“My wife and I took a private tour with Rachael on our first night in Amsterdam. It was the best decision we ever made for a vacation. Based on our communications, she tailored our tour to the details we gave her. A gifted conversationalist, Rachael guided us through three of the best breweries and bars close to the center of Amsterdam. We would not have found these places without her help. She didn’t just give us an excellent tour; she enabled us to get the most out of and appreciate one of the best cities in Europe. Don’t sleep on this one. Book it.”
“We recently had a private tour for 3. What I wanted was a personalised educational and fun tour to celebrate my (beer-loving) husband’s birthday and that is exactly what I got – I really felt like Rachael customised the tour for us and sought out beers that she thought we would love. She was also super helpful during the planning phase and a wealth of information for more recommendations in Amsterdam. This is not a beer tour run by regular tour guides with regular tour companies – this is a beer experience with someone who lives and breathes Amsterdam beer!!!”
“This is a once in a blue moon sort of experience! Rachael really knows her stuff and will make anyone feel welcome. She knew the history of all the bars and each bartender on a personal level. She took charge of catering the snacks and beers we had to each of our individual tastes. This is definitely a must even if you’re a rookie when it comes to craft beers!”
