    Would recommend to everyone! Our guide was just perfect! We had fun! He also told us a lot of interesting things and showed us things that we would not have noticed ourselves! Be sure to take 2 euros with you! It will be worth it :-) I would book again immediately!

    Very interesting tour, you learn a lot about the red light district and the coffee shops. However, if you don't like crowded streets/alleys, you shouldn't do the tour. It was already very full. Special praise goes to the guide, Stefan. He was very amusing and funny…. would i do it again

    Excellent tour! I didn't expect much from it, thinking it was just about the redlight district and coffee shops, but our guide was amazing! He was very informative, gave us a bit of history, culture, and socio-political background. Nice way to see the city, going around alleys and the main roads. Must do while in Amsterdam!
