    We took part in 3 other Sademans tours in Amsterdam in the course of 4 days. All were excellent besides this one. While in other tours the guides were super knowledgeable and took great efforts to share information in points of interest, in this tour the guide rushed a 3 hour

    Hi Elik C, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for joining the tour in Amsterdam. We love to hear back from engaged travellers such as yourself, as your feedback helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect of us. We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met on this occasion. Whilst the tour’s route and content are listed on our website, the independent guides we work with may alter the tour in order to suit their own style and each group’s dynamic. We feel this adds a personal touch that makes tours promoted by SANDEMANs fresh and unforgettable, but it may also mean that the tour’s stories and sites are not in line with every guests’ preferences which, unfortunately, can be a difficult situation to avoid. While on the whole, the vast majority of guests are extremely satisfied, we do state on our promotional material that all the tours do differentiate from one another due to the individual nature of the guides we work with. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. All the best, The SANDEMANs Team

    My family of 5 went punctually to the meeting point for the bike tour at 2pm today. Met up with a lovely lady who helped us register. After the tourguide, a Russian-US man named Ifran (my dad did not manage to properly catch his name), arrived; he kept suggesting to us to change

    Our worst experience ever! Please avoid any service from them. We book a country side bike tour online and pay the fees. We reach the spot 15 mins before the scheduled time. All good so far. Then just seconds before the start, our tour guide tells us that he cannot take us as

    Hello BobbyLuvs2Travel, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for choosing us in Amsterdam. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. We regret that we were not able to offer you the tour you booked in Amsterdam. It is indeed uncommon that we cancel a tour due to lack of participants. However, as the guides we work with are freelancers, in some very rare cases, they may decide not to go ahead with the tour if the group is too small. This situation was very unfortunate and I understand that this must have been incredibly upsetting for you and your group, and may well have caused further disruption to your itinerary. In case you have not been offered a full refund for the tour cancellation yet, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at violeta@neweuropetours with your booking details and I will be very happy to personally take care of the process. We have already shared your feedback with our operations team and hope that we can make it up to you in the future in any of our cities and that we may show you this was an exception to a usually excellent level of service. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team

    Our tour guides were very good and attentive. We traveled outside the city mostly on bike paths. We returned during rush hour and it was a bit tricky getting accustomed to Dutch cycling commuting. The ride is mostly flat with a few bridges to climb over. My wife is not a strong

    Free walking tour with Ilya ran significantly overtime, and he put a fair bit of pressure on the tip. On the tour he sold me on the bike tour, then was present when I bought my ticket. Get to the site of the bike tour today, nice and early, ticket checked, then told by Ilya the

    Hello jacksonm9696, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for joining the tour of Amsterdam. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. We are concerned to learn that we did not meet your expectations. The Free Tour is described as such because there is no maximum or minimum amount any guest is expected to tip; the idea is that every guest should feel comfortable to tip in such a way that reflects their budget and what they thought the tour was worth. Any guest who does not wish to tip may decline to do so, and the guides we work with are aware that pressuring guests to tip goes against the Free Tour philosophy. We are truly sorry if your experience did not reflect that. This is not only detrimental to your enjoyment of the tour but undoes much of the hard work of ourselves and the other guides we work with to promote the concept of a free tour. About the issue with the Bike Tour tickets, I am truly sorry you had this experience and would like to apologise on behalf of SANDEMANs NEW Amsterdam. If you were kind enough to reach out to me via email (violeta@neweuropetours.eu) I will be very happy to look closer into your case and ask for further compensation to our local team. Thank you once again for reviewing us on TripAdvisor and for joining the tour. We hope to see you again soon on other tours, so we may show you that this experience does not reflect the usual standard of service. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team
