I and my colleagues had a trip to Amsterdam in the end of August. On the very first day we went on a FreeDam tour and had the most interesting and fun tour in our lives! The spot was very easy to find and we had a small warm talk with the guide while waiting for others. The guide provided us with some history knowledge and development of culture, freedom in Amsterdam, that made many things much more easy to understand. His stories were very exciting and captive - just couldn't stop listening! We laughed a lot and had unforgettable time. Without a doubt, the best tour in my life!

I'm traveling alone in Europe for holiday and work and I thought this would be a fun way to learn more about Amsterdam. It was great! Ami did a fantastic job giving us insight into the history of the city but also pointers on how things work around the city. It was a great time and very entertaining too. Thanks Ami!

We did this tour on Sunday 3rd September in a group of 20 with Sebastian who was excellent and lasted over 2.5 hours of information fun and sometimes personal stories and experience. We did have a light shower of rain for a few minutes but it did not dampen the groups mood. Its a free tour tips only and I believe everyone put in a tip. Really pleased we did it as it set up the rest of our short break really well. You learn a lot about the Dutch ideas and attitudes
