I chose to do our walking tour with toursbylocals. The booking process was very efficient. I chose Yvonne to be our guide and she was fantastic. We were a group of 10 and everyone enjoyed it very much. She was very happy to tailor our tour if there was anywhere we particularly wanted to go but we chose to leave it in her capable hands to take us where she thought best. She was very informative and took us to the popular tourist sights but also to some less known places. I would definitely recommend Yvonne

Yvonne was an outstanding guide. This was our first visit to Amsterdam and she did a great job featuring key historical information. She was most helpful suggesting restaurants and how to return to our hotel. If you would like to learn about Amsterdam city center then suggest you have Yvonne give you a tour.

Yvonne did an incredible job for us. We were a small group of 5 with 3 adults and 2 teenagers (14 and 18). We flew very early into Amsterdam, planning on boarding a cruise in the late afternoon. We had a day and did not want to waste it. Thanks to Yvonne, we used every minute and had a wonderful day. She met us at the tourist center, found us a place to stash our luggage for the day, and off we went! She was extremely organized and knowledgeable. We saw so much in such a short time. Thank you!!!!!

I was very lucky to have Yvonne as my Amsterdam guide for 4 hours, around the canals, Dam Square and Beginhof. She is very friendly, warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the history and interesting tidbits of Amsterdam and it's attractions. Yvonne was also very patient and obliging when it comes to taking photos for you :) If not for her, i would still be lost in the canals, and my Amsterdam trip would not have been enriching and memorable. I highly recommend Yvonne as your guide in lovely AMS :)

An above and beyond guide. This tour provides and intimate tour of the inner part of Amsterdam--we saw areas and gained and understanding that really help us get to know Amsterdam--I thought I had a good understanding of Amsterdam from an earlier trip but boy was I wrong. It was like getting a tour from a family friend. She also provided some added value by helping us explore our hotel choices and restaurants. If you do no other tour while in Amsterdam this is one you should do.

We spent a lovely day and a half with Yvonne and a pace that suited us all. My two teenage daughters were very comfortable with Yvonne and she listened when the chattered on. It was delightful to learn about the history of Amsterdam and the architecture of the drunk buildings while walking or on the boat. Even nicer is that Yvonne organized a little cheese and chocolat tasting with delightful vendors off the beaten track. It felt like meeting a friend every morning and made the whole trip relaxed.

Yvonne was a fantastic tour guide. She was very knowledgeab, friendly, answered all our questions and even made suggestions for places to eat and other activities to do on our trip. My mother is older so does not walk that fast and is also hearing impaired. Yvonne ensured that the pace suited my mother and was also flexible and agreed to wear a mic that was wirelessly connected to her hearing aids. Her English was perfect.

We had a GREAT tour with Yvonne! We told her we had no particular interests and just wanted to get a good overview of Amsterdam as we had not been before. The tour she created was so interesting! She covered the general historical/landmark points but also provided lots of "color commentary"--the WHY of many things, which really brought a spectacular city to vibrant life.

Yvonne provided an excellent introduction to Amsterdam filled with insider information, like the bakery near our hotel where we enjoyed morning goodies. As important as our walking tour was her helpful advice before we left home on securing advance tickets to major attractions. We were introduced to most of the must-see areas of the old city, given a helpful lesson on riding the tram system, and shared a delicious lunch together away from the crowds. Highly recommended!

My wife and I enjoyed our walking tour with Yvonne. It was a wonderful way to see the old city and understand the history of Amsterdam. Yvonne also tailored the tour to our specific desires. In our case, we wanted to see a slice of the food in Amsterdam so we tried the best fries, a local fast food place where you put in money in a vending wall, and had a lot of restaurant recommendations. Yvonne managed the time very well, was flexible and also solicitous of our well being. We highly recommend this tour!

The pace was moderate - certainly comfortable. Per our request, she added the Nine Streets to the tour and removed the Red Light District.

The entire experience was fantastic - from the booking, the information provided by Yvonne before our trip and the great tour itself! Yvonne did an excellent job of tweaking the tour to accommodate our family with three children -just enough of exposure to the more adult aspects of Amsterdam while finding the best chocolate and "dutch fries" for the younger ones!

Yvonne's tour was like having a friend meet us to show us around. Amsterdam is a beautiful city in which history, art and every shape or form of building stand literary shoulder to shoulder; often leaning on each other. Yvonne gave us a clear picture of the architecture, history, cultures, tolerance and neighborhoods as we walked along the canals and streets. She shared ideas on where to eat, how to get around and things to do. If you are looking for a casual, informative and friendly tour this is it.

Yvonne even followed up by email with additional information she thought would be helpful. I have gone on a lot of individual tours in Europe. She is the best guide our family has had - ever!

We booked a tour of Amsterdam with Yvonne to get an insider's view of the city and it was everything and more than we hoped for. She was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My grown children absolutely loved the time they spent with her as she was very attentive to everyone's interests and curiosities. She was a pleasure to be with and the highlight of our trip!

We sat at the lobby and she showed us a detail map of the city to explain before we started the tour. There were 4 of us on the tour. It was a great, educational, cheerful and informative tour.

Yvonne was great! She showed us spots we would not have found on our own. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam. Yvonne set a good pace for walking with enough stops for us to take photos and ask questions. When she was able to secure Ann Frank House tickets while on the tour she went way beyond our expectations. She was truly interested in us as tourists and our backgrounds. A great tour.

Yvonne designed the tour very interesting for us. She showed us many hidden detail on buildings and told us very interesting little stories about Amsterdam. All members of the group said afterwards unanimously how pleased they were with Yvonne's performance. Many, many thanks.

Met Yvonne on our 1st day in Amsterdam and had a great time. Not only did she show us the highlights of Amsterdam on our tour, she also set up the rest of our trip with restaurant recommendations and tips on how to use the buses and trains to get to other areas like Delft and Markem. Overall I would highly recommend.

Our group simply enjoyed the time we spent with Yvonne. She gave us a great tour of the old city of Amsterdam. She provided a great deal of information about the city, the history of the canals and buildings and answered all of our questions. She was respectful of our time frame but still allowed enough time to provide a fantastic tour. We would highly recommend Yvonne for your walking tour of Amsterdam.

Yvonne was a fantastic guide. She was really passionate about her city and enjoyed showing it to us. We booked on fairly short notice so there was no time to customize the tour before hand but she made sure that we were seeing the things we wanted to see before we went on the tour and continued to confirm while we were on the tour. She gave us lots of ideas of further things to do while we were in Amsterdam and even checked for tickets for us after our tour was over. It was an excellent tour.

Yvonne was wonderful! Very knowledgable, and willing to adapt the tour on the fly as she learned more about our interests. Also, she followed up on a question we asked during the tour and sent us the answer by email later - really above and beyond!

Yvonne was a warm and friendly guide who showed us the major highlights of Amsterdam and explained the key sites, some additional items and history. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 teenage girls, Yvonne patiently answered all our questions and gave time to take photos. We were a little late arriving to meet Yvonne, she kindly did not rush and stayed past the allocated time, thank you. Overall, very enjoyable and highly recommended to get an overview of Amsterdam.

I had been conversing with Yvonne for a couple of months before we arrived. She was extremely helpful. She went out of her way to understand our needs, wants desires. We had a real challenge with tickets for Anne Frank House and she went out of her way to make sure my daughter and I could gain access at the same time. The tour was amazing and very concise. Yvonne really knows Amsterdam extremely well and showed us things we would most likely not have seen had we been on our own. Highly recommend Yvonne!

Yvonne is an EXCELLENT tour guide. We've used this service many times in different cities, and they've all been good experiences, but she was the best we've had. Mapped out a plan for us at the beginning (with an actual map she brought), checked in with us along the way to make sure her tempo was right, very knowledgeable and made it all so interesting, and a great temperament and personality; Our whole family of 6 loved the tour and loved Yvonne!

Again we used Yvonne! last time was with my girlfriend, this time with family and she somehow made it a totally different, interesting experience...we are still talking about the tour. Saw many 'out of the way' places and she emailed us after the tour to give us more places we might like to go to. She is smart, loves what she does and is enjoyable to be with!

This was my second tour of Amsterdam with Yonne, this time with my husband who was a first time visitor to Amsterdam. Once again Yvonne did an amazing tour, that was tailored specifically to my husband's interests. She did an incredible job, an A+++ tour that we enjoyed immensely and even though it was my second tour of Amsterdam, I learned new information and insights! If you need a guide for Amsterdam you need to look no further than Yvonne!

She always spoke clearly and was very pleasant and welcoming. She is obviously proud of her home country and is also a good listener. Thanks Yvonne for a really fun time.

Our party of 10 people found this tour to an excellent introduction into the history and sights of Amsterdam. We could not have asked more of our guide, Yvonne. She was knowledgeable, one of the most personable guides we have ever had, and yet very professional in her efforts to show us the areas we were interested in. She went at our pace, stopping to discuss things that we found particularly interesting. I don't think there was one question she could not answer. I highly recommend this tour & guide
