What people are saying about Muiden

If you do one tour, do this one. Our guide, Steve, was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and showed us both beautiful sights of tourism and lovely hidden gems that only a local would know. Truely unforgettable experience. This was our favourite part of our trip in Amsterdam.

Out guide was knowledgable and I think it is something few people do when they get to Amsterdam but it is worth it. Den Haag castle is absolutely wonderful to see.
