Why would you not do this tour? It takes in parts of the city that you probably wouldn't see on your own, through back lanes, alleys, courtyards and squares, as well as some of the larger places.

Do this and the hop-on, hop-off bus and boat and you'll have all the intro you need to be able to branch out on your own later in your stay.

Charlie was great and extremely honest about the city he obviously loves, providing much detail of the history and sociology of the place and being open and challenging about issues like prostitution and drugs.

The tour lasts about three hours, with frequent pauses for explanation, and a rest break half way for a cup of coffee or a drink.

A must!

So I did the tour with Charlie an it was a great experience to know the city (and discover some spaces, that alone I wouldn't had discover) alongside with the stories that charlie told. It was indeed a great tour with a lot of stories. Go with Charlie!

Berber is a local so I was so happy to be in her tour! She has great knowledge about her hometown, and an awesome sense of humor. I really enjoyed getting to know Amsterdam beyond what it is worldly known for. I highly recommend you do a tour with Berber to have an authentic local experience of the city :)
