Walking tour of Alkmaar, highly recommend
May 2019 • Couples
Jennifer,
Kudos to you for a great walking tour. Your personality suits this venture just right. You made us feel like family as we walked the narrow streets of Alkmaar. We had a great feel for the city and did enjoy the deliciouis Dutch mini pancakes (sorry, forgot their names) that you recommended after the tour. Glad your kids enjoyed their Kings Day extras!

Warm regards,
Kathy and David

So Much History in Only 2 Hours !
Apr 2019 • Friends
Thanks Jen your walking tour of Alkmaar was a delightful experience. You are such a warm and welcoming guide who makes your guests feel relaxed and informed. Your attention to detail is exceptional and the ‘secret’ local tips invaluable including the yummy rhubarb sorbet at the Ice Cream shop.

Apr 2019 • Family
Great tour with Jennifer and daughter Izzy. Jen told us stories, gave us history of the region and walked us down streets, alleyways, and along canals that we would not have seen on our own. A very delightful afternoon. Absolutely a must do if in Alkmaar and if you have a ten or and eleven year old see if Izzy can join the tour....she is great with kids.

Walking Tour of Alkmaar with Jennifer by Alkmaar Tours
Apr 2019 • Couples
Jennifer is a very friendly and very knowledgeable on the history of Alkmaar. The walk took us to lanes that we might not have noticed. We had passed by the Bullet House for a couple of days without realising it. Loved all the stories that she told us on the tour and the special favorites to look out for.

Lovely walk, beautiful town rich in history. Really loved Alkmaar.

Highly recommended to go with Jennifer of Alkmaar Tours :)

Perfect way to see Alkmaaar!
Mar 2019 • Friends
A fantastic tour of Alkmaar with a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide!

The tour is a great way to see Alkmaar, learn about the town’s history and it was a real pleasure to spend a few hours in Jennifer’s company.

The tour takes in the main tourist sights that you’d expect, but we especially liked the more quirky and interesting buildings/ points of interest, including the local food and drink recommendations!

I would highly recommend this tour for all ages and those wanting a more bespoke experience than larger group tours provide.

First morning in Alkmaar
Oct 2018 • Couples
Jennifer was our neighbor when we visited Alkmaar, and this turned out to be a stroke of good luck for us. She is a lively, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. She conducts small groups, so she can be flexible once she understands the interests of her tourists. She knows the history and is good at pointing out architectural and other structural details that might be easily missed on a first glance. Alkmaar is not all cheese! But do watch out for the bikes.

Wonderful introduction to Alkmaar!
Oct 2018 • Friends
This tour was a delight. Jennifer was lively, very informative and enthusiastic. She was sensitive to the needs of our group and flexible when scheduling differences came up. We learned so much about the history of Alkmaar and the Netherlands while enjoying the beauty of the town--and Jennifer made it all interesting and fun. Her sense of humor and warmth added to the experience. I would recommend this tour very highly.
