Liad was a great guide and the food (and quick beer stop) was well worth the money! We left the tour totally stuffed and feeling like we had a very unique experience seeing Amsterdam through food. Liad provided a lot of knowledge not only about the food of Amsterdam, but some history / other good pieces of info that were very interesting. All around a great time and would definitely do it again.

Tour started on time, 9.30am, coach was comfortable and clean, driver good. Guide was very good, well informed, excellent linguistics and delivery plus a sense of humour. Great way to see highlights of The Hague, Delft plus pottery tour, miniature park, Rotterdam and lastly a harbour cruise. Tour took longer than advertised, back to Amsterdam at 8pm

Great trip! Hague, Delft, Maduroland, Rotterdam-it would have taken days to hit all this one our own. Our guide, Pedro, was the absolute best! He kept everything moving and was very informative.

Great organizations! Thanks alot to Adrian - fantastic guide! Recommend this excursion!

Martin was great. The market was so awesome and he introduced us to great local foods.
