      We really liked the city guide, he earned 5 stars. What we didn't like was that when we booked the tour our hotel was chosen as the meeting point. Two days before our departure we were informed by email that the meeting point with the city guide has changed and should now be at the main train station. However, the city guide was not informed of this change, so that we could only wait for a long time to start the tour after a long phone call.

      The guide presented Amsterdam in detail and with very good specialist and background knowledge. It went into the wishes and ideas of our travel group in detail and took into account the different mobile capabilities of the individual group members. Despite the many tourists in the individual quarters, he knew how to inform our group about niche areas.

      Very hard-working, spoken softly and not connected enough
