Wonderful guide. Ian was full of energy and excitement in telling us about his city and showing us around. He moved at a perfect pace, made sure everyone in our party could hear him and was just a lot of fun. Great personality, funny and personable. I would highly recommend booking one of his tours.

Ian was gracious, punctual and tailored our tour to take into account our 14 year old grandson and three 70 year olds. He is enthusiastic and engaging and has a wealth of knowledge about the city and its history and talks about the curiosities etc throughout while we are walking. Highly recommended!

If you want to see the REAL Amsterdam, you won't be disappointed with Ian! From the canals, mustard and cheese shops to the history of the dikes and red light district, we saw it all! I would book with Ian again in a heartbeat. (Two senior couples adding the tour to the beginning of a river cruise).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you MaryKay! It was a great to meet you all, hope to see you again some day! Kind regards Ian.

Ian W was a fantastic tour guide. He was deeply knowledgeable about Amsterdam and full of stories and information about the city. He communicated well with both the young adult children of our group and the middle aged parents. He also tailored the tour to meet our interests. Every one of our 7 member group was very, very pleased with the tour.

This was the second tour I had with Ian. This was another memorable experience with an excellent guide. He is professional, enthusiastic, and personable. His knowledge of Amsterdam and its history is amazing. On previous tours with Ian I had visited many places of interest to tourists. This time, I wanted to visit areas of the city that tourists usually don't. I got exactly what I wanted -- we visited fascinating residential neighborhoods tourists don't see. Ian is simply the best.

Excellent introductory tour to the city of Amsterdam. Ian had terrific energy and knowledge of the city's sites and history. He tailored the tour to our tastes, and kept it comfortable while exposing us to the wide range of options available in Amsterdam. We toured with Ian the first morning of our trip and have used the information throughout the remainder of our trip (finding very great meals, and out of the way shops and bars). We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend touring with Ian!!

Ian did an outstanding job of keeping my jetlagged family (even the 15 year old son) moving and interested during our walking tour of Amsterdam. He has an engaging personality, high tempo, and tailored the topics and sites to our preferences. His love of his city is palpable and he navigates it with ease. Great visit and great tour. Thanks!

Our tour with Ian was the highlight of our visit to Amsterdam. He took us to places we would have never found by ourselves. His knowledge of the city and the history of Amsterdam gave us a new insight into life there. He was very clear from the start he wanted to make our tour what we wanted to see and experience. And the best part is his wonderful personality and sense of humor! We highly recommend Ian!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Delane for your review. Kind regards Ian

Our family of 4 (17, 20, 2 adults) had this tour with Ian, which was phenomenal. The best example I can give is that my 20 year old daughter had just spent a month in Europe for school, and had many tours. She said "this was the best tour of every tour I went on". Ian was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and passed that on to us. The time flew by, and all of a sudden the time was up. The best part (of a private tour) was that Ian could see what was interesting to us, and adjust the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Julie, loved guiding your family around. Wishing you all the best! Kind regards Ian.

We were a group of 4 adults looking for an informative and unusual tour of Amsterdam (April 2016). Thanks to Ian we were able to accomplish that and much more. He exceeded our wishes with his humor, insightful knowledge and anecdotes. His personal touches gave us a very memorable experience that will not be forgotten. He gets our unqualified recommendation for future tours!

IAN is an absolutely excellent, professional guide. He knew the history, background, and local stories of every part of Amsterdam. He adjusted the tour for timing whenever he sensed we were particularly interested in any area to allow us more time in that area or of particular historical interest. On top of it all Ian has an excellent sense of humour. Totally recommend him. Eugene and Mary-Lynn

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eugene and Mary-lynn. It was great showing you around, I loved our talks as well, wish you all the best and hope to meet you again some time Kind regards Ian
