Would really recommend this walking tour if you want to learn some of the more unusual stories about Amsterdam. Our guide Sergio was highly entertaining and knowledgable about the city and took the group to some off the beaten track places. I'm not normally one for guided tours but this one is excellent and amazing value for money. If you get the chance to go then definetely do it! Thank you Sergio for a great morning!

Visiting friends in Amsterdam, we were left alone for the day to explore and discover more about the beautiful city that is Amsterdam. Our hosts had previous guests who recommended such a walking tour for getting out and making the most of a day in the city. Having found Freedam Tours online, we quickly discovered we were in for a treat. Our guide Sergio showed us a side of Amsterdam we would never have found by ourselves, giving us a personal insight to his experiences of growing up in our new favourite city. To top it off, we got a Sergio introduced us to Stroopwafels, something we continue to have with our daily coffee. Thank you Sergio and Freedam Tours!

Thank you for this awesome review Jonny. I'm honoured to hear the tour had such a positive impact on your holiday. ...I'm left wondering how many stroopwafels you packed in that suitcase of yours. Come visit again when they run out! ;) All the best, Sergio

This tour is excellent. It lasts for 2-2,5 hours and it includes everything you want to know about Amsterdam. Our tour guide was Gianni, a local Dutch who was absolutely brilliant. He was very well aware of historical facts, had a beautiful intonation in his voice and mingled all the historical times of Amsterdam very well.
Everybody visiting Amsterdam should take advantage of this awesome opportunity.

Well thank you for making me tell that (extra) tulip story that day. They're my favourite flowers in the world! :) Happy you were able to make it that day, despite the group being (almost) full :) Hugs, Sergio

I have been living in Amsterdam for a few months now and decided to do something touristy when a friend came to visit. Luckily we got Sebastian as our guide! It was a really good, fun and informative tour! He showed us some really interesting things about the city that we didn't know! Make sure you go on this tour but ONLY go with Sebastian! He is AWESOME!!!
