What people are saying about Haarlem

Getting to know Haarlem in this way is highly recommended… Yoah the guide is very informative and you will come to unique places in the city center of Haarlem. I now know my way around this exciting and welcoming city with so much important and interesting history.

A charming and very informative guide, my son and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. I would be happy to recommend it to anyone visiting Haarlem, so good to see places off the beaten track.

It was a bit confusing where we had to pick up our QR code. He just turned out to be in the mail. Nice tour that made us discover other places in Haarlem.

Was too cold and windy to fully enjoy. It would have been a great time in the summer.
