I was with a group of friends and had not personally booked the trip. I had no great wish to do it, was simply going along as it had been arranged. I really did not think the 90 minutes of our tour would fly by so fast. At the end, Dominique gave us some personalised recommendations for eating out and things to do in Amsterdam.
In contrast to what has been said in some previous reviews, there was no mention of a tip from the guide (we all chipped in as she was so good).

We had a great tour with Dom. She told us so many interesting facts about the city we never would have learnt on a main stream tour. We could take our own food and drink, our group were awesome. Dom was really engaging and encouraged us to ask questions so we learnt all sorts of cool facts. 100% recommend! You won't regret it.

We arrived late, with 2 pizzas from a nearby takeout (‘VIA’ for anyone who is interested) and 2 bottles of wine. We were greeted warmly and the other 2 from our party who sadly decided not to come (due to the weather and the fact they’d be dragged on a walking tour for over 3 hours prior) were politely offered a refund. Pino was our captain and he manoeuvred the dingy around the sometimes narrow to wide canals expertly. He was lovely, knowledgeable and a delight to accompany our group on a not-so-warm Easter Day. Would recommend for anyone who doesn’t want earphones shoved in their ears with a boring recording of Dutch culture. Also for anyone who wants chilled BYOB ‘bring your own anything’

The perfect way to see the city. I would recomment taking the tour at the beginning of your trip as it will give you a good backdrop to the city and provides lots of ideas to fill the remainder of your trip. Our captain Pino was fun, helpful and filled with knowledge! Definitely worth it!
