5/5 Kendra Rocks

"A superior way to spend the dreaded "first afternoon after the transtlantic flight". Kendra kept things moving briskly, while offering a genuine view of Amsterdam's history and current vibe."

Connecting great guides with smart travelers

We believe in supporting our local communities and are committed to giving a voice to self-employed guides who have chosen Amsterdam as their home. By ensuring that every fluent English-speaking guide represents our unique style of mixing history and storytelling while maintaining their own personality and flair, we’ve become one of the most popular tour companies in the world. Helping superb independent guides connect with thousands of travelers a day, we give these local freelancers the opportunity to inform and entertain you, and they employ us to spread the news about this great concept.

How can a FREE Tour be one of the best in Europe?

The answer is simple: because the informed, entertaining, and unforgettable self-employed guides on their FREE Tours work on a tips-only basis, the highest quality is guaranteed! They’ll never pressure you to tip – even though the guides receive no compensation from our host cities for the FREE tours they provide. We believe that if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveler. Even though the guides appreciate tips, your applause means so much more, and they are happy to welcome you as their guest!
Participation in tours promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe is strictly on a voluntary basis. Neither SANDEMANs NEW Europe, nor the self-employed freelance guides who are the providers of the tours promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe, will be held responsible in any way for injuries to body or property incurred during tours. The tour guides reserve the right to deny participation in any tour, to any person, for any reason. Thank you for your understanding.
