Terry, our guide was absolutely wonderful! Extremely informative, witty, with an engaging personality. He easily expalined not only the history of what were were seeing but also the past and current culture of Amrsterdam. He answered all questions and expanded on them in very interesting and entertaining ways. This was our favorite Viator excursion along with the trip to Mt. Pilatus in Lucerne, Switzerland. The cost per person was very fair. We certainly got our money's worth over the course of the four hours. We have already reccomended this tour to our friends who may be visiting Amsterdam in the future. A gem!
Excellent tour 17 people were booked so 2 guides turned up to ensure each group was not too large. Very informative our guide was from Cork (Ireland) and very entertaining
This tour is an excellent way of knowing your way around Amsterdam. Our guide Terry from Ireland is very knowledgeable. We learned a lot from him about the history of the city, the important structures and their history. The walking tour was quite long but we had a nice coffee break in between. The tour ended near Anne Frank House, so we had lunch in the area and went to Anne Frank House at 3 pm.
I would highly recommend it.we saw parts of amsterdam we would never normally see and heard lots of history
The tour guide terry oleary was absolutely brilliant and made the tour fun but informative many thanks
My husband was relectant to go on the tour and ended up really glad that we went. Our tour guide Sean was a great historian and kept my 2 teenage sons engaged and interested in learning more about Amsterdam. We learned a tremendous amount about the dutch. This was a great way to start our trip.
We met up with our guide for a very interesting tour around some of the streets we wouldn't have explored on our own. There was everything from the palace in Dam Square to the red light district, located strangely enough right next to where the port was. Our meanderings took us to Rembrandt’s house when he was at his most successful. We saw plenty of canals and found out that Singel, where our hotel room overlooked, was originally a moat and that all the canals are flushed every day by the use of dozens of locks. She told us stories behind the identification plaques on houses and the hidden churches from when Catholicism was outlawed. We both loved the hidden and very picturesque mews with its lovely houses and gardens, such a surprise in such a busy city. Our guide was excellent and really showed us a city we could never have found on our own.
Terry our guide was fabulous. Well worth while. Youll see things you never knew existed. Very nice. Pity we did not order him for a private tour. If you can afford a private tour hes the man.
Our guide was Terry O'Reily was a lot of fun. He had us laughing the whole time. We saw a lot of Amsterdam that day.

Very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. A great way to get your bearings of the city before going off alone.
We arrived in Amsterdam on a Saturday afternoon, as first time visitors, and wandered the parks and streets for a few hours amidst all the crazy hustle and bustle, all the while dodging bikes, scooters, cars and trams! The next morning as we walked from our hotel to meet the tour - through streets thickly littered with empty bottles, rubbish and people who hadn't made it home from the night before - none of us was really sure what we thought of the city. By the end of the walking tour, however, we had all fallen in love with Amsterdam and just kept enjoying it more and more in the following days! Our guide was great - very informative, interesting, interested and witty! He really helped us to appreciate the diversity the city offers and to understand the history and nature of the place, including but not only the red light district and coffee shops. By the end of the tour we felt as though we knew so much more about Amsterdam and we were left really well equipped to make the very most of our days there. The coffee stop was relaxing and well chosen, the sites we visited really varied, and the tips given along the way of worthwhile places to spend some time - including several tucked away from the touristy areas - were very welcome. Thanks very, very much!
We booked a 3 hour walking tour to start at 10 a.m. We ended up being the only 2 people on the tour, we were grateful the tour was not cancelled. It was one of the most interesting walking tours we have taken in our travels. Our guide Sean was wonderful, he added energy to our tour, his personal touch was so informative. We started our tour at Dam Square and ended in the area near Anne Franks house. The 3 hours just flew by, Sean brought so much background history into everything we were visiting. We covered so much in 3 short hours. If you are a first time visitor to Amsterdam I strongly recommend you take this tour.

It was a great tour with a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We really enjoyed our time. The route was chosen wisely.
Great tour,great guide.Approx 3 hours walk with a small group of 7 making it very easy to speak to and hear the guide who was both humorous and informative.well worth it,would recommend to everyone on a visit to Amsterdam.
This tour is a must for the first timer to Amsterdam. Our guide was excellent, readily accepting us into the group despite us being 24hrs late due to flight delays. We were very grateful that we did not have to forgo our booking. The four hour tour covered the social, cultural and economic fabric of the main areas within the city as well as providing an excellent physical orientation allowing us to readily navigate the city over the remaining days of our stay. We strongly recommend this tour.
