  • Axel is just a bottomless well of knowledge and entertainment. I highly recommend this tour.

  • A lot of walking but interesting. I was fortunate to have a real good, knowledgeable guide.

  • Very interesting, lots of background info on how Amsterdam and its alternative cultures have been absorbed into the general culture and add to it's unique character. Our guide, Axel, was excellent, with perfect English and extensive knowledge he was very happy to impart. Really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend.

  • Neither Viator nor the tour company took into account the fact that it was King's Day on this particular weekend. With thousands upon thousands of people storming the city, finding the guide was impossible. We gave up and did't do the tour.

    Guides and third party vendors need to take holidays like this into account when scheduling tours. We were extremely disappointed.

  • Axel was great. He was fun and explained everything in a very happy, funny way. I would recommend this one.

  • 1.we are not native english speakers , it was very hard to understand the guide
    2.we thought it will be more focused on the coffee shops and it was very general about many topics
    3.the guide was nice and knowledgeable
    4.high price

  • Tremendously interesting.

  • I booked and paid for coffee shop tour, did not get this, it was an alternative Amsterdam tour. stopped outside 1 coffee shop as brad pitt and George Clooney filmed a scene for an oceans film.
    Booked this tour because I really wanted to find out history of coffee shops, best coffee shops / worst coffee shops
    If I knew it wasn't about coffee shops, I would not have booked this
    Not happy

  • Coffee Shop Tour was combined with an alternative lifestyle tour, which was very interesting. Unfortunately, our tour guide walked very fast and sometimes got separated from the entire group. But, he did eventually stop to make sure everyone had caught up. The information he gave was very interesting!
    Thanks Much!
