We took two tours with local guides in late May 2014. We took the Central canal tour first and then the Jordan tour. All the tours leave from the central courtyard of the Amsterdam museum and things are well organised and signed. What these tours give you complements but doesn't relace the good general biking and walking tours. The other couple with us commented the way we arranged it, these me in mokum tours were particularly useful. We did Mikes city bike tour, then Sandemans city walking tour and then these two mee in mokum tours. So, you book on line, pay a 7.50 euro per person charge in cash at the museum and then you talk with a local for two hours. All the guides are retired locals who enjoy sharing their knowledge with interested visitors. The groups are generally quite small - in our case it was just us on one tour, and one other couple in the second tour. The guides took us inside of buildings and courtyards we would never have found on our own. No tip was expected so the value is quite good. These tours are well worth the time.
