This was an amazing tour with Helena. We saw parts of Amsterdam we probably would not have seen, she gave great insights and wonderful recommendations. Anyone who gets the chance to have the tour with her is lucky. We had wonderful conversations with her, bought some art and enjoyed the tour to the fullest. We were the only ones that day and she was super flexible and attentive on what we were interested and wanted to see in Amsterdam. Great tour if you want to see a different side of Amsterdam.

Visit less touristy places that you wouldn't do alone

Our guide Joyce was changed at the last moment, following the cancellation of the visit by her. Erika replaced her at the last moment, on a public holiday. Erika is not Dutch, but has lived in Amsterdam for a few years, with a very good knowledge of the city, its history, its culture. Erika considering that the most touristic places can be done without a guide (museums, Dam Square, Red light, A'dam tower, Vondelpark, shopping streets ...), Erika offered us a global view of the city and of its history, then took us to less touristy areas but very popular with locals (northern areas by ferry, roof of the Nemo museum, quiet and magnificent Jordaan district ... all that, without counting its time: 3h45 of visit! A guide love, exciting, a rewarding visit.

Amsterdam like a local!

After visiting Amsterdam many times we decided to book this tour. And it was even better then we expected! I really felt like a local in Amsterdam, went to spots I've never heard off and only locals go. If you want to see the real Amsterdam I can recommend this tour to everyone.
