As opposed to all other tour agency’s we could organise any tailor made private tour for you. We know Amsterdam by heart. Depending on your personal preferences we could take you along the most important Amsterdam sights, but a tour along the most famous bars & clubs would be another option just as well. Or we’d organise a romantic candle light diner canal tour for you.
