I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was friendly and funny, but also prepared and professional. I learned a lot about the city, and I also met some very nice people.
Just awesome!

Wonderful tour! The history of Amsterdam is presented in a way that explains the mentality of Amsterdam today, filled with wonderful funny stories and anectdotes from both the present and the past. Sergio is a fabulous teacher, and was happy to give us advice on places to see that were off the beaten path...... We followed up on all his suggestions and as a result had a very unique tourist experience. Highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I love walking cities and are delighted that we found the Free Dam tour. Sergio is informative, personable and interacts with the group, giving historical information, anecdotes and personal experiences of a city he's obviously passionate about (either that or he's a really really good actor!). His tour shows Amsterdam as a cohesive living tapestry with interconnecting links from past to present and is presented with knowledge and humour.
I can't recommend this highly enough. If walking tours are your thing then this is the one to go for. If walking tours are not your thing, take a leap of faith and do this one. It's worth it.

Lieke, our tour guide was very informative and gave a great tour of Amsterdam. She had many stories to tell us which connected with each other about the different sites she showed us. Not only were they historical but some of her personal stories. Lieke also answered any questions we had about all aspects of Amsterdam, from the culture, to tips and suggestions of where to visit.

Wandered around Amsterdam with Sergio today and had a great time. He's a really down to earth guy and mixed information about the city with personal experience. He could also answer every question asked and give great recommendations. We really enjoyed the tour and laughed a lot. Definitely choose FreeDam Tours if you look for a entertaining tour around this beautiful town
