We loved our tour with Brian. He was welcoming, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the city. He is an amazing ambassador for Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour particularly early in your visit as it provides a great orientation to the city.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of

Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
