    Daan is a fantastic guide. I’ve been lucky enough to do several tip based walking tours in cities across Europe and he is without doubt the best guide so far He is incredibly knowledgeable, entertaining and engaging. He combines historical facts with hilarious anecdotes….the time passed too quickly- despite the freezing cold!!
    Great tour with a local!!

    The tour guide's presentation is highly informative and presented in a clear and understandable manner. She introduces each checkpoint with a professional approach and provides detailed historical background with illustrations. Moreover, her excellent attitude is reflected by her constant smile throughout the trip.

    Interesting history of the city. Went to the east India trading company headquarters and learned about the history of the Jewish population in wwii.
    Worthy tour

    Johnny the guide was good at passing on his knowledge and walked at a pace suitable for the slower members of the party (albeit too slow for me). Liked the cookie receiving bit of the tour. Tour ended 15 minutes earlier than anticipated but I guess that may have been due to the lack of questions asked by the walking party.
    Wonderful orientation to Amsterdam
    Bill_S, Mar 2023
    It was our first day in Amsterdam and we were given a perfect orientation by our guide Jaap. He provided a lot of very interesting information that helped put our visit to Amsterdam in historical and political context. Jaap is a wonderful guide and has an interesting and humorous way of presenting information. We found him entertaining, thoughtful and very informative. We highly recommend tours with Jaap.
