    We had a fantastic afternoons walk around the City of Amsterdam, Giovanna was a great host, taking us through areas of the city city we would not have dreamt of visiting. She was very knowledgeable, full of interesting and historical facts. She went over and above our expectations as a host, therefore would not hesitate to recommend her as a guide.

    Wir haben vom Zentrum bis hin zum Künstlerviertel alles besucht. Dazwischen hat Sebastian uns geschichtliche wie auch Infos der jüngeren Vergangenheit gegeben. Weitere Empfehlungen wie das Grachtenmuseum oder Restaurants zum Abendessen wurden uns auch noch auf den Weg gegeben. Top Wir können ihn und die Tour nur weiterempfehlen

    I'm writing for the 4 or us who had a fantastic afternoon with Mor as our guide. She is smart, energetic, knowledgeable, funny, and adorable. Mor shared tons of insider, shops, hidden courtyards and on and on! Mor made our short stay in Amsterdam so much more meaningful and memorable. Absolutely an amazing tour guide!

    Peter was a great guide for our family.  He took the time to ask us and the kids what we like and shared from the beginning everything that he had in mind for our tour. He adjusted the itinerary to ensure that everyone was going to be happy.  He took us through side streets to avoid the crazy tourists summer traffic. His stories about Amsterdam were fun and we learned many things that we did not know although we have visited Amsterdam a few times before. Thanks for a great day!

    What a fabulous day Helena gave us. Took us to places we never knew existed and her local knowledge was second to none. The trip to North Island was the perfect end to a wonderful day. Would highly recommend Helena!

    Christa is delightful and knows all the lovely hidden spots of the city. She was also helpful in finding other spots after the visit. Plus, she didn't look at the time and spent more than two hours with us. Totally recommend.

    Louke was awesome! Very warm and personable, and funny! She showed our family of 4 a perfectly tailored day to meet our family's needs. She was excellent with our young daughters and put a smile on all of our faces. Full of fun surprises and extra touches. Very knowledgeable and helpful all around. Thank you Louke!

    Anna Marie was fantastic! I wanted to go away from the tourist hotspots and that is where she took me. She was incredibly warm and friendly and I learned quite a lot about the history and culture of Amsterdam. I highly suggest a tour with her.

    I really enjoyed AnnaMaria's company and insights and I appreciated the "off-the-beaten path" tour of Amsterdam.
