I had a wonderful experience with this tour. Alex, my tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about street art, it’s history as well, fun facts about the country. I am so grateful to have had him as my guide. It was a very interesting tour and I highly recommend it for anyone really, as well, those who want to explore a part of the north side to learn about its history, it’s future and to experience a quiet part outside of the bustling city life. Check out Alex! You won’t regret it!

A must-do Tour!

We did our tour with Nicole. Although we're from Germany, we chose English. We were super lucky to get a "private" tour with just us four. We learned and saw so much. Nicole explained everything, pointed stuff out, answered questions. It was the best 2 1/2 of our stay in Amsterdam. Thank you, Nicole!

We walked a lot to fill these 2 hours so that, in the end, we only saw a few works - far too little for a 2 hour circuit - especially considering the frescoes and street art works seen by ourselves in the city afterwards (and which were not far from the circuit). Little explanation, guide who seems not to know how to fill the time limit. As for the alternative side and the free card, we did not get them.
