My husband had to delay his departure day at the last minute, so I went ahead and kept our tour and cruise bookings anyway. I'm so glad that I did - I met interesting fellow tourists and got a great lay of the land on my first day in town. By the time my husband arrived, I was able to show him around like I had lived there! The land area and history covered by this tour are vast but our guide kept it very interesting. I'd definitely recommend this to any Amsterdam first-timers.
It was a fun experience getting to know about Amsterdam from a local
This tour was great. The guide had aweome knowledge was higly skilled at what he did. Definately the best way to get an understanding of the city.
The only down side was that the cruise was too packed - but you can choose when you want to use it so I would recommend you wait for a less busy time of day.
This was brilliant! Our guide Stephen was very knowledgeable ! He made the tour interesting and humorous !
I highly recommend this tour!
Jose was a great tour guide. Even though this particular tour was in both Spanish and English he was thorough and answered all questions.
Our guide was very informed and personable.He provided a good historical perspective but also included humorous anecdotes and stories. The tour was just the right length and very interesting.
The walking tour was extensive and fantastic - the guide was entertaining and informative about the history and attractions giving us a huge insight into Amsterdam. Loved it!
Edgar our guide was excellent despite the cold wet weather. The tour covered everything considered to be necessary, plus some
We didn't really need the canal boat tour afterwards
This tour was great. Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable . He made the tour very interesting and fun. He tried to get my daughter to eat the herring without much success. He answered questions and gave us great insight into the history of Amsterdam.
Nice walk around the old town area. The guide met us on time and was very informative. Everyone on our tour thoroughly enjoyed it.
Ilaria was every informative and entertaining. A varied walk to introduce you to Amsterdam, it's history and peopl e.
This was a great intro to the city when we arrived. It helped us to get our bearings straight for our three day stay in Amsterdam. It was long, because the speaker gave the info in both English and Spanish. We never were offered the optional canal cruise, so don't understand what that was about.
Was an OK tour. They just walk around highlights of the city and not really inside the many attractions. Separate tickets for those. We stopped for local gin.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. We were a group of 6 and all felt that the tour would have been more complete if instead of snacks we had the ability to sample more food. We expected more of a walking food tour. We did not do the canal cruise that day but did it separately the following day and also found that worthwhile.
The tour was done in both English and Spanish so it took twice as long while the Spanish speakers waited on the English narration and same for English speakers waiting on the Spanish narration to complete. I would recommend this tour if it was done in one language - it just took too long so we left the tour early on our own.
I have done throughout the Europe the Free Sandemans New Europe walking tours and those were much more fun! We had a guy that was his first time as a guide. Not very good English, athough we can tell he knew a lot about history. This tour is VERY much concentrated in history. It is not about fun facts and showing off the city. We didnt even go to the I amsterdam Sign, which is the postal card of the city. I expected more for the high price they charge. As an advise: always go for free walking tours!
We have taken many tours from Viator and have been very pleased. We actually booked 4 tours from Viator on this past 2 week vacation. This tour was very disappointing in the fact that the tour guide had to repeat the information in English, Spanish, and Dutch. By the time he completed all of that information, we had lost interest. We have been on tours that have had 2 languages, but 3 languages was just too much. To make matters worse, it was pouring rain that day, so standing in the rain while the guide had to repeat in all of the languages was ridiculous. We ended up leaving the tour a little bit early because we were miserable. We were extremely disappointed that the tour office did not separate the languages. It's not fair to have people standing for 15 minutes in one spot just to listen to the tour being repeated in other languages. I would not recommend this tour to others.
