It was out first tour with Viator and the experience was too good. Amsterdam city tour with expert and friendly guide was fun filled and memorable. Our guide was not only informative but she was a knowledgeable person, we realized this especially during our visit to Art gallery and Gems factory. Observing view of Amsterdam while sailing in canal cruise was unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wish to be in Amsterdam again and again.

The best way to get oriented to Amsterdam and all it offers. We took this tour on the first day after reaching Amsterdam. Our guide was very informative and provided useful tips for follow-up visits. After this tour, we went back and explored many of the neighborhoods on foot. I addition to the day cruise, we also took a night cruise and were able to see the light exhibits.

Truly amazing- Perfect guide Mr.Edgar for the perfect tour. He has great idea about the place and his narration was an icing on the cake. Majestic Holland where nature has been abundant. Must do for tourists. ..Earth's Beauty descends the countryside Zaanse Schans , Volendam, Edam, Marken, Dutch windmills reflects national heritage, cheese tasting meant indulgence, and wooden shoe factory visit signified a legacy . Weather was outstanding. Christmas decorations at homes and shops added a flavor. Nice Hospitality of Dutch a point to note..In all a Relaxed and refreshing tour. Thanks Viator. Salutes to Holland.

I really enjoyed this tour as it was more personal than the hop-on hop-off tour. The guide was very welcoming and knowledgeable. Plus, I felt I was able to see some hidden gems.

The tour was really great and fun! The bus was punctual. The guide managed to explain in various languages to suit the tourists on board. We stopped for 10 minutes at the Windmill to look around and take photos. Although it's drizzling, but we get to see the windmill close-up. Our second stop was at Coster Diamond house. It was an informative and brief tour on diamond. I'm very happy with the city tour! Thank you. It's highly recommended...

This was an excellent tour with an excellent tour guide, Wout. He made the information exciting and detailed and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This is an excellent way to learn about Amsterdam. We added the 1 hour canal tour which gave us a different perspective and was also excellent.

Very good. There is actually not that much to see architecturally from a bus ride in central Amsterdam but the commentary in English and Spanish on Amsterdam in general was very informative and amusing. We did go outside the built-up area to see a windmill famously painted by Rembrant but the highlight for me was a visit to a diamond merchant/factory and the opportunity to see some really expensive, sparkling diamonds. After the bus tour we went on a one hour canal boat tour but the timing for this is flexible so you don't have to go straight away.

We really enjoyed this excursion. to begin with the weather was lovely and hot, the lady comontator was exceptional really Informative, how she managed four languages so easily I just don't know! We feel we got a very good insight into Amsterdam including the architecture. We stopped at a lovely windmill and had time to take photos. The tour included an hours visit to a diamond factory and saleroom, very tempting but we were not pressurised into buying. All in all this three hour excursion get 5 stars from us.

We loved the sightseeing tour and cruise add-on. We were only in Amsterdam for one day and learned a lot about this beautiful place. Did you know Amsterdam has more canals than Venice? The Red Light district was interesting too. In case you didn't know, the girls in the windows wear bathing suites. That was a relief because we were worried about that, being conservative southerners from USA. Nothing to worry about.
