What a terrific way to understand the coffee shop culture...actually VIATOR u need to change the name of this tour as it is now called the Alternative tour....which also includes more info on the growth of Liberalism. A really great intro to the workings of Amsterdam.
our coffee shop tour was great.Bas was our guide and he walked us around Amsterdam telling us about the history of the area as well as the government. Great guide
Axel is the greatest tour guide of all time! Absolutely a storehouse of historical facts, fun stories and great guy to spend a few hours walking the streets of Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour guide and tour!
Aichane Agut was great! Excellent tour guide. Knows everything about Amsterdam, LITERALLY! The tour was in Español but she knew many languages. Best tour of Amsterdam so far! On time, she carefully explained everything and with details. Thanks
We really enjoyed this tour and learnt a great deal more about Amsterdam and it's culture from our tour guide Kendra than we read about online. This tour has a revamped itinerary of not only the coffee shops but also about the gradual openness and attitude one sees in Amsterdam. Kendra was wonderful as our guide and told us about the squatters, resilient citizens and the bicycle culture which defines Amsterdam. She also took us on a tour of the various coffee shops and how they came about to operate and the various regulations and etiquette which exists today.
This trip is less about the places to smoke pot as it is the real history of why Amsterdam is the way it is. Kendra is awesome and really cool about answering questions about Amsterdam even when it is not about the tour topics like how to navigate the bus system

Kendra was our tour guide and was terrific. Funny and very informative. Although it's more than just coffee shops. It's actually a walking tour seeing different sites and imagery of the progressiveness of the city. Definitely worthwhile though. Just don't expect to stop in coffee shops.
First of all, the name of the tour is and #39;The alternative Amsterdam and #39;. The guide, Mark ( I hope I remember his name correctly), PhD student was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, whitty, eager to share information. It was the best guided tour I and #39;ve been for years! It wasn and #39;t only coffee shop tour either.
We had a great time seeing all the sites and listening to all the stories that Kendra told us. She was very knowledgeable and kept us interested and engaged with interesting bits of information. She was a courteous guide and is highly recommended.
The tour guide was really fun and knowledgeable. He knew a lot about the social history of Amsterdam.
We all really enjoyed it.
What an incredible tour and fantastic guide. Another Amsterdam must do in Amsterdam.
It was very interesting and informative...the guide was very friendly and made us laugh at times great guy
This was a FABULOUS tour of Coffee shops, history, legalities, and all the nuances of the coffee shop culture. Total time was about 3 hours, and our guide, Tim, was Outstanding!! He had great stories, knew his history, and was humorous and fun to be with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!!
A good down to earth practical tour of Amsterdam, the psyche of the residents and why Amsterdam is Amsterdam.
