Extremely Pleasurable and Enlightening
Aug 2019
Over a period of about 6 hours we covered a massive amount of ground from the red light district to the museum district and everything in between.
Our guide Lawrence had a huge knowledge of the city with some added extras. Being foodies, his experience as a restaurant cook was invaluable. Visited a kitchen shop that had ever gadget imaginable, a out of the way cheese shop and even had lunch in the restaurant he worked at where the food and service was excellent.
The whole tour worked out better than expected and gave us a real in depth view of Amsterdam.
