I highly recommend joining the underground city walk. Glenn, our guide, knew the neighbourhood inside out and was a great story teller. Through his stories and experience we got a real glimpse into the past when the neighbourhood was not a touristic centre but somewhere where people were discouraged to go.

Very much enjoyed this tour, it was such a great way to set the touristic city centre back into its wider social and historical context. Glenn was a great guide, bringing the streets' past back to life despite difficult stories, including his personal one. A very generous person!

We had a blast today. Our guide Glenn took us on a tour telling stories about the heroin and cocain trade right in the center of Amsterdam. Dealing drugs, being homeless, telling us the ins and outs of surviving on the Streets of this marvelous city. But not only that. You get to know the many lives some of these Streets have lived. Old gang houses and police stations that are now trendy restaurants and shops. A really personal experience. To top it off, you see how drug users are being helped today. Buildings you wouldn't look at twice suddenly have a much deeper meaning. There's no other guided tour in Amsterdam that even comes close to this genuine experience.

It was a month ago, and I'm still referring people to it! Glenn, thank you for sharing your stories with us, and for bringing so much laughter to our day. Fascinating history, delivered with humour and playfulness that kept us all wanting to know more, even in the rain - the most current and insightful tour in Amsterdam. Thank you Glenn!
