Terry, our guide was very knowledgeable and rather than just giving us a string of facts and dates he made the tour entertaining and he had a great sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hours and learnt a lot. We also appreciated the coffee stop.

Our walking tour of Amsterdam with Terry O'Leary was absolutely wonderful. Such a great guide with many stories to tell about each spot we visited. Even though we had some pretty hard rain at times, Terry kept us captivated and always found a place for us to gather to learn about the city. Highly, highly recommend this tour, especially with Terry!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

There were only 4 of us in the group for this tour on a grey day in March, but the friendliness of Terry and his quirky way of telling the Story of Amsterdam in his charming Irish accent was a delightful way to spend a few hours. He was full of little insights and pointed out things that I wouldn't have picked up on about the character of Amsterdam without him!
