A City must do

This is a must for all new visitors to Amsterdam. The walk provided a great opportunity to find out about the history of the City; its buildings and areas of interest. Our guide, "Joran", was very knowledgeable, entertaining and gave a great insight into what makes the City tick, including where to find some of the best resturants. The walk also provided a chance to find our way around the city streets & canals - do remember there is no charge for this tour and tips are well earned. This tour was definately one of the highlights during our short break visit. Heartedly recommended. Many thanks. K&G

The best way to know about the history of the city!! Nice group, you learn about how Amsterdam developed, about it's buildings, commerce, the canals, etc. It was very hot but it was still ok, going through the shades. The organization was also good. A must!

Sergio was our guide during this tour. The group was small which made it very personable. The tour was efficiently organized, and we covered a large part of the city. Our tour was just under 3 hours, but I was never bored and the time passed very quickly. Sergio is a fountain of knowledge, not only about Amsterdam but about history and geography in general. His customer service skills are amazing. We introduced ourselves before the tour began, and Sergio remembered our nationalities and other things we shared and incorporated them into the tour. He had visual aids to validate his stories, and he presented the information using a story-telling style which made it extremely entertaining and easy to recall. You can tell that Sergio loves his job and his city. I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion and recommend it with highest regard. You will definitely NOT be disappointed. Book this tour and take it early during your visit as it provides a wonderful overview of the city’s rich and varied history.

Joran was an excellent tour guide. Gave us so much information. Took us to some great areas of the city. Loved the information about the small brass squares in the paving stones. We did find the tour a little long - ended up over 3 hours. But all good.
