It was out first tour with Viator and the experience was too good. Amsterdam city tour with expert and friendly guide was fun filled and memorable. Our guide was not only informative but she was a knowledgeable person, we realized this especially during our visit to Art gallery and Gems factory. Observing view of Amsterdam while sailing in canal cruise was unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wish to be in Amsterdam again and again.

The best way to get oriented to Amsterdam and all it offers. We took this tour on the first day after reaching Amsterdam. Our guide was very informative and provided useful tips for follow-up visits. After this tour, we went back and explored many of the neighborhoods on foot. I addition to the day cruise, we also took a night cruise and were able to see the light exhibits.
