We were able to arrange this private tour very quickly, which was fantastic. And, we learned interesting things about Amsterdam from Alette that have given us new appreciation for the city she calls home and that we all enjoy visiting. In our remaining time there, we noticed how much we appreciate how the city’s history has made it what is has become and what it stands for. Now more things about the city make sense and our deeper sense of wonder makes us want to come back and enjoy more exploring and wandering.
Excellent tour by Giorgio. He masterfully placed in context the way Amsterdam's neighbourhoods, architecture and history interconnect. His wonderful recognition of the sequence of events in the Dutch Golden Age and its relation to events today was just one of so many highlights of this walk. This was a terrific tour!
I thought her tour was wonderful. She had a dry sense of humor, really seemed to strike the right note about the history of Amsterdam and the region, particularly during the time period.
