Originally I was planning to book a walking tour with another company, but luckily they didn't get back to me with confirmation otherwise I wouldn't have gone on this one. I usually try to go on a walking tour in nearly every new city I got to, and this has got to be one of the best ones I have been on. We had Marcella as our guide, and boy did she know her stuff! Excellent, enthusiastic, and willing to help with any questions we had at the end. Highly recommend this company!

Our guide,Gianni,was informative and entertaining. His knowledge of the subject matter was thorough and he was able to answer questions posed by our group effectively. He was articulate and gave us some excellent advice about places to eat and shop. Both my husband and myself felt this tour was the best 2 and 1/2 hours we had spent in Amsterdam and would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city for the first time.

Interesting tour and our host, Bram, was knowledgable about the city; we learned a lot. The tour lasted around 2.5 hours and there were no stops for snacks or toilet.
