“Outstanding overview of Amsterdam.”
Reviewed by Daniel from Sherman Oaks, United States on July 25th, 2014 Gerk was fantastic- smart, urbane, informative, about not just Amsterdam but the Netherlands in general. Took his time, even stopped for coffee along the way. Superb all the way around.
A note about kids- Gerk doesn't "pander" to children. He addressed my wife and I primarily, and my kids, who were tired and a bit distracted, were left to fend for themselves. If you're a family with lots of children looking for a guide to really engage with your kids, Gerk might not be the ideal choice. Aside from that, I recommend him wholeheartedly.
“We loved Amsterdam walking tour with Gerk”
Reviewed by Mary from Kentfield, United States on July 9th, 2014 We had two children and grandma with us on the tour. All five of us enjoyed Gerk's interesting historical commentary, his attention to us and sense of humor. A very fine tour guide who is very knowledgable about his home city.
“Gerk was first rate on social & grand history puting it all in context”
Reviewed by Alan from Cambridge, United Kingdom on May 27th, 2014 Gerk Kazemier was a warm friendly knowledgeable guide, who made us feel very welcome. He covered the key sites in old Amsterdam, explaining they way they reflected the mindset of the local people as well as their place in the grander sweep of history. Came away with a real understanding of how Amsterdam had developed through the views of the people rather than the rulers, which has allowed a very pragmatic sense of tolerance to be developed and maintained over the centuries
“Gerk was great.”
Reviewed by Roger from Carmel, United States on April 25th, 2014 The guide and the sights chosen were great.
“Excellent way to see and understand the city”
Reviewed by Sue from London, United Kingdom on February 26th, 2014 Booked this half day tour for our first morning in Amsterdam. We saw areas we would not have discovered on our own. We learnt the history of the city which was delivered in a friendly informative way, without endless facts and figures. Gerk is very personable and relaxed guide. This tour opened our eyes and allowed us to enjoy the remaining days knowing about the wonderful city of Amsterdam. Fully recommended.
