    Przewodnik okazal sie osoba bardzo obeznana w temacie, opowiadal bardzo ciekawe historie z zycia miasta. Wyjasnil dlaczego domy sa krzywe, opowiadal o problemach z narkotykami w dwudziestym wieku, o poczatkach prostytucji, o znanych osobach z czerwonej dzielnicy, pokazal najstarszy sklep z condonami, jeden z najstarszych Kofi shopow. Nie sposob przytoczyc wszystkiego. Wycieczka byla zaplanowana na 2 h, przedluzyla sie do 3 godzin o czym zorientowalismy sie dopiero po powrocie do hotelu, bo wydawalo nam sie ze jestesmy na miescie moze z godzinke. Szczerze polecam

    We had Lorenzo as our tour guide and we couldn’t recommend him more. We were late to our tour and he happily waited for us, gave us great directions and was such a friendly guy. His knowledge and attitude about the city and the history made the trip very enjoyable for us even with the freezing cold weather! Thank you Lorenzo!! Adam & Ali

    A very interesting, fun and informative tour of Amsterdam's "dark" side. With Steffan we had a real stroke of luck, very humorous way peppered with many great little stories from our own experience or previous tours. The only drawback was that our booking was not reported to him, but we could prove everything on the basis of the documents. However, this should be the smallest problem, so the group was a little larger than expected but still very pleasant.
