Booking FAQ

Why are certain dates unavailable in the calendar?2023-05-06T14:29:21+02:00

We accept booking requests up to 2 days prior to the tour date. In case you want to make a reservation on a shorter notice, you can contact us directly and see if we have availability.

In Amsterdam, there are no private tours on Saturdays & Sunday during high season (May – August). During these months, we look forward to welcome you from Monday to Friday.

If we shorten the 2-hour tour, do I get a discount?2023-05-06T14:41:27+02:00

No. Happy to explain;

Our guides are paid per given tour, not at an hourly rate. For this reason, we can’t give a discount if the tour is shortened or altered in any other way. We believe that our prices are fair and competitive, plus the guides also have to travel to & from the meeting point and are unable to take other shifts on the half-day of your tour.

We advise not to shorten the tours, two hours for a walking tour is a perfect time to get a quality tour at a relaxed pace. If you still desire to do it in less time, we are happy to give you the best tour possible in the requested time slot.

 

Can I get a discount or commission for booking a tour?2022-12-19T05:26:50+01:00

Instead of giving discounts, we offer our tours at competitive prices. We are transparent about these costs; they are required to cover our expenses for offering a quality tour.

We don’t work with commissions, as an independent tour company we work without affiliates, sponsors or commission-based travel agents. This is how we keep our prices competitive and our recommendations honest.

Explore The City Of Windmills & Tulips

No visit to the Netherlands is complete, without having captured a traditional windmill and learning about the national flower: the tulip. Witness the iconic ‘De Adriaan’ mill and let us tell you how our symbolic flower is connected to bitcoins.

Discover ‘Little Amsterdam’

An old city at heart, Haarlem is perhaps more authentically Dutch than its big, cosmopolitan brother. On our tour, we will cover some of the city’s prominent landmarks:

  • Grote Markt (Grand Market), the square where we start & finish our tour and where traders from all around have shaken hands for over 300 years.
  • The grande St. Bavo Church, a Gothic peace of architecture that dates back to the 13th century.
  • With Haarlem being a very green city, we visit the oldest courtyard of the city, tucked away in an unassuming building complex.
  • The Jopen Church, which has been transformed into a beer brewery.
  • And many more!
