Private Tour: Amsterdam City Walking Tour
, Jul 2022
Our very knowledgeable guide provided a well-paced tour of the Amsterdam City. At the end of the tour, she pointed out where we could get tested for boarding our cruise the next day. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone.

Nice tour

Diane was knowledgeable and made best out of the rainy day. Great way to spend the first few hours in the city!
Great way to know the city
, Apr 2022
Loved our guide. She was friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. This is a must do apon arrival in Amsterdam to get an orientation to the city.
Thorough and personalized tour
, Oct 2021
Despite a bit of an initial mix-up (Viator instructed us to meet our guide across from the Central Train Station in Amsterdam at the tourist information building and instructed her to meet us at our AirBnB at the appointed time so it reqiured a little detective work on our guide's part to locate and meet us - Viator, please take note),our tour was a great success. Not only did our guide have an encyclopedic knowledge of the history and cultural heritage of Amsterdam, she was very sensitve to our personal interests and crafted her tour so that is was perfect for us.
Great city walking tour

Rick was a great guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the tour.His Spanish is excellent.
Canals and much, much, more!

This was possibly the best walking tour we have ever taken. Our guide, Dietrich, was absolutely amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable as well as being very patient with all of our questions. The tour included a number of locations that the locals would be familiar with but would surely been overlooked by a first time visitor. Dietrich was a delight to be with and thus we will always look back on this tour with a big smile!

This was possibly one of the best walking tours we have ever taken. Our guide, Dietrich, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and was so patience with all our questions. He showed us locations that locals would be familiar with but not the first time visitor to Amsterdam. Dietrich has a wonderful personality and he made our tour one that we will always remember with a big smile! Highly recommended.
Great Tour!
, Oct 2019
Renate, our guide, was very friendly, informative, and considerate. She took her time to explain the history and show us around Amsterdam in a way only a local can. We had just landed a couple of hours prior and were pretty jet lagged, but she still took her time to show us everything she could that interested us. She even took us to an amazing local cheese shop and dessert shop. I highly recommend booking this tour. You will not be disappointed. Unless you go often or are with a local, it would be difficult to see or know the places she took us too. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

Danny gave us a great 4-hour tour of Amsterdam. We're able to see all of the major sites and get a great history and perspective of how Amsterdam has developed over many many years. We especially appreciated having prepaid tickets and going on a houseboat,that was a unique experience. Great job, thank you.
Awesome Tour with John!

We had a wonder tour with John - highly recommend. Can't say enough good things about this experience.
Robert was our amazing tour guide...
, Apr 2018
Robert was our amazing tour guide for a 4 hour walk on our first day in Amsterdam. Robert was energetic, knowledgeable, personable and was able to adapt our tour so that we ended at our house rental. His tour gave us a great perspective on how to navigate the city with ease for the rest of our trip. He showed us several sites that I don't think we would have found on our own for example, we walked through Central Station for a view of the water and ferry. There were four people in our group and he was able to address the interest of all of us - history, art, shopping. Overall, I would give him 6 stars if I could, but 5 will have to do. Highly recommend this as a first day activity to give you the overall idea of the City of Amsterdam.

Absolutely wonderful. We learned so much about the city - past and present - and have a new appreciation for its place in history. Well worth it!

Eveline was a wonderful tour guide. She was on time picking us up from our hotel, and then proceeded to show us around the beautiful city of Amsterdam. She had enough in her budget to shout us a cup of coffee, which was very welcome on the cold day. We want to thank Eveline for the tour, the highlight for us was the flower market. We recommend highly Eveline for a walking tour.

This was a must do for any first timers to Amsterdam! Juliette was absolutely amazing with her knowledge of the city's history and a delight to tour with around the city. Wear your walking shoes! We truly covered the city and had a great overview of everything.

The tour guide met us at our hotel promptly at 9:30 am. We had an amazing day with this guide. She was knowledgeable and courteous. Walked just over 18.5 km in 4 hours. Would recommend highly.

Our first day and our guide gave us a great 4hr walking tour of Amsterdam. She first asked if there was anything in particular we wanted to see, got to know us a bit and then personalised the tour. We learned so much about the citys history, culture and the mentality. We got lucky and the weather held out and it didnt rain as predicted. Im reviewing this after having been on 2 Viator tours on this trip and I would definitely book with them again they clearly choose guides who are very good at what they do.

Lia exceeded our expectations in every respect. She is quite personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. As a result, we had a wonderful tour both in the sites that we experienced and in the knowledge that she imparted.

, Oct 2017
This was our 6th time using Viator. The first 5 tours were 5 . This one was disappointing. Though the tour guide was very pleasant, she didnt seem to have a definitive game plan for the 4 hour tour. There was also a clear lack of enthusiasm for the 4 hour walk and knowledge she imparted regarding the city was minimal. Not worth the , expected much more for a private tour.
Absolutely the best way to see...

Absolutely the best way to see Amsterdam. Our guide was knowledgeable and we had great conversations. Worth every penny.
