We also lead day and half-day trips to areas beyond Amsterdam. Small groups allow us to cater to your needs and to show you the real area. As a local business we like to show other local places where mainstream tours cannot. Small groups of 4 to 6 people allow us to show you more. Tours are flexible to your needs and the circumstance of the day. Omy Amsterdam Tours believe that exploring the Old City Centre on foot is the best way to see Amsterdam. It is also eco-friendly and stress free. We also have a network of boats and vechiles for special trips. We conduct tours like we are taking around a family friend. What better experience of the Netherlands can you take back home? « less

We arranged this tour a few weeks before we left for our visit. I was a little concerned that the only way to communicate was through Facebook, but while the response time was sometimes a little slow, there were absolutely no issues and all my questions were answered. In addition to the tour, the recommended and reserved a spot at... More

We met and toured the City with Michael. He was FABULOUS! It was raining and even though we had booked him 2 days before he was willing to reschedule. We decided to go ahead and walk in the rain and i still loved the 3 hour tour so much i booked him again for the next day. He is flexible... More

When we arrived at the meeting place, all we could see were groups of young lads with tour guides and our heart sank, thinking this was not going to be our cup of tea. We then spotted our tour guide, Michael, and realised we were not going to be with these lads after all. From the moment we checked in... More

Whether for scholarly, sensory or sensual curiosity, this tour can easily be made to fit into your personality. My wife and I did the Red Light District Tour: Sex n Drugs excursion and this was a wonderfully personal and private way of starting our stay in Amsterdam. Whether you are nervous about visiting the Red Light District and Coffee Shops,... More

I was in Europe for business and had a day off to explore Amsterdam. I called first thing that Wednesday morning to check on availability and was very fortunate to get a 1:1 walking tour with Michael. The tour was fantastic and tailored to my interests. I can't write enough of how knowledgeable Michael was about the area and how... More

We (family of four including two teenagers) were fortunate enough to have two city tours with Michael last week and it was easy to become friends! Michael beautifully tailored the walk to our small group interests. He pointed out an antiques music instrument shop or a street full of Graffiti art. We've learnt a lot about the city and its...

We took the Red Light District tour with Michael. Although my wife and I were the only two on the tour but Michael made us felt at ease. Michael was very knowledgable and could relate back to culture to where we are from. The tour was insightful both on the coffeeshop trade and sex trade. Highly recommendable!

Thank you for the review. The Red light tour covers both the cannabis coffeeshop and the sex industries and is limited to 4 people. For the busy weekends until the end of September we are introducing an 8pm and 10pm tour in addition to the 6:15pm Red Light Tour.. Prices do rise for the later tours to compensate our guides...

Our Amsterdam City Tour with Michael on Easter Sunday was the perfect start to our month-long trip to Europe. Lucky to be the only two, we felt like we were on a tour with a longtime friend. Michael customized along the way. For instance, he pointed out building techniques to my engineer husband. Michael is very knowledgeable and is able... More

We took the Red Light District tour with Michael. My husband and I were the only two on the tour. We really appreciated the company going ahead with the tour for two. Michael was a pleasure. Lots of fun, very knowledgable, took us inside places we would not feel comfortable going into alone. Even showed us a wonderful wine bar... More

Thank you for the review. 4 is the magic number for the Red Light Tour. Fewer people, as you found out is even better. We have now started a Michael late night Red Light District Tour for this season. This is for those that want to experience the red light when busy from 10pm. This tour is limited to 2... More

There is a reason they have 5 stars. If you wish a small group, a great (professional) guide, a "personal" guide experience at a third of the cost, Omy is the "Only" way to go. None of us had any "deadlines" so we stopped for "refreshments" twice and the 3 hour tour turned into a four hour tour - and... More

Thank you for your review. As a regular reviewer on Tripadvisor we can appreciate you feedback. It is important for our guides to know if guests have commitments after the tour so that they can set the pace and incorporate into the tour a later activity if we can. If guests do not have commitments then the tour can reflect... More
