What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Amsterdam City Walking Tour

Try a typical Dutch window snack

Depart from either your Amsterdam hotel or a central city location and travel to the departure point of the walking tour. After greeting your knowledgeable guide, board a tram destined for the Jordaan district, listening to interesting commentary regarding the district’s radical transformation as you travel. 

On arrival, stroll past West Kirk and Anne Frank’s house to hear of the building’s tragic history, and then gain fascinating insight into the city’s houseboat culture at the Houseboat Museum. 

Amble onwards to the lively Leidseplein area to pleasure your palate with traditional Dutch ‘window’ snacks; sample enticing bites like kroket (deep fried veal croquettes) and juicy burgers, and then continue to the Museum District to enrich your knowledge of iconic painter, Van Gogh, at his eponymous museum. 

Capture photographs of the bright and beautiful Vondelpark before concluding your tour at Albert Cuyp, the largest street market in the Netherlands. Stroll amid the well-stocked stalls that sell everything from vintage clothing to locally sourced produce. 

After exploring for four hours, bid your guide a fond farewell at the Albert Cuyp market and continue discovering the Dutch capital at your own pace.

Our guide Corrine was excellent. A great way to visit the city and find out about it's history and life from a local viewpoint. It is a four hour walking tour, so be prepared - although our guide did say they do adapt to take account of those who might not wish to walk so far. Highly recommended.

Best way to get real feel for Amsterdam. We had already seen some sights so Wilhelm our guide arranged tour round the centre areas and he was the perfect guide-full of witty anecdotes and information. We chose where to end tour to go on somewhere else. Highly recommended!

Very informative tour. Hits all the high points and gets you oriented to the city in 4 hours. Lots of walking so be prepared. This does get you close to the residents as opposed to taking a bus tour. Ed did a fine job of walking at our pace and making sure we were enjoying ourselves.

Harry was FANTASTIC.
It was wonderful to walk the city streets and backstreets to get a feel for the lifestyle of Amsterdam.
Harry answered all our questions and had many himself about our life style in Australia.
We really appreciated his knowledge and the humour he added along the way.
I would highly recommend a personal tour - worth every cent and more!

Maria, our tour guide, was terrific. She met us at our hotel and we embarked on a four hour walking tour of Amsterdam. We got to see so much and Maria provided us with so much information, not only about the sights we were seeing but also some insight into what life is like in Amsterdam. She also provided us with a great deal of history. What a great experience!
