We booked online for the alternative tour a week prior, and the tour guide never arrived. Another guide from the same company said the guide wasnt coming today. Very disappointed!!!

Booked the Original tour for a busy Saturday afternoon. Waited around for 30 minutes, until we gave up hope on anyone showing up. Every other tour company we tried to join after was fully booked. Waste of an afternoon in lovely Amsterdam.

I did the Alternative Tour with Kaylee. We had a small group (6 people) - which was ideal. I thought that Kaylee was very friendly and informative. She also provided some good suggestions about interesting things to do while in Amsterdam.

Can't comment on how the tour was because our guide never showed up! Completely unprofessional as we were never notified that the tour was cancelled. I would not waste my time with this company ever again!

Yup. Was informed only when I rocked up to the blue umbrella. No email or messages beforehand. I had limited time in Amsterdam so I had to reluctantly join the classic historical tour. Enthusiastic guide and informative tour IF they show up.

It was a great afternoon tour plus a sunny day! The tour guide Oli has a very interesting way of leading you through centuries of Dutch history and culture while crossing the beautiful canals, red light district and other important locations. I definitely recommend it...More

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
