Chloe Bacon - provide us a very informative and well presented tour of a city that she now calls this her home. Original from the USA. This was a small group tour and this is the only way to do a tour. We highly recommend this tour by WOW tours.
Our great was amazing and she was very knowledgeable about all of Amsterdam. The pace and group size was perfect and she was able to give lots of detail of past and present of Amsterdam.Excellent tour!
We spent a wonderful half-day strolling the streets of Amsterdam and really getting a great overview of the city and its history and culture. Highly recommend WOW tours--small group and great great guide!
While seeing landmark sites of Amsterdam, walking through side streets and sometime even alleys, it brings you much closer to the city. This combined with the history lessons of Amsterdam make this a good choice for seeing Amsterdam. It is a lot of walking, but well worth it! Oliver was our Brit tour guide and the small group maee it a more personal tour experience.
Sean (and his dog Tolkien) were good, but several people were very late to the start of the tour, so we had about 30 minutes less time to tour. Sean is pleasant, very knowledgeable, and did his best to adapt to the remaining time frame. He easily answered any questions from the group as we did this casual walk through the city.
Oh thank you for the support - And for the mention about time restraints. I really do try and make up for lost time if I do not have another tour commitment afterwards. Seems I did. I hope your remaining time was enjoyable, and you will come visit the city again.
The tour guide (Chloe) was super informative and fun -- you can really tell she loves the area and her job, her enthusiasm was infectious. :) Not only did she give a great tour, she also handed out her contact info so that if happened to have any questions after the tour, she'd be willing to help out! A+
This three-hour walking tour was well worth the cost. Our guide, originally from Wisconsin, spoke with knowledge and humour. We learned a lot about the past and present of this fascinating and beautiful city without the feeling of being overwhelmed with information.
It was a little rain, then sunshine, but the guide (Chloe) was very knowledgable for an American in Netherlands), very pleasant and made the tour extremely enjoyable. We got to understand a little about the culture, and the norms of the Dutch. Very enjoyable.
The only downside was the weather.
We really enjoyed the tour, mainly because of our guide, Chloe. She was energetic and engaging. She brought a unique level of interest and knowledge regarding the Dutch culture and history, which was refreshing. Thank you for a great tour.
