We did the walking tour! This tour was excellent. You get to explore Amsterdam, learn a little about Dutch history and traditons. Dennis, our tour guide was very nice, fun and well-informed. A very recommendable tour to do in Amsterdam and worth every penny!

The Real Amsterdam is a alternative tour to discover the streets of Amsterdam, filled with lots of little surprises. We had some nice hours together with Dennis, who showed us some hotspots and special places which you wouldn´t discover on a normal tourist guiding tour.
