Emilie was great tour guide. Very informative. Spent time conversing with my children and made it interesting for them. Pictures made it that much more important to see the history in that picture. Thank-you for a great experience.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

It wasn't a fast pace. It was walking on gravel and the beach. We walked around the American Cemetery also. So walking probably a mile in total. Email MAGALI and let her know your concerns. She will be specific to you needs... More
