Sergio's walking tour offers a perfect over view of Dutch history, culture and the origin of the philosophy of tolerance all told with incredible humor and passion. At each stop during the three hour walk around the core of Amsterdam he builds the story of how Holland was lifted out of swamp land by the ingenuity of wind mill builders, how those same mills led to a lumber industry that launched a shipping fleet that owned the seas, how the explorations and import wares developed the first stock market and how this tiny country kept European royalty at bay. Sergio weaves personal stories into his historical narrative that leave you with memories of having made a new friend in Amsterdam that you look forward to visiting again, and hopefully soon! You will love this tour!

Our guide, Lieke , was very enthusiastic and energetic . The tour was very good and she told us stories that are not found on the internet at first instance. She took care to bring cookies and postcards to remember. I recommend it 100 % , is better than a paid tour , lasted almost 3 hours and is very well to make it in the first few days in Amsterdam.
