Sebastian is awesome! Love the stories, humor and the unpopular alleys he guided us through. It was super fun and informative, basically covering all the questions I had in mind after wandering in the city for a whole day.

view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
