5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

A wonderful way to spend the afternoon the the Jordaan. Our host was very kind, very accommodating, and a wealth of local information. We did this on our first day in Amsterdam, which was exactly the right time - a good primer, and were able to get lots of good recommendations about what else to do during our stay.

And the food - was delicious. thin pancakes with some fantastic cheeses.

This tour was a top Amsterdam experience for me. The host was relaxed and personable and full of interesting facts. The meal was delicious, and getting to know the neighborhood and its hidden gardens was a nice bonus. This is a perfect tour for a "people person" who wants a unique experience.

This was great we got to meet a local and have lunch in his home. He was very friendly and showed us lots of secret places in his area. It was really lovely to actually just meet a local person and chat with him, we saw a different side to Amsterdam not just the touristy stuff.

Small group walking tour of Jordaan District. Many of the gardens were closed since it was Sunday. Had delicious Dutch cheese pancakes for lunch. David was a knowledable local with good information of the district.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2015

We were a little disappointed because we expected to have a meal in a dutch person's home and instead were met by a man who was originally from the US and in fact lived in the same state that we are from. The shopping experience was good, but we were concerned about the sanitary aspect of the preparation as Shawn would wash his hands and then blow his nose and continue to prepare the food.
