Alette was extremely knowledgeable and knew her history and is clearly very proud of her city (and rightly so!) It was a great tour and so good to get to know Amsterdam better. We will be back!
Our "Dutch Golden Age" history tour with Giorgio was a real pleasure. Giorgio loves Amsterdam and knows the city's history well. We learned all kinds of interesting things about Amsterdam's past, and Giorgio being an architect, he pointed out the peculiarities of the buildings -- things we would never have noticed on our own. We were fortunate to get our tour on our first day in Amsterdam. At the coffee break Giorgio gave us a map and circled all the places he thought were worth visiting in the city. We visited several of these places and they were all wonderful. We recommend taking this tour.
Alette is an excellent guide. She was able to clearly convey her knowledge, but more importantly she was very charming and engaging. Look for her lectures at Context Learning as well.
