    I had already done this walkabout years before on my own and the person I was meant to go with this time pulled out at the last minute. And as it happened it turned out that it was only the 2 of us booked on the trip. So, I ended up getting a private tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam in general as well as the specific area and could speak 5 languages. It was much more interesting hearing about the little roads and seeing places one would normally walk right past if not highlighted by the guide. He took me to little off the main road bars and eateries that looked like nothing from the outside but were typical of the culture, and titbits of food were delicious. But be aware, they are titbits. It is not enough food to count as a substitute for dinner unless you have a small appetite. Take this into account when considering the price of this tour with food. In general though, recommended!

    The arrangement for the meeting point, with the Gide worked very well. We were informed in detail about the history and in the here and now. The small culinary stops rounded off the whole thing. We enjoyed the tour of the district. We can recommend this highlight at any time.

    Very good and worthwhile tour

    I did this tour with my entire family (10 people: parents, siblings, cousins, uncle + aunt, and also partner). We were between 30 and 60 years old. Despite the great age difference, everyone was enthusiastic about the tour and stories. Even the tour through the Red Light District did not deter the "elders" among us and they found it interesting. The food, which was offered in between, was very delicious and partly different than what we are used to. Jan is a very sympathetic and open guide. He was able to answer almost all our questions - and it was not just a few. He took his time for us and responded to our requests and did not just go through his program. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is in Amsterdam for the first time.
