In the beginning I thought that this would be just a "get high" tour Boy was I wrong! Eric made sure not only did we know the values of what Amsterdam possessed but the overall culture as well along with "gettin high" lol He was so kind and helpful. A tour that you must take!!

This by far was the best Coffee Shop tour I have taken. I have done this with two other companies and it paled in comparison. The guides were very knowledgeable about Amsterdam, and coffee shop culture. I paid extra for the extended tour. It was well worth it as I learned a great deal about the history of Amsterdam and the Dutch people.

AMAZING! Great and funny tour guide that knew so much information. Loved the tour. We went to a bar for a quick drink and yummy treat, then headed to a coffeeshop. The tour guide is helpful and rolls your joint for you if you are inexperienced :P This was just an overall fun tour. Loved it!

This was such a fun tour! It was also a great way to learn about the better coffeeshops from people who live in the area, while learning about Amsterdam’s history along the way. As a solo traveler, this tour was an excellent way for me to make some friends and have some fun! :)

I would highly recommend doing this tour if you are planning on venturing to a coffee shop during your visit. The guide was very knowledgeable about Amsterdam in general, but was excellent at helping out in the shops and guiding you on what to buy/try and how much to use.

Awesome tour, our guy was a sweet lady and very knowledgeable of the coffeshop culture and local culture. We started at a pup were we had the chance of trying local beer, plus got a little bit of history of the coffeeshop, smoking laws in Amsterdam, and explanation on different types of weed and explanations of what we were going to do. We then went to a coffeshop were we tried the product. We toured the city, she took us through small streets were only ladies live, through churches, cool installation in a museum, and other coffee shops. We passed through the red light district and got a bit of explanation about the girls and the window. Awesome tour and a wonderful introduction to the cannabis word for beginners!

What a great tour we had and we did the Extended version..the extra hour. Our guide Sam was so cool and knew his stuff and his cafe's. Of course you can visit these on your own, but we had limited time there just 3 days and to get the inside scoop on the best bang for your buck per say was very nice. Also learned so much more than just about the Cafe's and what they offer...he really informed us about a lot of the culture in Amsterdam. Would highly recommend to anyone!

This tour was amazing! Muha was our tour guide and he had ALOT of knowledge on the subject. He also sprinkled in culture to show you that Amsterdam is much more than just drugs and sex. I hope you're able to take the tour with him or Polly, both were super sweet!
