What other guests say about our tours and locals
Such a fun night!
"We had a great time with Mark and his friends. The pancakes were amazing and the company was just as good. We talked a lot about the city and its people and at the end of the evening we had a full list of what places we wanted to visit in Amsterdam. Mark's home is beautiful and cozy and we felt very welcomed. Thank you for the great experience! "JuliannaAbout local MarkAmsterdam, February 2023

"Salome and Ian were so much fun, their passion and enthusiasm were contagious, and we learned so much from them while tasting all kinds of delicious chocolates from all over the world! This was one of the highlights of our trip, I would recommend it to anybody."DanielleAbout local IanAmsterdam, April 2022
Very nice way to meet locals
"This was a birthday gift for our daughter that is new in Amsterdam so that she can meet locals. She loved the experience, the people and the pancakes."LeonieAbout local MarkAmsterdam, February 2022
Very fun and informative cooking lesson
"We booked the cooking class for my partner who wanted to enjoy an authetic Indian cooking class. Twisa personalised the menu of dishes to be cooked to our preference. Twisa is a very warm person and attentive host, we enjoyed chatting with her while cooking the food. We'd recommend the workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to cook specific Indian dishes or just wants to cook to learn the fundamentals of Indian cooking!"ZenoAbout local TwisaAmsterdam, November 2021
Awesome experience, must-do in Amsterdam!
"This was so much more than a chocolate tasting alone! It was like meeting new friends. The chocolate we tasted was from another level, I never knew there was so much to know about chocolate. They knew every story behind every chocolate we tried. On top of that Ian & Salomé mixed the chocolate tasting with stories on Amsterdam's history and even gave some great tips on what to do in the area after. This was the most local experience I've had while visiting. Can def. recommend!"BriAbout local IanAmsterdam, November 2019
Laughter and Indian food
"We absolutely loved spending time with Twisa at here beautiful home. Besides guiding us how to cook authentic Indian dishes, she shared personal stories, which made her very relatable. We will certainly stay friends. "JanAbout local TwisaAmsterdam, October 2019
Best kept secret among friends in town!
"We came from the middle of nowhere Montana to learn the best kept secret between Mark and his friends, old and new. Our two sons 8 & 10 had been watching pancake videos on youtube a month before the trip. They were well versed and had set their expectations high for the smells, tastes and yummy goodness to enjoy. I can tell you that Mark did not let us down. His crafting, skill and knowledge of the pancake oozed with every delicious bite. You will get what you pay for, that is for sure. What you get for free was the best part! His friends both local and long distance made for some very good conversation. The enrichment of that social cultural interaction combined with the easy going atmosphere of his wonderful cats and music to listen to from his many LP 33 1/3 records to pick from. I spent over 20 minutes looking thru his collection and chose a Beatles classic to set the mood for food, fun and a all around good time. I highly recommend you take this adventure on if you are fortunate enough to do so, we are glad we did."RobertAbout local MarkAmsterdam, October 2019
