    I took the city walking tour and I was amazed: I already knew Amsterdam is a very interesting city, but I was surprised it has such a rich history. Our guide Miguel was great, he explained many stories and funny things about Amsterdam and the Netherlands. We learned to know the city from different points of view and we got nice indications about good restaurants and bars. After the tour we had a cheese tasting, they explained us their cheese is made with traditional methods. We tried delicious cheeses (even a 3 years old one) and wines. Highly recommendable!

Super tour with Sebastian!

The privately booked tour (there were four of us) with Sebastian was very nice. Without being boring (even for our young adults) Sebastian guided us by bike with an interesting and informative tour of the lively Amsterdam. We non-cyclists have always felt safe, which is not to be taken for granted with this high level of cycling. Definitely again !!!

We really enjoyed the tour with our guide Carolina. We saw a lot of the city and got interesting information. Carolina was a great guide and we will remember the bike tour well.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Mona, our guide was very good and gave us very good information about Amsterdam. Thank you Mona for the nice tour with you!

Excellent experience, to know, learn and fall in love with Amsterdam, the city of respect and tolerance.
