Michael, our tour guide, was amazing. He was sociable, funny and definitely knowledgeable about these parts. 10/10 would recommend. Didn’t know it’d be so long though. Wore the wrong shoes. My fault.

Our guide Charlie gave a great overview of Amsterdam's history and politics which was a good starting point for exploring the city more meaningfully. Great sense of humour and an offbeat personality -- thanks for the fun and informative tour!

Our tour was a great introduction to Amsterdam! We loved hearing about Amsterdam from a local. Berber, our guide, was fantastic. If you’re looking for a great tour of Amsterdam, book this one! (And try to get Berber!)

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
