Me and a group of friends visited Amsterdam for the weekend. We're from Germany but it's been the first time we made it over the border to Amsterdam. We decided to kick off the weekend with a guided tour so we could get a quick impression of the most important sights and maybe get some insider information. I picked Oranje Umbrella based on the good reviews I read and it turned out to be the perfect start for our trip!
We had two guides in our group, Erik (American) and Franz (German). Both were super nice and knowledgable. Erik actually could host his own comedy show. He is extremely entertaining and funny.
Our tour started at the Royal Palace in the city center. From there we went to try some traditional Dutch food and afterwards to the first coffee-shops. Some of us haven't tried marijuana before so it was very helpful that our guides helped us with selecting and rolling the joints. They also knew a lot of interesting things about the differences between the types of marijuana, the laws on drugs in the Netherlands and much more.
What I loved most about the tour was the great balance the tour offered: We saw some really cool coffee shops, tried (very tasty) "space-cake" and so on, but we also went through cultural sights, a museum and some really nice parts of town. During our tour that was almost 3 hours we also got to know some really nice people in our group with whom we ended up going out later in the evening.

Bottom line: A great start in a fantastic weekend in Amsterdam. Very recommendable!

A really interesting and informative tour. Erik is doing a fantastic job. I liked that the tour wasn't only about coffeeshops, but also a bit about history, Amsterdam sightseeings and exploring cool places to go :)

Our tour guide Erik was AWESOME!! So funny and down to earth, we felt like we'd known him our whole life! He was full of knowledge and took the time to answer all of our questions! This tour made our trip to Amsterdam everything we expected it to be!
We look forward to visiting again and Erik will be the 1st person we contact for another tour!
