It's a great thing when you get a professional tour of a foreign city. You learn a lot of new and very interesting things about a city in which you would normally run from one sight to the next without internalizing the information you read.

Piet was a great tour guide with much enthusiasm and passion for street art. The pace was perfect and we even stopped for a coffee.

Dirk was very knowledgable, energetic and passionate about the city. We learned a lot and enjoyed the day!

So what depends on the guide! Our guide Jana was relaxed, funny and could tell funny! It was fun!
