We were lucky to have a private tour ( 4) what stands out for me was the type of tour , it wasn’t a typical this is x this is y building and this happened in x year what Thomas did was tell us about current affairs and history and invited participation and imparted a vast array of topics . I 100% feel we had a very positive experience and our knowledge and understanding of Amsterdams history and current situation is better than when we started . Very friendly guy invited and answered any question and subject so glad we were lucky enough to choose Thomas. . Thank you
