Amazing tour
for Henk ’s tour (LGBT History Tour Amsterdam)
It is my first time in a LGBT tour ever and I found it very interesting. Henk has a lot of knowledge about the city, history in the city and LGBT hystory. It was just amazing to hear him tell stories in different places of the city from the LGBT perspective. And having a beer with him and the other participants at the end and share stories was just the perfect ending.Totally recommended!
Excellent tour, knowledgeable guide
for Henk ’s tour (LGBT History Tour Amsterdam)
I took the LGBT history walking tour with Henk. He is an excellent guide, very friendly and knowledgeable about Amsterdam, and passionate about history. He took me and my friend to some interesting sights in the city center and gave us information about the sights that we would not have found on our own. Afterward, Henk took us to a great local bar where we continued chatting. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent Tour and Friendly Guide!
for Henk ’s tour (LGBT History Tour Amsterdam)
I took this afternoon tour in May 2019. Henk is welcoming and very knowledgeable. The group size was perfect and the tour is just the right amount of time. It's a great way to learn about Dutch history, culture, and why Amsterdam was a leader in LGBT rights. Henk will tell you about the brave men and women through history who fought (and sometimes died) for their rights and show you the places where important events happened. It's a great tour for all, straight or gay. Be sure to sign up for Henk's LGBT walking tour of Amsterdam!
