Elyzabeth is an excellent guide! Full of energy and passion for her work. It was clear that she had done a lot of research. The stories she told were engaging, varied, inspiring and revealed different aspects of LGBTQ history through the lives and experiences of different people. We also got to know about the historic context and public laws relating the LGBTQ community. All together, it left us with a different sense and feeling for the city. Highly recommended! P.S. Great communication and care before and after tour - even though it was raining, she didn't cancel the tour, asked us if we are ok with the rain and provided us with an umbrella. After the tour we got an email with people mentioned through the tour with suggestions for further research.

Elyzabeth designed an amazing tour for us in Amsterdam east. Our group was amazed by her vast knowledge, her passionate and engaging personality and of course the inspiring stories about the bad ass women in Amsterdam's history! Thank you so much!

This tour is really worth going on during your stay. I've been on several city tours and this one really spanned the history of Amsterdam and gave a new twist on it! It was super interesting and took me to a couple places I didn't know existed! Definitely put this on your list of things to do. You won't be disappointed!

This is a very late review, as my daughters and I took this tour in October 2018! Better late than never! Elyzabeth took us on a fascinating historical tour with interesting stories of the women who helped shaped Amsterdam today. Just enough scandal to keep my teenagers engaged, as well as bringing European history to life and making it relevant. Elyzabeth remained enthusiastic and energetic throughout the tour, recommending books and other places to visit. Thanks again Elyzabeth and I apologise for the delay... it was far to late to add the review to AirBnB.
