We use to do Sandemas Free Walking tours in all cities that we visit and we always enjoy a lot! 😊 But unfortunately this time was very disappointed. The tour with the guide Jeremiah, was very boring, he didn’t catch the attention of the public, just doing no funny jokes and

Hello Flávia R, Thank you for your honest feedback about your recent tour of Amsterdam. We always appreciate it when guests take the time to let us know about their experience so that we have an opportunity to improve our service. We are sorry to hear that the Free Tour was not to your liking. Each freelance guide we work with has their own style and personality, which we encourage them to express on their tours; it’s what keeps tours promoted by SANDEMANs unique and interesting across our network. All the guides are very passionate and enthusiastic individuals but, unfortunately, their personal tour style does not always match every individual guest’s tastes. It is regrettable to hear that in this instance you felt that Jeremiah’s style was not in line with your preferences for a city tour. On the other hand, the Free Tour is described as such because there is no maximum or minimum amount any guest is expected to tip; the idea is that every guest should feel comfortable to tip in such a way that reflects their individual budget and what they thought the tour was worth. Any guest who does not wish to tip may decline to do so, and the guides we work with are aware that pressuring guests to tip goes against the Free Tour philosophy. We are truly sorry if your experience did not reflect that. This is not only detrimental to your enjoyment of the tour but undoes much of the hard work of ourselves and the other guides we work with to promote the concept of a free tour. Thank you once again for reviewing us on TripAdvisor and for joining the tour. We hope to see you again soon on other tours, so we may show you that this experience does not reflect the usual standard of service. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team

Hi GregorioM170, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for choosing us in Amsterdam. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. The Boat Tour of Amsterdam consists of a 1-hour journey through Amsterdam’s best canal route. You will hear from an expert local guide, relax with a glass of wine, beer or soft drink (you cannot purchase drinks, because you have x1 drink per person already included in the ticket price), see some of Amsterdam’s most amazing houseboats and bridges, take incredible pictures from an open-top boat and enjoy the relaxed and personal experience of a small vessel. This is not only specified on our website, but also in our printed marketing materials. We apologize for the misunderstanding and we hope it did not spoil your enjoyment of the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. Kind Regards, The SANDEMANs Team
