This tour was one of my best walking tours in Europe! Thank you Floor! :) Rarely do tour guides email the group photograph taken or provide goodies during the tour. Floor did both and surprised us! :) Thoroughly enjoyed the time!

We did this walking tour and had a lively, energetic, friendly, knowledgeable guide - Marchella. We learnt such a lot about the history of Amsterdam. It was very enjoyable.

There are free tours and then there are Free Tours, and this one was definitely the latter. In nearly three (!) hours our energetic guide Flora took us around the city centre. Her knowledge of history and the quick-witted liveliness of the presentation really made...More
