A nice city tour around the old town of Haarlem with commentary in Dutch, English and German. I found it good that getyourguide also has all the essential information in the app (of course the address of the meeting point, directions, telephone numbers, ...). That was very helpful.

Informative and interesting. You could hear everything even without headphones because some sights were spoken over loudspeakers in German, Dutch and English. Recommended, even if 50 minutes is almost too short in this beautiful city!

Friendly welcome and great tour. Explanations were in 3 languages for all on board. Relaxing and entertaining experience with some interesting facts about Haarlem. Highly recommend!

It was wonderful to spend the day with Steven, he’s very friendly and knowledgeable and took good care of us during our tour. Highly recommend him and this tour

Everything worked fine. We were even able to take our little dog on board.
