What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Amsterdam City Walking Tour

Try a typical Dutch window snack

You’ll be picked up from your Amsterdam hotel or Dam Square at your pre-determined time and taken to the tour starting point. Choose the half-day tour or enjoy a slower pace on the full-day tour, which includes two extra snacks and a beer or soft drink. This tour can be taken in English, French, German, Spanish or Portuguese; simply advise at the time of booking which language you prefer.

Start with a tram ride to the Jordaan district, a former working class area that’s now an upscale hub full of students, art galleries, specialty shops and markets, as well as some of the city’s main attractions, including the Anne Frank House and West Kirk (West Church).

You've probably seen the slew of houseboats lining Amsterdam's canals. In Jordaan, you'll get an in-depth look at the story behind the city's houseboat culture at the Houseboat Museum.

Next, head to the lively area of Leidseplein to try a typical Dutch 'window' snack — these 'windows' are unique vending machines that sell hot food like burgers and kroket (deep fried veal croquette). It may sound strange, but it's a must-try!

Continue to the Museum District, home to several world-famous museums including the Van Gogh Museum and Rjiksmuseum, as well as the Vondelpark.

Your last stop is a favorite of locals and tourist alike: Albert Cuyp, the largest street market in the Netherlands. Wandering the market's maze of aisles and vendors, you'll find everything from fresh produce to trendy clothing.

Excellent. Our guide tailored the tour to our interests. We feel we have a pretty good understanding of the Amsterdam architecture, history, and life style.

We were picked up at our hotel and walked through the all the well known parts of Amsterdam by our guide who was informative, gracious and patient with all our questions
Undoubtedly the best features of the tour were those off the beaten track of the normal tourist and focussing on what the locals saw, did, ate and drank.
We would recommend this approach over the traditional group approach

Thank you Everline. I am Choi from Korea. We met on June 22. We spent almost 5 hours meandering around the streets along the waterways. Your guide to Amsterdam's canals was the best way to discover the city and The Golden Age. Thank you again for your meticulously planned guide.

Massimo was fantastic! We walked for hours and he was able to tell us so much about the city. He enjoys speaking with people and giving the tour and you can tell. We had a wonderful time and learned so much. I would definitely recommend this tour and Massimo to anyone coming to Amsterdam.

We took the 4-hour walking tour with Steve Attersol the afternoon of our arrival. It was a great way to see Amsterdam. Steve was an excellent guide, and was very flexible and customized the site seeing based on your desires. He knew a ton about Amsterdam's history, as well as more current fascinating stories. I would highly recommend Steve as a tour guide and this tour as a great way to get a real feel for the city.
