My mom is quite picky with tours, so this private tour was perfect because it was so flexible. Balo was also a great tour guide for us, and he showed us the best sights in Amsterdam. If you have a layover and want to do a private tour in Amsterdam, this is perfect!

My tour guide was amazing. I wanted to see as much of the city as I could in three hours, and he made it happen, sharing interesting history and details about everything as we went. He had the perfect recommendations on where to stop and walk around a bit and was great about stopping so I could take pictures or taking pictures of me in front of things I really wanted to see. I cannot say enough good things about this tour. At first I thought it was a little pricey, but now I definitely think it was worth it because I feel like I spent the whole day there instead of just three hours. The guide was also great at making sure we didn't take any chances at not making it back in time for my flight, too. Better than sitting at the airport waiting for sure!

Fantastic. The driver and guide was very knowledgeable and showed us sights both in and out of the city centre. Highly recommend if you have a few hours spare in Amsterdam, and you can personalise your itinerary so we stopped off for lunch, had a canal tour and got dropped off in city centre so we could have a stroll around the RLD, dinner and headed back to airport via train ourselves as had couple extra hours after tour ended.

Our driver was waiting for us at the airport, was courteous and very friendly and gave us a great tour of Amsterdam, then drove us to the cruise ship. Great Job, will highly reccommend you to others.
