Walking tours couldn't be so entertaining. Our small network of expert historians-turned-storytellers make the old city talk, and these walls do have tales to tell! Explore Amsterdam (and other Dutch cities) with this small company, the only female-owned tour operator in town (hence the name AmsterDamsel, of course).

We booked a tour of the RLD for a group of 12 with Amsterdamsel Tours. The service and communication was great right from booking. Our tour guide, Bas, was really informative and showed us the sights. He took us to places which, being 12 women, we probably wouldn't have visited ourselves. We all felt really safe and Bas took us... More

Larae was wonderful. We just got back from Amsterdam on January 4, 2015. Larae gave us a fantastic tour of Central Amsterdam and the Red Light district. She was engaging, funny, yet professional. The tour was well organized, and it covered all the major attractions. She also included special hidden highlights that made the trip much more personal. It could... More

We were a group of 20 people from work visiting Amsterdam and Larae was a life-saver in terms of helping me organize the whole thing. She organized (i) a tailor-made walking tour of central Amsterdam, (ii) a private dinner cruise on the canals and (iii) a tour of the Rijksmuseum for our whole party. All went very smoothly, the guides... More

Larae and her colleague provided a great tour of Amsterdam's main and slightly hidden sites, which is exactly what we were looking for. All 50 university students that were with us seemed very pleased with this experience, which gave them an insightful overview of the city, its past and present. I am happy we chose Larae and hope we'll be... More

A fun and educational introduction to Amsterdam: We booked our tour with Larae but she had a schedule conflict so she sent her associate Terry O'Leary. I was initially disappointed not to have Larae after so many good reviews about her, but she assured me in advance that we would be pleased with Terry and we were. We met Terry... More

Just had 31 grade 12 students for a tour of the Red LIght District in Amsterdam. Thought it may have been inappropriate but it was a school tour and it is the history of Amsterdam. I was incredibly pleased with the tour and our guide. Larae Malooly, founder and our guide did an awesome job and was very student friendly.... More

I work for a tour operator and meet guides all over Europe. It is with no exaggeration I can confirm that Larae Malooly is one of the best guides in Europe. Hands down the best in Amsterdam for sure.
