A Recent Review of this tour

Dina was fantastic. We had a most delightful day learning about her home city, Amsterdam. She was knowledgeable, friendly and most accommodating to our requests. She showed us some real gems that only a local would know and we are most grateful. We were able to see a lot of the city in an easy relaxed pace that was most enjoyable. I can't wait to return as one day just wasn't enough! Thank you Dina for your time, knowledge and for giving us such a wonderful memories of our time in Amsterdam.
