We took the tour with Henk on July 9, 2022. He was wonderful and very informative. He has a wealth of knowledge to share. We loved that he told the history of LGBTQ+ with the history of Amsterdam woven through it. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was definitely one of my favorite tours the whole time I was in Amsterdam. Learning about the history of LGBTQ persons in Amsterdam was an eye opening experience. The tour guide being a gay man made it so authentic. I loved the stops along the tour and would definitely recommend this tour to others.
Response from Host, May 2022
So good to hear that our tour was one of your favorites. We strive to be authentic and real and show one of the many different and interesting sides of Amsterdam.
Informative and fun!

Had a great time going through various sites with Henk! He is detailed and personalized, and took effort to really explain things to me. He is also warm, helpful and caring, sheltering me from the day's drizzle with his cool rainbow umbrella. It was a very informative and well paced trip! Thank you Henk!
