Spent a rather rainy morning doing the most thorough and enjoyable walking tour I've ever experienced. A great mix of history, personal experience and humour, this free tour is the best way to see the city.

Personally I find walking tours a great way to kick off a stay somewhere. Not only do you cover some of the best areas of the city but you learn about the culture and history which is what makes you appreciate your stay. Our guide Sebastian gave us a varied and amusing tour that included historical and cultural insights as well as entertaining personal anecdotes. He found a really nice balance between providing interesting information and adding his own personal twist.

Top tourHighly recommend!

Had a great tour with Sebastian! Well paced and informative! Sebastian was very knowledgeable and personable…he had a good sense of humour and left lots of time for interaction and questions within the group. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends!

Second free walking tour that I take. Sebastian, our guide took us in a really interesting trip around the most important parts of the centre of Amsterdam explaining us history, legends and some personal stories of his own. That makes a great tour being able to get to know the city in so many ways. He also gave us a really nice postcard and some stroop wafels to give us some more energy to continue the walking tour.
The best way to know the city!

The guide (I've forgotten his name) was one of the best gudies I've ever had. He was really fun and personal, and he must have told us lots of history because I learnt a lot but it wasn't like a lesson. I thought 3 hours would be long but it flew by and we got a great overview of Amsterdam plus he stopped at the end to give us some great tips on where to eat.
