“Very friendly and professional information service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Up to date information, very friendly staff with a great sense of humor.
The staff even apologized for the "long" waiting line and waiting time. But, to be honest we didn't have to wait more than 3 or 4 minutes and we're in a relaxed holiday mood.

“Intersting for Heteros too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

My boyfriend and I (we're both 20), found this on our way to the Anne Frank House. We were impressed and fascinated. Even if you're heterosexual, stop by if it's on the way. Because there you can find great souveniers for your gay or lesbian friends. The postcards were really funny. :) Also, the workers are the perfect example of layed back open-minded Amsterdamers. This is when we realized how open to everything the Dutch are!

“Best Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

I was directed to this location for some hot, good coffee on a cold rainy day. My hubby enjoyed a great cup of coffee and we recieved some excellent directions to the sites. The gentlemen were kind and friendly. Oh and they gave us a free map :)

“GAY TOURIST INFORMATION.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

Have just returned from a short holiday in Amsterdam and want to introduce Hans at the Gay Tourist Information Centre. Spuistraat 44.
Hans and his partner run the Information Centre and has the most amazing knowledge of what available in Amsterdam, GAY and STRAIGHT. Hans has created a shop and centre that exude friendliness and welcome.
I would put Hans as a FIRST source of in formation on arriving in Amsterdam. Makes fabulous coffee as well!
