    Fantastic

    Vanessa was great, she was very friendly, she made the tour fun and interesting. I would recommend doing this tour at the start of the trip to Amsterdam as she shows you some parts of the city which you will want to explore more which you won't find on other tours.

    friendly, informative and really interesting

    I would really recommend a private tour instead of a group because you learn a lot more. Vanessa Barberà was a wonderful tour guide and very knowledgeable of the city. She taught us a lot of interesting things we wouldn't have known otherwise. I would highly recommend booking Vanessa for a tour guide.
