This was an amazing tour with Helena. We saw parts of Amsterdam we probably would not have seen, she gave great insights and wonderful recommendations. Anyone who gets the chance to have the tour with her is lucky. We had wonderful conversations with her, bought some art and enjoyed the tour to the fullest. We were the only ones that day and she was super flexible and attentive on what we were interested and wanted to see in Amsterdam. Great tour if you want to see a different side of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam like a local!

After visiting Amsterdam many times we decided to book this tour. And it was even better then we expected! I really felt like a local in Amsterdam, went to spots I've never heard off and only locals go. If you want to see the real Amsterdam I can recommend this tour to everyone.

Visiter des endroits moins touristiques qu'on ne ferait pas seuls

Notre guide Joyce a été changée au dernier moment, suite à l'annulation de la visite par celle-ci. Erika l'a remplacée au dernier moment, un jour férié. Erika n'est pas néerlandaise, mais vit à Amsterdam depuis quelques années, avec une très bonne connaissance de la ville, de son histoire, de sa culture. Erika considérant que les lieux les plus touristiques peuvent être faits sans guide (les musées, place du Dam, Red light, A'dam tour, Vondelpark, rues commerçantes ...), Erika nous a proposé une vue globale de la ville et de son histoire, puis nous a emmenés dans des quartiers moins touristiques mais très prisés des locaux (quartiers Nord par le ferry, toit du musée Nemo, quartier calme et magnifique du Jordaan ... tout ça, sans compter son temps : 3h45 de visite ! Un amour de guide, passionnante, une visite enrichissante.
