The tour was really fun and informative. We had Ilya Brodsky as our tour guide and he was really a great, energetic and informed guide. He provided a lot of information about the city, gave great tips about food and activities around Amsterdam, and gave us an overall great tour. He also managed to provide us with samples of cheese and stroopwaffels from local shops, which really shows the extra effort that he puts in the tour. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who would like to explore the city on foot and on a budget. The tour is free and based on voluntary tips at the end.

We had Ilya Brodsky as our guide. Though he knew quite a lot about Amsterdam, he yelled at his assistant (in front of the whole group) at the beginning of the tour, mentioned we should tip the cost of the theater per person at the end of the tour, mouthed off to another guide during the tour and verbally insulted a couple to our group for not tipping enough at the end of the tour. This is clearly not a free tour!! The information was great but with aggressive guides demanding set amounts for tips, maybe the tours shouldn’t be free. He even had the audacity to pass around his name tag for us to get his name for a “good review”. You’d clearly need to make sure you don’t insult anyone if you’re asking for reviews! Several people dropped out before the end of the tour because they’d simply had enough. I’d rather pay for a tour than deal with exorbitant tipping expectations at the end! I will be sure to never book another “FREE” tour in the future since it’s clear they are anything but free! I do not get tipped on my job, nor do I expect it. I do my work and receive pay from my employer. I do not harass my clients for tips or make them feel bad for not tipping enough. After all, if someone is booking a FREE tour, they are most likely on a budget. They should not be made to feel bad or embarrassed!! Never again! This tour is not free! Beware, if you don’t plan to tip the amount of a tour you will likely be insulted by the guide.
