Sean was an excellent tour guide. We felt like we spent an afternoon with a friend who shared lots of information about eating in Amsterdam as well as more general information. Great tips on where to eat and shared nice food ending in a drink at a distillery. Good value too

We loved this food tour. Although quite a bit of the foods we tried were free samples anyway, the tour guide was super knowledgeable. We went on our first full day of Amsterdam and learned a lot about the history, the areas we walked through, and of course the different foods!
Sean from Wisconsin was a WONDERFUL Foodie Tour Guide. The conversation and the walk through Amsterdam was informative and enjoyable. The cheese is wonderful, the fries were wonderful the, smoked eel my husband loved, I loved the waffles, alcohol, and sausage. Sean even recommended places to eat out for dinner while in Amsterdam. We went to the Rosenboom in a cute little alley way. Hands down a great meal for a great price.
Very well done! A must do if you want to experience the culture in Amsterdam in a more intimate and memorable way!
Our guide was terrific. He showed us some great little food places and even walked us through the grocery store which was very interesting.
Excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Were a small group so we had hid undivided attention and ended up getting a lot more from the experience than if in a larger group. He really went the extra mile for us. Thought I would not like the eel, but it was a great new taste.
I wish we had booked this tour earlier in our Amsterdam itinerary. Sean did a great job not just introducing us to local delicacies but also pointing out other attractions in the city. It was a fun couple of hours trying french fries, sausage, brined herring/eel which is actually quite good, and then rewarding ourselves with a stropwafel and ice cream and a drink at a local bar. It was fun, fast moving and very informative.
Easy to find starting location. Our guide was great and full of energy and lots of descriptions of the areas we were walking through as well as the background and history of the cultural reasons for the foods we were eating. We sampled foods from french fried potatoes, schnapps, cheese, herring, to hot dogs. No better way to learn the culture of a people than through their eating habits.
Just right, great walking tour. The guide provided even more than I expected. Not only good local food but conversation about houseboats, neighborhoods, and more.
The foods were just right, too. Holland had it's share of gourmet restaurants, but I was very interested in local, traditional foods.
Sean was friendly and very knowledgeable about Amsterdam, it's history, culture, and food. We didn't expect to eat as much as we did tip: don't eat beforehand. We tried all the local delicacies and discovered where the locals eat! There were only 4 of us and we had a ball.
Sean was just great and even sent us some photographs after the tour. This was a really enjoyable way to learn a bit about the Dutch and how their eating culture has been influenced over the years. Quite different and great fun. Sean is a font of knowledge and fun. Really enjoyed trying all the different foods, from smoked eels and herrings to pancakes and cheese. All ending up with delicious Bols in a really old drinking house. Thanks very much Sean and we seriously recommend this tour, especially if you have never been to Amsterdam before.
This food tour was amazing. Shawn was extremely knowledgeable about local history and took us to some fun little local places. This is a must-do walking tour.
Tour guide was very pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the variety of food.
Excellent. Even though the weather pretty ordinary (raining), the guide was very good, the food samples were all very good. A good thing on this tour was that there were only 4 people, so it was an advantage when it came to getting the samples, especially at the end! It was a good walk around Amsterdam.
Great guide and an very good insight into the food world of Amsterdam which was very interesting. Everything was perfect.
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!
excellent . our guide was both entertaining and knowledgeable . We would recommend this tour to anyone .
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.

Excellant. Our guide was amazing. it was great fun. Highly recommend it
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.
