    We were looking for something different to do in Amsterdam and came across this magic show. I was a little sceptical as I had a bad image of magicians in my mind, either cheesy male models or boring and old-fashioned. It was AMAZING! There were 3 close-up magicians before the show performing little 30 second pieces of magic in front of your nose that was honestly mindblowing. So even before the stage show started we were having a fantastic time! And the free glass of champagne of course helped! Then the stage show started, there were 6 different magicians on stage, each doing 10 or 15 minutes. So you never get bored! All the acts were so different and unique that it really is a delight for your senses. We got to meet all the magicians, most of which are European champions and celebrities in the magic world. Then after the show there was this party atmosphere, everybody got a drink and the magicians started doing all their newest acts for us. It really was an unforgettable night!

Close to Vondelpark you can find Museumplein, where the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum are located.

    Good value for money tour. Our female guide was excellent, with a lot of knowledge and she took us to the different areas of the city as advertised. We did not go to the park because is too big and required extra time. Be prepared to walk if you really want to know the city, not only in this tour, because Amsterdam has very narrow streets mostly designed for pedestrians and bicycles. Be careful with the cyclists because they appear out of nowhere and "in groups". We visited many important areas, monuments, building, bridges and we had wonderful views of the city. We had time for coffee and restroom stops too. I greatly recommend it!

Nice bike ride and very nice guide. Unfortunately it is not clear on the getyourgide website that it is an English tour. Fortunately, we were with enough Dutch people so that the bicycle rental sent a Dutch-speaking guide

Highly recommended! Cycling in Amsterdam is an experience not to be missed. Our guide was very nice and friendly and we learned a lot about the city.

An excellent way to discover the city and the somewhat hidden part with a super pleasant walk between city, canals and park !! The guide was great !!
