From the moment my son and I met Marianne at our hotel I felt comfortable and confident. Marianne showed us fascinating features of Amsterdam, as well as where we could buy the best chocolate in Holland!

A lovely, unforgettable day!

Marianne walked us all over Amsterdam and shared some of the wonderful history of this amazing city. She made it very personal and exciting by walking us throughout the city and showing us the history to make it come alive. She gave us all a tour ticket for a hop off and on boat for 24 hours which gave us some more options. She was wonderful and would gladly take another tour with her.
