Super props to Dominique! But she's not an employee of Amsterdamsel Tours. (I take pride in paying lovely guides like her a proper wage for their hard work btw!) Very very glad you got a good experience in any case.

Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

Amsterdamsel Tour staff -- We 4 US 60+adults arrive Amsterdam AM, Wed, 13 May (after deboarding from Scenic Tours riverboat, we will be moved to Doubletree by Hilton near central rail station sometime in the AM on the 13th.) We are interested in a private walking tour for our group 13th late morning or early afternoon, meeting at our hotel after we have placed our bags in storage at the hotel for later check-in. Alternatively we would consider a 14 may tour beginning in AM to also include a a prepaid ticket visit to Anne Frank House followed by walking tour. Please let us know of costs and availability.
