You should try the street food tour early in your vacation to be able to take advantage of the good stuff you learn. We had Jean that was a great guide and gave us both a good food experience and cultural/historical insights. Our tour was only us and the guide so it was very personal.

Our tour guide was called Arthur (I think that is how it is spelled), although not from Amsterdam was very knowledgeable about the city and its food. If you are expecting something outrageous that no one else knows about - you will be disappointed. If you want an entertaining couple of hours, and meet some similar minded people AND taste... More

Thanks for your review its helpful. Arthur is our newest and youngest addition to the team, and a new immigrant to the city, meaning he has come to stay. Though a little ripe around town he will soon learn more little secrets when he moves to Amsterdam. Too bad people dont ask to go to Haarlem where he lives. Only... More

Please please don't do the food tour; it was the most embarrassing experience. I love to travel and have been on several your me and this was by far the worst. We essentially jut walked around the street; the guide literally told us nothing of the culture of Amsterdam or the food. Although pleasant he was just a young lad... More

"We're sorry that you didn't enjoy the tour but it was indeed offered as described. We've had very good reviews for this tour in the past + unfortunately, don't have the ability to change out tastings if someone doesn't like one....Reypenaer Proeflokaal was of course free but hardly cheep. You did seem to miss the point we stressed in Modern... More

We joined two guys from Australia on the beer tour last night. The host Saun is from the USA , but having been in Amsterdam for many years has great knowledge of both the local and international beer scene. We started the tour in a great 'bottle shop' who had hundreds of beers on offer both on tap or bottled...... More

Took a 3 hour bike tour of Amsterdam with our guide Arthur. We used Dutch style bikes with pedal brakes which took a little getting used to but which added to the adventure! Arthur gave us a thorough overview of the rules of bike pathway system. Even though we were biking in the busy downtown area at the height of... More

I had a great time taking both the food tour and beer tour in Amsterdam with Sean. On the food tour we got to sample all of the Dutch foods I wanted to try like herring, stroopwafel, and jenever. But we also learned a lot about what makes Dutch eating culture unique. The beer tour was just as fun and... More

We've done a few bike tours in other cities, and our travel agent had pre-booked this tour in for us. We met our guide (who was very nice & easy to get along with) and went to rent our bikes. The tour lacked visiting a lot of the main city sites although we did visit the park and take a... More

So the first thing you learn when you get to Amsterdam is that Bikes rule! And the only way to truly understand why... is do this Urban Adventure with Sean J. He was so cool, took us to all facets of the city, including the flea markets, the ride through museum, the red light district - pass by. He really... More

We had booked this tour on line prior to traveling to Amsterdam. We had Sean as a guide to the "Off the Beaten Path Tour". It was a great tour. Sean is knowledgeable with interesting stories. The tour takes you to areas of Amsterdam you would not normally see. My wife and I truly enjoyed the 3 hour, which took... More
