Owner description: Small group tours and private tours company. It is run by me, Terry, and I do most of the tours. I have built up a top class reputation over the years for my storytelling skills and knowledge. Taking a WOWTour is like having a friend showing you round their favourite parts of the city.

“More than we expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

The WOW walking tour was fantastic. Hosted by a great story-teller, Terry, the 3.5 hour tour flew by. Terry was full of interesting facts, comical stories and most importatly, real knowledge. He took us to places there is no way we would have ventured to without a guide like this. It even included a stop at a local eatery where we could decompress for a few minutes, talk a little and get to know each other better. This was a great opportunity to ask random questions about Amsterdam. This tour was most reasonably priced, very easy going and an excellent source of Amsterdam sights, sounds and stories. Cheers to Terry & WOW for a fabulous time!

“Excellent value for money tour with a really enthusastic and knowledgeable guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2010

The WOW ( Walk on Water) walking tour was organised by Amsterdam City Tours. We had booked a tour for three of us on a Sunday morning. We had booked online at the last minute because of doubts about our flight to Amsterdam.The booking arrangements were clear and straightforward. However apparently the guide originally booked for the tour was taken ill and the tour had to be rearranged for the Sunday afternoon. Amsterdam City Tours tried to make several attempts to contact us but were unable to do so because we were in transit. When the three of us turned up on Sunday morning we were still met on time by a substitute guide and he took just the three of us on the city tour. Not only did we see all the main city centre sights but also the less common buildings. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and its history and the history of its buildings. He was clearly really enthusiastic about the city. With just three of us the guide could easily have rushed us round but he did not - in fact the tour lasted well beyond the three hours advertised. Amsterdam is an easy city to walk round but wearing sturdy shoes would be sensible. A camera is a must and if you have got a voice recorder better still because you are given so much information in a relatively short space of timeand it is difficult to remember everything. We had one refreshment stop but the impression was that we could have had more if we wished. All in all this was a great morning's tour and we were lucky with the weather - it may not have been such fun if it had been raining.
