The tour guide, Michelle, went above and beyond. He had a wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam and intertwined this knowledge with a really good sense of humour, keeping us engaged for the whole 2 hours. He left us with a lasting impression and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, young or old

Es war nicht nur das Historisch-Faktische, sondern die manchmal ironische, manchmal spöttische,oftmal witzige, immer aber selbstkritische und irgendwie bescheidenen Art unseres geschichtenerzählenden "Mentors", die uns als Berliner aus den trainierten Betroffenheitriten offiziellen Gedenkens heraus gerissen hat und das entsetzliche Geschehen tief unter die Haut gehen ließ. War von einem so klugen "Comedian" ja auch nicht anders zu erwarten, aber das wußten wir nicht. Michel,vielen vielen Dank, es hat Freude gemacht, Dich kennenzulernen. Sehr zu empfehlen!
