We enjoy interesting and unusual walking tours of cities, and we had an excellent Amsterdam city center walking tour with Melissa, who was articulate, knowledgeable, engaging, and friendly. She was enthusiastic about her adopted city (she is American), and as we happened to be the only couple on the tour that day, she tailored it on the fly to things we were especially interested in. Strongly recommended, if you like history and walking through a fascinating city.

Our semi-private tour ended up being a private tour and our guide, Gionnova (I think that was it), was great. She was prompt, informative and we truly enjoyed her company. We hit all the highlights of the center city area, including the red light district and some historical sites. It lasted about 2.5 hours and we stopped towards the end to have a cappuccino in one of the local restaurants. I would highly recommend this tour for really anyone who likes to walk at a slow to moderate pace and get a feel for the area.

Eve is an excellent, well qualified tour guide of Van Gogh museum. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We learned a great deal about the contributions Van Gogh has made to the world of paintings.
