Our three hour walking tour of Amsterdam was exactly what my sons (19yrs) and I wanted and needed! Only in the city for a couple of days, it was an excellent way to get our bearings and Giovanna was so informative, friendly and fun! We saw and learned lots. She also gave us the best recommendation for a pizza place we could go to in the evening too. We can't thank her enough for what was most definitely a highlight of our trip. Thank you Giovanna!

We were so glad that we had Giovanna for our guide for two days while we were in Amsterdam. Our first day we took the Charming Haarlem tour, which was delightful. Giovanna showed us things we would never have discovered on our own — like "hoffes" or secret gardens — & we also got to tour & see a windmill in action. Highlights of Amsterdam the next day was a great combination of historical background & key sites. We covered the true hot spots in 3 hours. If you have a chance to tour with her do it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Tricia, I also spent good time with you all, waiting for you to come back!!

We had a great time with Giovanna in Amsterdam. The tour helped us get a great sense of the geography, history and highlights of this beautiful capital. Giovanna tailored the tour to our interests, was extremely attentive and fun to be with and gave us great tips to make the rest of our visit a success. We are grateful for the experience and highly recommend Giovanna as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Spending time with you has been delightful, hope to guide you again through Amsterdam beauties!

This was our first time using Tours by Locals and we could not be more pleased with our tour with Giovanna. We wanted to see the Zaanse Schans windmills without being a part of a large tour and this tour was outstanding. Giovanna took us upstairs at Central Station, Amsterdam to see area with beautiful architecture that most don't even know is there. When I asked what a sign said that was in Old Dutch, she took a picture of the sign and had a friend translate it for us. An outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: After that I started studying old Dutch way of saying , ready for you to be back ��!!

Giovanna was a great guide with a wealth of information. She took time to understand our interest areas, she assisted us with the train tickets and made sure we had a great time. She knew the local shop owners so we were given more attention than just the normal visitor. She gave us tips on great picture areas/views. She was very patient with our group (group of 7) and would give us options as to sites. I would highly recommend Giovanna as a guide and would recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kevin, a big hug to all of you!

We booked a tour with Giovana in May. We had asked for something a bit off the beaten track. As luck would have it the weather turned bitterly cold and rainy. Instead of sticking with a plan that didn't suit the weather she instantly came up with a plan B. We spent a delightful day in Harlem, a quaint town that wasn't overrun with tourists. She knew several "secret gardens" to take us into and was able to arrange a cheese and wine tasting on the spot. Back in Amsterdam she gave us ideas for places to eat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, I have such good memories of our tour! A big hug!

Giovanna was wonderful. Our tour was fun and educating. She took the time to make sure we all had little experiences in our tour just for us. Highly recommend her. Very attentive and she took care with the pace in regards to our older friends that were with us. I would for sure book her again if we are able to go back to Holland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michelle! Hope to see you again in the future ��
