Dina was a wonderful guide - she was familiar with the neighborhoods we walked, introduced us to delicious native food, and engaging and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thank you for your review; It has been a pleasure showing you all Amsterdam and its culinary status! The warmest regards to you all! best, Dina
Dina met us at the cruise ship pier and got to know about us as we walked into the city. She has a BFA and a Greek with a love of this city and its culture. We learned about different aspects of the city structure and architecture. She was open to all our questions, matter-of-fact, and yet humorous and passionate when sharing on certain topics, like food! She was very liberal and respectful of the women in the red light district, and generous with her time which was also very professional. Donna
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna, thank you so much for your review! Glad to know you fully enjoyed the tour, my personality and my love for my profession and the wonderful city of Amsterdam! All theist to you all, warmest regards, Dina

A combination of both very good and unfortunate choices were involved with this tour. Konstantina was very good in outlining historical issues that have contributed to the complexity of Amsterdam. If this was strictly a walking historical tour that would have been fine but it was not. Her choice of foods for the group of six to sample met with strong disapproval from 4 of the 6. From bitterballs to herring to smoked eel fell flat. A suggestion: What foods will be consumed should be relayed well in advance
Dina was a great host. My wife and I learnt a lot about Amsterdam and tasted some lovely food and wine along the way. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, thank you very much for your nice review! It was sure fun to spend time with you and happy you know Amsterdam a little bit more by now! Safe and happy travels! best regards, Dina

Best introduction to Amsterdam ever! Dina and I exchanged a few emails prior to our tour and she delivered what we were looking for...art, architecture, history and food, even with the "worst weather ever"! Taking the tour with Dina was like seeing the city with a long time friend! If I could give you 6 stars I would! Thank you Dina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marilyn, thank you so much! Yeah, despite the rainy weather, and because of your positive spirit, we indeed had lots of fun! Hope the boat ride was also marvellous! 6^ stars, accepted:) The warmest regards, Dina
Antonia San JorgeMiami, FL, United States
Dina was very pleasant to deal with. Delft was wonderful. Next time would skip Hague as not very interesting - Hague was our request and not a reflection on the guide. Dina outdid herself trying to make it a pleasant day, including taking us to a pharmacy (our son caught the flu) and dropping us off at Efteling Amusement park at the end of the tour rather than taking us back to Amsterdam. Doing this added time to her day and was greatly appreciated. Would use her as a tour guide again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dead Toni, thank you so much your feedback! I couldn't leave your son without visiting his dream European park! I hope you had much fun there! Warmest regards, Dina
Mark MiserakUnited States
Our tour of the windmills with Dina was fantastic! She was prompt in picking us up from our hotel, she let us choose where we wanted to go all day. She recommended visiting the windmills first and that was the perfect choice. Dina was very knowledgeable about the windmills and the area in general. We went inside one of the mills to see it working and our guide was never in a hurry to rush us along. After the mills we went to a small local village and enjoyed lunch and a market. A fantastic day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, thank you for your great review! I also enjoyed every minute of our tour! Glad you liked my recommendation for visiting the off the beaten track fishing village and enjoying the uniqueness it offered! Warm regards to all! best, Dina
Rodney RosenblumUnited States

Rodney RosenblumUnited States
Dina is great! My wife and I had a delightful walking tour with Dina and learned a lot from her about Amsterdam. She is very friendly and accommodating!

Sharon OvsiowitzUnited States
Had a most wonderful day with Dina. She met us at our hotel and drove us out of town to see the windmills and then suggested visiting a smaller, quieter fishing village, instead of the usual busy ones. She was so easy to be with - informative, fun, interesting & full of energy. Our 9 year old granddaughter was with us and she connected beautifully with her and made her an important part of the tour. She took photos which she forwarded to us. Would highly recommend her. Thanks Dina for fond memories
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon, thank you so music for your kind feed back; means the world to me! I'm glad that Cole enjoyed the tour so much; Was such a pleasure meeting you! Warm regards and greetings to all. Best, Dina
Michelle GordonPUTNAM VALLEY, NY YORK, United States
Konstantina is a chef who knows where the good food is in Amsterdam. We had such a great time with her. We saw areas that tourists don't normally see and ate some fantastic food. She also took photos and sent them to us. This tour is a blast. If you are a foodie, you will love this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, thank you so much for your review! It was such a blast meeting you and thank you for appreciating my views on food and taste:) All the best to all of you!! Cheers, Dina

Sherry CampbellUnited States
Dina was very punctual and met us in our hotel lobby with a smile, ready to get started on our walking tour. She was very good at listening to our questions and answering very candidly. She had a great knowledge base. She went out of her way when we asked her to show us something to honor our requests. We covered what seemed like a large area of Amsterdam is just a few hours (17,000 steps that day)! We had lunch together and she chose a local spot for us which was wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sherry, thank you so much for your review! It means lots to me when I get so much appreciation! Have fun with your travels! Warm regards, Dina
Alka ShahUnited Kingdom
Konstantina was lovely and the tour would have been fantastic if we didnt wander through some streets which werent interesting making us tired for the good bits. Please be aware of sticking to the main sightseeing bits!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alka, Thank you for posting a rating! I'm happy you found me lovely, and very sorry you found parts of the tour not interesting; we have carefully designed together a total customised route for a walk in the city, through sighseeings of Rembrant's life; and the itinerary was followed to meet this request. The city is like an open air museum, but of course interests vary. I take every feedback into great consideration, for a constructive tour designs future. Thank you again!

Jim StanczakUnited States
She was great! We actually booked the red light district tour based on her city tour the day before. She was knowledgable, warm, friendly and patient with the children. We would go on a tour with her again in a heart beat. She tied together a view of the history and culture of Holland as we walked along the canals - knitting together information about architecture, food, art, and custom into a great snapshot of the Netherlands.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dears:) thank you so much for your wonderful review! Hope you have great more travels and more amazing dives! Greetings to you all:) I so enjoyed having you in Amsterdam! Warm greetings!!!
Cary FreedUnited States
Dina was fun and informative. No question was off limits. She had a broad array of knowledge about Amsterdam life today and in the past. Best of all it felt like hanging out with an old friend in a new city. Many thanks, Dina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cary! Was such a pleasure to guide you through Amsterdam and also felt like hanging out with a friend! Hope we see you back soon! Best and safe and fun travels!
