My family and I did a private walking tour with Mark on our recent visit to Amsterdam. What a great introduction to such a fun city! Mark gave us the historical perspective, as well as a current perspective, about life in the city and various fun things to know. We really appreciated his willingness to orient us to everything that Amsterdam has to offer. We ended our tour at a local beer bar (Proefokal Arendsnest I believe?) which was awesome. We will absolutely recommend Mark and the That Dam Guide team for friends heading to Amsterdam in the future. Mark, you're the best and we really appreciated your time with us!

Cannot say enough about how excellent Mark is as a tour guide. This is the best way to get to know the city and its rich history and culture. Our time exlporing the city with him was a highlight of our visit to Amsterdam. Outstanding!

My 75 year old Mom and I enjoyed a 3 hour tour with Mark in late September. The pace was perfect (not too slow; not too fast) - plus we stopped for a coffee/beer/sit down break. Mark was an excellent guide! Funny, informative, and all around personable gent. We learned a great deal and picked up some fine pointers for the remainder of our trip. I recommend doing this type of tour near the beginning of your trip to get a lay of the land. Definitely go with the SMALL group tour!

Lee was a knowledgeable and wonderful guide through the city. We went on our first day in Amsterdam and feel like we have a great sense of the city layout. We learned interesting history and Lee entertained us with great stories about the history and character of the city. She also gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip and we will have to stop by the Cat Museum!!
