We experienced a very interesting tour of the city center with Claudia from Amsterdam-Liebe in a wonderfully small group of 12 participants. The entertaining, varied information about the city, the history and the life of the people of Amsterdam and "their houses" will remain unforgettable. Great thanks!

Our city tour was super informative. Theresa brought everything across in a relaxed and witty way - great praise - you have to do it
