interesting and entertaining

The tour was interesting and entertaining. We had booked a German-speaking guide, we were called and asked if we would also agree with an English guide. The guide Joost then made the tour in English and sometimes German. He responded well to our questions and was also easy to understand with the English explanations. Since there were 3 smaller children and 1 adolescent, the tour was a bit "chaotic", the guide managed this admirably. Big compliment from our side! Suggestion to the organizer: Offer tours for / with children. This could tailor the routes and the pace to the kids. The adult participants usually have different interests and a different pace than the kids.

The best trip we took in Amsterdam

This was a great way to see the city. We tried the bus, boat and this was by far our favorite. Our guide, Rob, was excellent, he way very knowledgeable and engaging throughout the trip. We saw a good amount of the city on this tour. Some of the roads are very busy so being confident on a bike is key!
