      We had a very funny and interesting tour. Our guide Stan had a lot of knowledge and wrapped the information in a cool sleeve. He waited for us, because we were late, even if we were only 3 people. I would book the tour again and recommend it to everyone interested in the history of Amsterdam, the prostitution or the Coffee Shops. You will definitely learn something new.

      Przewodnik okazal sie osoba bardzo obeznana w temacie, opowiadal bardzo ciekawe historie z zycia miasta. Wyjasnil dlaczego domy sa krzywe, opowiadal o problemach z narkotykami w dwudziestym wieku, o poczatkach prostytucji, o znanych osobach z czerwonej dzielnicy, pokazal najstarszy sklep z condonami, jeden z najstarszych Kofi shopow. Nie sposob przytoczyc wszystkiego. Wycieczka byla zaplanowana na 2 h, przedluzyla sie do 3 godzin o czym zorientowalismy sie dopiero po powrocie do hotelu, bo wydawalo nam sie ze jestesmy na miescie moze z godzinke. Szczerze polecam

      We had Lorenzo as our tour guide and we couldn’t recommend him more. We were late to our tour and he happily waited for us, gave us great directions and was such a friendly guy. His knowledge and attitude about the city and the history made the trip very enjoyable for us even with the freezing cold weather! Thank you Lorenzo!! Adam & Ali
