I joined the tour randomly on a rainy Easter Monday. There are lots of free tours offered in Amsterdam as a big tourist destination, but I wanted one that felt more personal and Free Dam did not disappoint. Sebastian, our guide, was informative, entertaining, and gave a pretty comprehensive summary of places to go, practices to be aware of, and just where and what everything is. I can't recommend it more.

I showed up to the tour spontaneously, not knowing that it's required for all tours to have maximum sizes of groups, so it is still highly recommended to register before attending a tour. They may still have room for you since there are no shows, but it's just good to be aware of the process.

Sergio's love for his native city (yes, he's Dutch) is contagious. His quirky, fact-filled humorous tour takes you behind the scenes into the real Amsterdam. You'll never see three hours pass so quickly.

Great tour by Sebastian who was really informative and personable to all. We learned a lot especially about “Tolerance” which was a great message that we could all learn. Good pace and timing and we covered most of the city centre historical sites and events. Great way to learn about the city and how to get around. Highly recommended.

We booked this walking tour of Amsterdam on our first day in the city. Our tour guide was Suzanne, who was very knowledgeable, friendly and gave us a great overview of the history and culture of Amsterdam. Would highly recommend Freedam Tours.
