    Great tour with Rajaa. She has a different perspective on many things which made the day fascinating. Have her take you for coffee and apple pie, it was delicious.

    I highly recommend City Unscripted if you’re looking to book a tour and experience Amsterdam to its fullest. I don’t know what I would’ve done without my guide, Stéphane, he was so helpful, and he really wanted to make sure I took full advantage of my time there. The tour was a highlight of my time in Europe. Not only did we pack in as much as we could during our time together, but he was also extremely personable and flexible with what I wanted to do and see. If you’re looking for an experience and enjoy people with a good sense of humour, Stéphane is your guy! Many thanks to City Unscripted and Stéphane for the memorable experience. Camille

    He clearly knew the history of every place we went. Did not overburden us with facts. Had lot of local information about the Amsterdam as we walked.

    Anna is a great ambassador to this city. Although her adopted city- sincerely seems to love it. Things went so smooth and easy. Experienced so much in such a relatively short period of time. The trip was longer than scheduled and she accommodated all my interests. Thanks to C U and especially Anna.
