Renate, our guide, was very friendly, informative, and considerate. She took her time to explain the history and show us around Amsterdam in a way only a local can. We had just landed a couple of hours prior and were pretty jet lagged, but she still took her time to show us everything she could that interested us. She even took us to an amazing local cheese shop and dessert shop. I highly recommend booking this tour. You will not be disappointed. Unless you go often or are with a local, it would be difficult to see or know the places she took us too. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

Danny gave us a great 4-hour tour of Amsterdam. We're able to see all of the major sites and get a great history and perspective of how Amsterdam has developed over many many years. We especially appreciated having prepaid tickets and going on a houseboat,that was a unique experience. Great job, thank you.

Robert was our amazing tour guide for a 4 hour walk on our first day in Amsterdam. Robert was energetic, knowledgeable, personable and was able to adapt our tour so that we ended at our house rental. His tour gave us a great perspective on how to navigate the city with ease for the rest of our trip. He showed us several sites that I don't think we would have found on our own for example, we walked through Central Station for a view of the water and ferry. There were four people in our group and he was able to address the interest of all of us - history, art, shopping. Overall, I would give him 6 stars if I could, but 5 will have to do. Highly recommend this as a first day activity to give you the overall idea of the City of Amsterdam.

Eveline was a wonderful tour guide. She was on time picking us up from our hotel, and then proceeded to show us around the beautiful city of Amsterdam. She had enough in her budget to shout us a cup of coffee, which was very welcome on the cold day. We want to thank Eveline for the tour, the highlight for us was the flower market. We recommend highly Eveline for a walking tour.

Our first day and our guide gave us a great 4hr walking tour of Amsterdam. She first asked if there was anything in particular we wanted to see, got to know us a bit and then personalised the tour. We learned so much about the citys history, culture and the mentality. We got lucky and the weather held out and it didnt rain as predicted. Im reviewing this after having been on 2 Viator tours on this trip and I would definitely book with them again they clearly choose guides who are very good at what they do.

Charlotte was our tour guide and was fantastic. Her pace matched was comfortable for us and told stories about the sites that we were seeing. She built a relationship through finding common ground with us. She recommended places to see and places to eat that were close by at the end of the tour. Her English was good. I would ask for her on any subsequent visit.

OMG! I feel so blessed to have taken this tour. First, my guide Massimo was the best I could have hoped for. He and I hit it off right away, and the next 4 hours were amazing. His depth of knowledge of the history of Amsterdam and the Netherlands was the highlight of my first full day in Amsterdam. We walked everywhere. We talked, we laughed, and we shared a great experience. I would do this tour in a heartbeat again and again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, and ask for Massimo! :-

We all highly enjoyed this tour, even though we had just gotten off an over night flight with hardly any sleep. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to the highlights of the city but off the beaten path some, which we enjoyed seeing. We were treated to a Dutch snack and coffee, both were great! We learned so much about the city, I would have never known. You can tell he loves his city and loves to show it off. He also helped us with a couple of questions for other activites we had while in Amsterdam.

This is an excellent tour to acquaint you with Amsterdam. Robert, my guide, was knowledgable and ready and willing to take me where ever I wanted to go as well as show me some spots like hidden Catholic Churches that I knew nothing about. I was some what apprehensive at the beginning as I was taking this tour by myself. But all of that was for naught as Robert's friendly and easy demeanor made it seem as I was walking and talking with a friend. Excellent tour.

Danni was our tour guide and she was knowledgeable and friendly and we spent 4 hours with her as a group of 4. There is not the same historical features such as Rome or Istanbul but we wanted the history of the city and understanding of the reclamation of the land over the last centuries. Danni was able to provide us with much information and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

My wife and I took the private Amsterdam City Walking Tour Tour/D525-6290ans4 and we had Mr. Kees as our guide. We were picked up at the Hotel on time and the tour lasted four hours. He was a very knowledgeable and sophisticated guide, who had an answer to all our questions and was a well educated, fine mannered Gentleman. We highly appreciated his explanations and stories and enjoyed this trip very much. I wanted to say, that the tour was perfect. I recommend People who want to visit Amsterdam in an intelligent and sophisticated way to ask for him.
