Amsterdam Private Tours and Amsterdam Small Group tours

Amsterdam Private and Small Group Guided Tours

This welcoming and laid-back city is famous for Dutch masterpieces, tilting gabled architecture, UNESCO world canals, and more.
Amsterdam's canals and narrow houses offer echoes of its Golden Age in the 17th century, when explorers, investors, and traders led the city into a tremendous boom, and Dutch Old Masters painted the artworks that have captivated generations since. In more recent years, artists, immigrants, and social progressives have transformed Amsterdam into a forward-thinking and artistic metropolis. Immerse yourself in the glory of Amsterdam with Context's private and small group walking tours.

Sabry has an impressively broad knowledge about the Jewish experience in Europe and is an effective teacher. I really enjoyed spending time with him. It was a rainy day, but that did not dampen our enthusiasm. Context is very well organized and their guides are always prepared with a wealth of information. Highly recommended!
Lora was up to the typically high standards I have come to expect and enjoy with Context docents. Engaging, deeply knowledgeable, personable and charming, Laura braved the rain and high winds to take me on a highly educational and enjoyable walk around the city centre of Amsterdam.
This tour got off to a rough start, as my first tour guide didn't show up, which was a Context Tour first. It was also my first experience with a private tour, which I got as a Christmas present. Ultimately, the tour was great! The weather was awful, but I still got to see parts of Amsterdam with Belina I definitely wouldn't have either seen or noticed by myself --and I was able to make suggestions about what I wanted to see, while Belina gave everything a story and a setting (trying not to use the word "context"). Since I'm now a veteran of one private tour, my comment would be to give more information about how much customization is possible. There was a church I really wanted to see and Belina worked it into the itinerary. I think everyone was feeling badly about the no-show in the morning, so my "replacement" tour went long--which I appreciated but I wasn't sure if I should have been concerned about the time. We started the tour immediately, but I would have appreciated some sort of itinerary, so I knew what to expect. Overall, since I was traveling alone, the Context Tours allowed me to meet some really interesting people and have some really interesting dialogue. That was a bonus that I didn't think too much about when I was deciding on a tour.
