Small group tours and private tours company. It is run by me, Terry, and I do most of the tours. I have built up a top class reputation over the years for my storytelling skills and knowledge. Taking a WOWTour is like having a friend showing you round their favourite parts of the city.

My husband and I took this walking tour at the beginning of our visit in Amsterdam. We met our guide, Tyler, in front of the stock exchange building. The statue of the bull is no longer there. I mention this because that is the meeting point. Waited for Tyler, the guide, in front of building. Tyler is a fellow American... More

We spent a delightful 3 hours with WOW Tours guide, Sean Jendlin, who was engaging and knew his way around Amsterdam's historic city center. Sean gave us not only the historical facts but provided helpful context and entertained us with stories, both important and trivial (and humorous), all along the way. We learned why "WOW" Tours is aka the a... More

Our group loved this tour, Terry our guide is a natural story teller. He showed us parts of Amsterdam that we would never have discovered without him and his inside knowledge brought the city alive, the only disappointing part of this tour was when it ended. Terry even gave us directions to last wooden pub in Amsterdam which turned out... More

Loved the tour! Terry was excellent! We didn't want the tour to end. Highly recommend if you want an informative, engaging and concise tour of Amsterdam. A little over three hours and Terry was generous with his time. Would definitely do again.

We were only 4 people in total on that day and Terry was amazing in terms of information provided, professionalism, attentiveness and humor. We visited a lot of places including the Rembrandt's Guild, Begijnhof courtyard with its hidden church, the Amsterdam Museum, red light district,... More

Terry O'Leary, Owner/Main Guide, will give you the most wonderful walking tour of Amsterdam! If you want a knowledgable, well informed but humorous guide - Terry knows it all and makes it fun to see Amsterdam at a delightful pace!

Terry gave us an excellent tour! Everything was very interesting. He obviously knows a lot, but was able to relate such information in an engaging manner. Conditions were not ideal. It rained throughout the afternoon, but he remained upbeat and positive, and recognizing that we were tired of wandering through the rain, he added some indoor stops. One of our... More

I've been on more than 12 walking tours in New York and London and the Amsterdam Walking Tour with Terry was by far the best!!!

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
