Our guide was Anna. This was a very good guide, she first asked where our interests were and responded to that with her tour. We have been to many places in Amsterdam and visited many buildings where she was able to tell a lot about everything. It was a nice tour along the various canals and squares and through all the streets. We learned a lot about the history of Amsterdam and the guide managed to bring it in a very nice way.

Sebastian showed us the most important points in the center and explained them in detail. We got all of our questions answered. He showed us his city with fun and joy.

Great guide with an extreme amount of knowledge about Amsterdam. We loved Sebastian's stories!

The Bar crawl was amazing. So much fun, with lots of shots included. Highly recommend!

Exciting hike through Amsterdam with all facets - a rich palette of stories.
