    We took this walking tour with Helena. It was fantastic. She took us all around Amsterdam into different areas explaining history and architecture. She us very knowledgable and friendly. This was our first time in Amsterdam and was an excellent way to get a feel for the city. We highly recommend this tour with Helena as a guide.

    Our guide was Willem. He was so informative and a great sense of humor! Has lived in the city for 60 years! Can’t beat that! He even waited patiently as we shopped at the little duck store.

    Very informative. Seemed a bit rushed and the guide occasionally had a bit of an attitude. She did do a good job of answering all questions.

    Marten was an amazing guide with plenty of knowledge about Amsterdam and Holland. We enjoyed a 3 hour walking tour. Be aware it's not as much walking as you might think. Alot of stop and talk locations. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Anna was a fantastic guide and led us on a fascinating tour of Amsterdam. She is so incredibly knowledgeable about the city and kept sharing interesting details about the city and the history with us all throughout our walk. I mentioned that I enjoyed photography and she made a point to show us some of her favorite views in the city. No question that we asked stumped her, it was clear that she has a wealth of knowledge about the city. She also showed us some hidden gems that we never would have found on our own. Our walk with Anna was wonderful!

    Olga was great! Very knowledgeable about Amsterdam’s history. We saw beautiful sights and she gave us great restaurant recommendations.

    Anna was very knowledgeable and engaging. We walked away with a much better understanding of the history of Amsterdam, as well as tips on where to shop and enjoy the local culture.

    The guide was very soft spoken which made him difficult to understand in the noisier locations on the tour. He knew the city and its history but was seemingly obsessed with telling us about the prostitution trade. We achieved a full understanding of the subject after the second explanation. The subsequent ten became a bit tedious. To the positive, he provided a great orientation for our later exploration of the city.
