Amsterdam Walking Tour

Learn about Amsterdam's history during your walking tour

Meet your guide in Dam Square to start your morning walking tour of Amsterdam. Begin with a stroll around the historical center, filled with inviting side streets, perfectly preserved 17th-century gabled houses and peaceful tree-lined canals filled with traditional Dutch houseboats.

View the Royal Palace, the famous Dutch East Indies company, the Begijnhof courtyard with its hidden church, the Amsterdam Museum and the old city gates. See the homes of famous historical figures as you walk by the Anne Frank House, Descartes' House and the Rembrandt House Museum.

Wander the alleys of the notorious Red Light District (de Wallen), walk down the busy shopping street of Kalverstraat, and pass by the many upscale art galleries, speciality shops and restaurants of the Jordaan district.

As you walk, your guide will bring to life more than 800 years of Amsterdam's history, arts, culture and architecture, from the city’s humble beginnings on the Amstel River to the glorious Golden Age to today. Your 3-hour tour concludes at Westerchurch, giving you the rest of the afternoon to continue exploring on your own.

An excellent walking tour. Terry was an exceptional guide who mixed his outstanding knowledge with a dry sense of humour. The small number in our tour made the whole experience very personal and so everyone was able to be involved in the conversation as were strolled through Amsterdam.

There's no better way to start your history lesson on Amsterdam than by taking a walking tour through the older parts of the city, starting at Dam Square. Our tour guide, originally from Texas, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. We were even able to slip into a pub near the Rembrandt Museum for some coffee when it decided to rain on us...bring good walking shoes and don't be afraid to ask questions!

This was the best walking tour we have ever had! We learned more with Terry in 3 hours than we did in 5 days on our previous trip to Amsterdam several years ago. Terry tailored the tour to fit our interests. He is a wealth of information and has a great Irish sense of humor. Would highly recommend this tour - you won't be disappointed!
