Joran excellent tour guide

Joran was an excellent tour guide. Gave us so much information. Took us to some great areas of the city. Loved the information about the small brass squares in the paving stones. We did find the tour a little long - ended up over 3 hours. But all good.

A truly professional guide. Particularly impressed with Sam's handling of sensitive topics and that he did not walk the group through the "Red Light" district. His followup tip sheet was VERY informative . One of the best guides ever. O

Informative But Disengaged & dropped out
Angalaparameswari_M
, Jun 2022
The walk was informative but given that the guides do not have amplifiers , it’s very hard to hear them… in the small group we were in and have to often lip read them so after half the way , we decided to drop off the walk as we did not feel engaged as we just couldn’t hear the guide talking loud enough ..
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi Angala, I'm sorry you could not hear your guide properly. The city was particularly busy that day, on the weekend. The first couple stops also take place downtown, in the busiest part of the city, after which the tour continues in much more quaint parts of town. Unfortunately the use of amplifiers is not allowed in Amsterdam. In my opinion, the problem could have been solved by asking your guide to speak up. It's a pity you had to miss the tour because of this.

This tour was amazing and I would highly recommend. Jaap was a fantastic host, he was very relatable, took the time to tell the group about himself and also asked about each and every member of our group which immediately puts you at ease. Jaap was funny, charismatic and is a fountain of knowledge - on all things Amsterdam. Jaap also gave us many recommendations on local restaurants, attractions etc.

Our tour guide Gianni was fantastic, insightful and entertaining. He kept the group engaged and the 2.5 hours flew by. We learned so much about the city, culture, history and "tourist tips". His pace was perfect for everyone, and he was easy to hear and understand. Gianni really made the city and tour come to life.

Shanna was amazing!

Our tour guide was Shanna, and she was amazing! She made the tour informative, interesting, and fun. She was very engaging and animated. I’ve been to 29 different countries and attended countless walking tours. I have to say Shanna was one of the best tour guides I’ve had. The walking tour lasted about 2.5 hours with a substantial amount of walking so make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes. Thanks Shanna again for the above and beyond experience!

Sam made this tour interesting and enjoyable. He did a great job representing Amsterdam and it's politics. He also gave us good recommendations for the rest of our stay. Be advised that this is a tip-based tour. I was very upset to see members of our group leave after 3 hours without giving him a tip!!

Nice walking pace. Saw some basics of Amsterdam but I would have preferred something with more depth. More history/culture
