Super fun and educational. Marc stepped in unexpectedly but he did it with a lot of passion. He cleverly avoided the St. Nicholas parade
Superleuk en leerzaam. Marc viel onverwachts in maar hij deed het met veel passie. Hij wist handig de sinterklaasintocht te mijden

Guide and tour were great. The only downside was that it wasn't clear where we had to wait for the guide. In the hardrock cafe they looked like they saw water burning. Outside on the green square there was no indication at all. In a strange city some kind of busstop or poster, I'm just mentioning something.
Gids en rondleiding waren prima.Het enige minpuntje was,dat het niet duidelijk was waar we op de gids moesten wachten.In het hardrock café keken ze alsof ze water zagen branden.Buiten op de groenplaats ook totaal geen aanwijzing.In een vreeemde stad toch een punt van aandacht.Een soort bushalte of poster,ik noem maar wat.

Ari is a motivated guide who speaks with passion about the city. He does this with great enthusiasm and also has answers to your questions. We were looking for a tram stop and he walked with us so we were on the right tram.
Ari is een gemotiveerde gids die met passie over de stad vertelt. Hij doet dit met veel enthousiasme en heeft ook antwoord op je vragen. Wij waren op zoek naar een tramhalte en is met ons meegelopen zodat wij op de juiste tram zaten.
