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.

Half-day Tour (4 hours)
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.

Full-day Tour (8 hours)
The full-day tour follows the same itinerary but gives you more time at each stop to look around, take photos, and shop for souvenirs. Satisfy your sweet and salty cravings with ice cream and raw herring — a typical Dutch snack — at the Albert Cuyp market, and then continue to Rembrandtplein, a popular square with bars and restaurants where you'll stop to chat with your group and guide over a refreshing beer or soft drink.
