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!!!!
Very nice tour, knowledgeable and friendly guide! Tasty food samples, welcoming shop owners, a lot of information and having a good time! Just do it!

Loved this tour. The young woman who was our tour guide was adorable, charming and spoke perfect English. We tasted lots of local foods and got a wonderful tour of the city. She knew not just about the food, but told about the history of Amsterdam. She knows the city well and offered recommendations for restaurants. We would definitely do this tour again!
A great tour leader, giving us an excellent overview of the Amsterdam areas we visited. The content of the tour is, however, not suitable for people with a more advanced knowledge of and interest in food. It was - for example - an unpleasant surprize to be shown prepacked supermarket food as an example of Duch food! However, still a memorable experience!
Knowledgeable guide, but would have liked more private food stops and less grocery store narration. Don't take us to shops where open food is available to the public, as our tasting. We've been on many food tours (New York, Miami, etc.) and this was not high on our list.
Would not recommend. We spent a lot of time in a supermarket where we were told what the Dutch eat, very little time eating good food. It was fun to try raw herring and smoked eel.
The tour was very disappointing, plus our guide got sick during the tour and we had only 1/2 a tour. We went to a frites shop and had delicious frites, than to walked around the red light district to a herring shop to taste herring. The guide was not sure of her answers so she suggested sources for us to find the answers to our questions. We next went to a micro brewery and bought ourselves beer, and went to the cheese shop where our guide became ill and we ended the tour by buying ourselves some cheese to take back to the hotel. The tour was disorganized and our guide seemed very new to the whole tour guiding process.
