Hi, Carol. What would you like to know about this attraction? When I went on the City Free Walking Tour, Rocco took us to a church where a significant religious event happened. Can you tell me the name of the church in Amsterdam, and the name of the event? Thank you, Carol

We emailed them and got our names on their list for the day and time we wanted before we left for our trip. I found their email on the website. It was very easy, and the person that responded to my email was very helpful. :)

It's free. You need to book a day in advance. Most people tip $10-20 US per person, more if small group.
