Loved our time with Rolf

My two girlfriends and I booked a 3 hour walking/bike riding your with Rolf Scheuder. We had an amazing experience and learned so much about Amsterdam. We walked the first hour through the old original Amsterdam and then road bikes through the northern parts and New Amsterdam. One of the girls was very scared of riding a bike, but Rolf made sure to start us off in an area that wasn't busy to allow for comfort. He is very knowledgeable and fun!!! This tour was the highlight of our time in Amsterdam.

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.

Rolf is a great guide!

Rolf is a very knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining guide. His tour was exactly what we asked for, and he provided our group with some very interesting facts and history about Amsterdam. I highly recommend him!

It was a sympathetic, informative and competent tour !!!!!

Rolf showed us with great commitment in a very friendly and competent manner through Amsterdam. He answered all of our questions. The lap we went was perfect. We had fun and learned a lot about this beautiful city.

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