Our guide was Anna. This was a very good guide, she first asked where our interests were and responded to that with her tour. We have been to many places in Amsterdam and visited many buildings where she was able to tell a lot about everything. It was a nice tour along the various canals and squares and through all the streets. We learned a lot about the history of Amsterdam and the guide managed to bring it in a very nice way.

Worth the €, True Local Guides

We had a snag with our requested start time, but Louke was communicative and we worked out a new time on our own. She was a great local guide. Very relaxed, laid back, and avoided the red light district with our 10-yr-old in tow. Ferry ride was nice addition, appreciated the local insights. Could be a little stronger on historic/technical info, but overall a wonderful walk with a local. We appreciated her point of view and would recommend this tour to others!

Fantastic personalised tour

Claudio was excellent! He asked us what aspects of Amsterdam interested us and tailored our tour accordingly. He told us lots of intersting background information on the origins of the city and its tolerance policies and there was ample opportunity for us to ask questions. Would thoroughly recommend a tour with Claudio as an introduction to Amsterdam.
