only in Amsterdam for one day and wanted to see as much as possible. This tour is exactly what we needed. In a couple hours you will learn so much about Amsterdam. Alexandra is really knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. It felt like doing a tour with a friend. Highly recommended!

Very exhausting because everything is done on foot. Very worth knowing, you are made aware of special features that you would not have paid attention to. Guide adapts such individually to his tourists.
