My wife and I took this guided tour with Murk at the beginning of our 4-day stay in Amsterdam in April, 2013. To be honest, it's the first time I've ever arranged such a tour; we usually find our own way around a city which we happen to be visiting, guide book in hand, but Murk had received such great reviews that I thought it would be a good idea to seek out his knowledge. I'm so glad we did; we saw and learned so much that we would otherwise have missed, and we came away with a much greater appreciation of the history, architecture and customs of this great city. Murk limits the numbers on his tour groups so that you really get to interact and ask questions; on this occasion, it was just the two of us with Murk. As retired teachers ourselves, we appreciated Murk's ability to make the subject matter extremely interesting and vivid. (Murk has over 30 years of experience as a History teacher, so he knows his subject matter thoroughly.) We spent 3 hours with him; he really went out of his way to impart his knowledge of the city to us. I can thoroughly recommend Murk as a great tour guide, one from whom you will learn a great deal, no matter which tour you choose to take with him.
