A two and a half hour well spent. When a venture is made out of passion, comes the rest of greatness. There are amazing stories, entertainments, and memorabilia. For a free walking tour, it provides the same quality of those even paid. Worth the try. Give it a shot!

Sebastian was very informative and livened up the tour with his personal anecdotes.
I learnt a lot in the 2.5 hrs would highly recommend.

Great walking tour of the centre of Amsterdam. By the old church and the red light district I don't believe that we would have ventured there without Sebastian our tour guide. The pace of the information and the walking was timed just right. No dates but plenty of history and funny stories. Some sad parts too. I cannot get out of my thoughts what happened to the Dutch Jews in the city during the Second World War. Still that's history for you! Ended in Dam Square with a gift and a group photo. If you are going to Amsterdam and want an orientation of the middle of the city and some history then join one of these tours. You will be impressed. Highly recommended. Sebastian you have this tour just right. Don't change it as it's perfect for a novice in Amsterdam. Thank you Jean and Sandra Friday at 11am.

Of the free tours that I have taken in European cities, the tour given by Sergio was one of the best. As a local to Amsterdam, he was extremely knowledgeable about the city and gave each of his stories a personal touch that made them both funny and entertaining. 10 out of 10, would recommend.
