It was a very fun tour! You could do nothing but laugh with the tour guide because of his great kind of humor and he was very thoughtful and constantly asked if we wanted to know something :) All in all a very authentic and fun experience, would do it again anytime

Had booked the tour with a German guide, who was missing unannounced. The English guide (Eric) then also led our group. He then led the tour mainly in English and partly in simple German. Eric was a great guide who led the tour with a lot of knowledge and wit. So it might be worth considering booking the English guide instead of the German one. The tour itself was great and is highly recommended. You see a lot of the city, get insights into the history of the place and the way of life of the Amsterdammers.

Eric was our tour guide and he made the experience a 10/10. He was funny, informative and gave us a great introduction to Amsterdam. I would recommend you do this on your first day - it gave us a great insight on the best places to visit, smoking culture and what’s best to smoke, as well as the history of the red light district. I came away from the tour more knowledgable and happy. If it weren’t for our amazing tour guide, we wouldn’t have had this experience, make sure to tip!
