The guide explained well everything. It was a little mechanic and the relation to the group was strictly professional. The bus was ok but the people that sit behind me were not friendly at all, unfortunatelly. A lot of people that have done the tour smoked, including the guide, from the moment we left the bus and we were walking... that was really disgusting.

Top notch it was really worth it! The boat trip in Rotterdam's harbor was memorable. The visit of Delft was just the right amount of touring and some time to ourselves. The Didn't do much in the Hague but at least went there. The day was full throughout. Our guide Willem did an excellent job with his maps and historical story-telling, which filled in alot of the blanks for me . Very well done and would recommend it.

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!
it was easy and very quick, booked just few hours before the tour, wasn't sure to get the place. excellent service. our guide pablo was very professional despite being very young, new almost everything about not only Brussels but also Amsterdam. it was a very nice tour. 100% recommended with pablo
The explanations of Pablo de Zaragoza (our guide) were excellent. Amsterdam itself is a chaotic city, the city itself did not like me much,
Yesterday we made a very nice and interesting bike tour through Amsterdam with Mr. Hamburger as guide. Really recommended.
Excellent experience, to know, learn and fall in love with Amsterdam, the city of respect and tolerance.
