Loic created just the right balance of information and humour. We felt we learnt a lot about the history and culture of Amsterdam and the tour really enhanced our visit. Even though our son has visited the city a few times before he found out a lot more on this tour. We have be on walking tours in other cities and this was the best. Highly recommended!

Run by students. The 2.5 hour tour takes you to most of the highlights of the centre of Amsterdam. Fun and informative and very casual.

Charlotte was our tour guide, and her guiding was just perfect! She was excellent at connecting all the dots together with her rich knowledge in the city's history. What I really love is her reflection on the city's dark history. Oh, and also her feminism ambition- blue light window for women's needs.

This free tour took us from the Oude Kerk in the centre of Amsterdam to the Royal Palace. It was a great way to find our feet, and visit areas we may not venture to on our own. Even though the rain was pelting down at the beginning of our tour, that didn't dampen the spirits of our tour guide Suze. She just made sure anyone that wanted an umbrella, had one. It lasted about 2 1/2 hours, and wasn't fast paced.
Fabulous free tour, you just pay what you want in a tip.
