Walking tour

Great personal tour of the city. Tour guide really knew his history of the city and was very friendly. We were luck that there was only four of us so we could ask many questions.

Yesterday, we joined the free walking tour with Julian, an young Australian man with a Dutch girlfriend (the reason why he moved to the Netherlands). He was really good; very knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. We learned a lot about Amsterdam during these three hours and we enjoyed every minute. We can cetainly recommend this walking tour!

Took the free new Amsterdam Walking tour in April. It was a large group so they split us into 2 groups of 30 each. It was a very enjoyable walk for 3 hours that took in the Red Light District, the historical centre of Amsterdam, a cheese tasting, Anne Frank House and provided a good understanding of the history of...

I have been to Amsterdam a few times on business, but not seen much. Mark gave a fantastic guide as described in reviews of the other guides. Im sure theyre all great - in addition he gave a fascinating view of the recent history - absolutely made our stay.

Our guide, Tim, was so upbeat and informative. He made the 3 hour tour very interesting. You can't miss this tour. We did it on our very first morning there - fresh off the plane and it was a good start to our trip. Plus, they give you lots of inside tips and free sample of cheese and a Dutch... More

In Amsterdam we did the free walking tour which meets at the monument in the city centre at 11am and 1 pm. Our tour guide Jen was absolutely sensational! She was informative, engaging and made the three hour walk throughout the city very enjoyable. I would definately recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Amsterdam! You will learn...
