Sean was exceptional. We were the only two on the tour. There was one no show. So it was extra special to be given that much attention and insight into the unique history, current state, and food tastings that Sean provided us. He went well out of his way to explain Dutch social culture and the latest up and coming cuisines. I would highly recommend this tour.

Had a great experience. Sean was really informative but also charismatic in a way that made the tour all the better. Instead of just dishing out information and facts he made it enjoyable to walk around the city and he was inclusive of everyone in the tour with his sharp wit and funny jokes. Thanks, Sean!

Food is a huge part of any culture, as is true for The Netherlands. We sampled some tasty cuisine (best fries ever!) and not-so-tasty cuisine (the herring was out of season and terrible). Our guide brought us into one of the grocery stores to show us popular foods, etc., which I found interesting. The guys? Not so much. It was the least favorite part of the tour for them. One of the high points was lunch at La Place, which was a sea of beautifully presented foods. Overall, I found the tour interesting and fun.

Our tour guide, Fanny, was absolutely fantastic. It turns out she is an Art/History major, so food was among her interests. We got an amazing tour or Amsterdam, along with great history and great tasting of the best French fries in the world, sausages, unbelievable Edam cheeses, and the most delicious raw herring. What a gem of a tour! We would recommend it to everyone. By the way, the tour includes a beer tasting, but we declined.

Our guide, Davinia was fantastic. She has a great personality and interspersed the food tour with lots of information about Amsterdam. She answered all of our questions with enthusiasm. She even took the time to ensure we had a taxi booked on the day we were leaving. We learned a lot about Amsterdam and it's history along with some of it's food culture. Well worth the time and money - I highly recommend this tour.

The tour guide is fantastic! He is an American who has lived in Amsterdam for the past 7 years, knows everything there is to know, and happy to share it with you. Smart, funny, knowledgeable and witty, pure pleasure to be around him. Great pace of the tour, appropriate for adults as well as the kids, by far one of the greatest tours we've had.

Outstanding! Sean/Shawn, the tour guide was personable and knowledgeable. It was a 2-1/2 hour walking tour but we took breaks when we taste the foods so we were not walking constantly. We tasted favorite foods of the Dutch, visited cheese shops (Reypenaer artisan cheeses were delicious) and we visited specialty markets (Le Place) and regular supermarkets and Sean explained how the Dutch eat, what they like and why. Shawn also made recommendations for lunches and dinners. He shared a wonderful coffee shop and cookie store with us. All of his recommendations were great. This is a must do if you are in Amsterdam and interested in food!!!!

Really enjoyed the food tour. Sean was fun and informative. Unfortunately it was very rainy which held up the tour some and Sean had to leave us at the liquor tasting shop, saying that the owner would fill us in..........but he did not. However we had a nice glass of beer which was included. Good information and lots of yummy tastings.

An excellent morning spent with Sean who though not technically a local lives here and has a wealth of knowledge about the city and the way it's people eat. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and tasting some fabulous foods.

Sambal fries and stroopwafels and profferjes and cheese. Yum! No herring (as it was out of season). We stopped by a grocery store too (I thought for maybe a little longer than necessary). It was convenient though as we knew to stop by it again the next day for pre-packaged sandwiches for our Country bike tour! Sean answered any questions and made a couple suggestions for us apart from the tour. He steered us the right way. I would of liked maybe a little more historical tidbits and suggestions on where to have a good "not so touristy" sit-down meal. Overall we enjoyed the tour.
