At first I was a bit irritated because nobody was there at 2 p.m. but Eric was there at five past 2 and everything went well. Eric made it very fun and relaxed and we could ask him anything. We visited a particularly beautiful coffee shop. The others were now optically more average for me. But I now have a good insight into why Amsterdam with its "drug culture" is doing what it is doing and why that might not even be that stupid. I'm glad I did the tour!

We walked and learned with Eric! He was awesome….so knowledgeable…But with such a great touch of humor! He taught us so much about the local culture and how their system works..But also very much about the history. We would highly recommend this tour! Just know what a “coffee shop” truly is!

Definitelly recommended. Our tour guide for the Ganja Tour was Erik and he is exceptional, kind, friendly, informative, open minded. The tour is for anyone who wants to know more info about Amsterdam and its history and also for those who want to try some of the forbidden fruit. Also we were on a tour of Red light district with Manuel, which was very good because he showed us interesting things we would not try alone.
