Alette's tour was a highlight of our weeklong visit to Amsterdam! She provided the necessary historical context for our walk with useful maps and we visited sites we would have missed (including an incredible early 20 C. Art Nouveau marriage hall).
My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with Lora today. It was a treat following her along the streets and waterways of Amsterdam. The tour was packed with interesting information and she answered all of our questions. She is a natural born educator. Lucky us. Thank you Lora and thank you Context Tours.
Our guide Lora was excellent! We found the starting location difficult to find. We went right by our hotel. So, it would have been great to start there, or to start at the Dam, rather than an obscure alley off the Dam.
