“Best guided tour ever!”

Reviewed September 2016

 …The guide provided us with some history knowledge and development of culture, freedom in Amsterdam, that made many things much more easy to understand. His stories were very exciting and captive – just couldn’t stop listening! We laughed a lot and had unforgettable time. Without a doubt, the best tour in my life!

Amsterdam from a different perspective

Reviewed March 2017

Would really recommend this walking tour if you want to learn some of the more unusual stories about Amsterdam.  I’m not normally one for guided tours but this one is excellent and amazing value for money. If you get the chance to go then definetely do it!

Pure Passion

Reviewed February 2017

A two and a half hour well spent. When a venture is made out of passion, comes the rest of greatness. There are amazing stories, entertainments, and memorabilia. For a free walking tour, it provides the same quality of those even paid. Worth the try. Give it a shot!

This city walking tour was highlight of our trip. Usually I want to know about the history of a city but I get bored listening to all these dates and historical facts and a few hours later I don’t even remember most of it. But this city walking tour was different! It was a fun and entertaining way to know a lot about Amsterdam: the culture, the history, the people. Our guide was super fun and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend it.

“The best tour of Amsterdam!”

Reviewed August 2016

Spent a rather rainy morning doing the most thorough and enjoyable walking tour I’ve ever experienced. A great mix of history, personal experience and humour, this free tour is the best way to see the city.

Something different !

Reviewed September 2016

This tour was nicely unpredictable : with all its anecdotes of history, personnal living, architecture, people, culture and so on… More over, the guide is joyful, has in his bag not only little pictures to make you understand, but also a lot of humour for you to have a great time, and little surprises :)!

“Fantastic Walking Tour !”

Visited July 2016

This tour shows Amsterdam as a cohesive living tapestry with interconnecting links from past to present and is presented with knowledge and humour.  I can’t recommend this highly enough. If walking tours are your thing then this is the one to go for. If walking tours are not your thing, take a leap of faith and do this one. It’s worth it.

“Dam good Tour!”

Reviewed March 2016

Sergio does a great job on this tour. He manages to strike a healthy balance of the historical, cultural, social and controversial aspects of the City of Amsterdam. He truly loves his city and is able to convey that to his group throughout the tour. We had one day to “do” the city and this was the best way to immerse ourselves in its’ magic. Thanks again for a fabulous tour.

“Mastering the art of walking tours”

Reviewed August 2016

I have done several walking tours in Europe in the span of a month, and Sergio is definitely one of the best. He provides excellent anecdotes, both relevant and entertaining. And he ties everything together with an enthusiasm and passion that’s palpable to his audience. Sergio adds little touches of detail that lets me know he is truly trying to create a memorable experience.

Best walking tour ever.

Reviewed April 2016

I would say this tour was the the best tour I have experienced. I usually leave tours early because I get bored with too much detail and not enough topical interest but Sergio has got this tour to perfection. The time flew by and as the group was fairly small there was plenty of interaction and laughter along the way. it was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam.
