The guide was late and for a while we thought perhaps we were in the wrong meeting place but a call to the office confirmed it was just running late. Josh arrived and was excellent - he apologised for his English but quite frankly we thought it was excellent. The tour was paced really well and was really interesting, he interjected extracts from Anne’s diary to add to his knowledge. He also recommended an excellent place to eat near the end of the tour. Would recommend booking the Anne Frank house to accompany this tour.

The crew was phenomenal!! They were so funny without trying to overdue it, had great and historical facts about Amsterdam and were such a joy to be around. They made our visit to Amsterdam memorable and were a great group to enjoy time with. Thank you for such a great tour!!!
