Walking Tour Recommendations

In Amsterdam for three days in late July with my wife and my sister. Will go to see museums on our own but thought a good walking tour the first day would help us orient ourselves. Any recommendations on companies to contact? Thank you.

We did a 3-hour walking tour of Amsterdam with That Dam Guide and enjoyed it a lot. Also enjoyed a small-boat canal cruise with Those Dam Boat Guys. Have a great trip!

Thanks for all the great suggestions. Patti, you were right about Dennis booking up quickly. We may still be able to work something out with him but not sure. That Dam Guide is our fall back. Thanks again.

We booked That Dam Guide for a mid-March tour. Reviews looked overwhelmingly positive and they’ve been really prompt with replying to my questions. My husband is hearing impaired so we specifically searched for a small group walking tour. I’ll post our experience here after our Mar 12 tour if you want.
