What a way to see the city! Our guide was so awesome. We were 45 min late (I got my times mixed up) and then we had to cut the tour a bit short because we had last minute tickets to the Anne Frank Museum but the guide was really cool about it and made it work. And I was not an easy tourist to work with - I could barely ride a bike but he was so understanding about it, making me feel at ease.

Manu was a great guide with wonderful history and insights to bring the tour alive. We learned a lot new despite having visited Amsterdam several times.

International Group Amsterdam Historical Bike Tour
Wonderful bike tour, best value!
, Aug 2019
This bike tour was such a perfect way to see Amsterdam. Compared to the other bike tours, I thought this one was the best deal with time biking for the cost. They split us into smaller groups and each group had a different language guide, so we got to learn a bit about the city as we explored. The bikes were comfortable, and with 3 gears, is easy to ride around without getting tired or too hot. Definitely recommend!

Went on this tour with my 16 year old son. It was great. Our guide - Frank, was very nice and helpful (especially when I fell off!).

We had Charlie as our guide. I did enjoy this more than I thought I would, however, it was a very cold night and this tour involved a lot of standing around and listening. I wish we'd done more walking or at least found a warmer place to stand. Charlie did a good job, I do wish he would have had a hand up or something as it was hard to follow him in the crowd and several times we almost lost him and there were only 15 or so of us. I think this tour is for someone that wants to see the red light district but may be uncomfortable doing so by themselves, that seemed to be the clientele.

Sex Worker Guided Amsterdam Red Light District Walking Tour
Far more interesting than we were expecting.
, Feb 2020
This tour popped up just after we booked our trip. We decided to give it a go as a bit of fun, expecting to have a 85 year old guide with very old memories of the district. Couldn’t have been more wrong, our guide was young, lovely and really funny. She told it how it was for her and praised the house owners and police for keeping her and all the workers safe. All in all a great night out.

Renate, our guide, was very friendly, informative, and considerate. She took her time to explain the history and show us around Amsterdam in a way only a local can. We had just landed a couple of hours prior and were pretty jet lagged, but she still took her time to show us everything she could that interested us. She even took us to an amazing local cheese shop and dessert shop. I highly recommend booking this tour. You will not be disappointed. Unless you go often or are with a local, it would be difficult to see or know the places she took us too. Do not hesitate to book this tour.
