We believe one of the best ways to experience a new city is to walk around with a local guide and taste the local foods. It was just the two of us on this tour. We stopped at a street kiosk and tried the famous herring with chopped onions. They were so delicious we even had seconds. We visited several markets and a cheese store where we samples some of their hand turned cheeses. A real treat was sampling local Belgium French Fries that were very crispy on the outside and creamy inside. They are served with your choice of about 10 different toppings
Great food tastings with detailed background along with city tour between locations
Great way to see the city and taste the flavors of Amsterdam. Our tour guide, Donovan was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience great fun. We would walk the different streets and he would tell us stories and then we would stop at a neighborhood shop or store and try their specialty. Ended the tour at a small neighborhood pub where we created our own drink and sat around a small table and shared. Would love to do it again.
Absolutely outstanding! Our guide, Sean, was great -- knowledgable, friendly, and funny. We sampled more than enough food, beginning with the best Belgian fries we've ever had, continuing with stoopwaffell probably spelled wrong, sausage, a local variation of pancakes, and ending with a visit to a local, very old distillery to sample a type of gin. All in all, a tour not to be missed!
It ended up being just the tour guide and I on the food tour. He still took me out and about and It was nice because we were able to get through it a little quicker and pop in some of the smaller shops to have a little more in-depth look at the local cuisine. Loved the food! A lot of variety and planned out well. The guide was awesome and focused on supporting the small businesses in Amsterdam. I would definitely reccommend
A fun way to start our trip to Amsterdam was a walking food tour with Sean of Urban Adventures. It was a great way to begin to become acquainted with the city and try some new things. We learned so much about the city! Very enjoyable and totally worth it for an afternoon of treats and conversation.
First class your, very well led by the tour guide, very witty and informative
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Sean, the owner of Urban Adventures, is GREAT. We had a great time trying different foods and would recommend this tour to others. Check out UA's website for more tours. We also did the Bike Tour with Sean and that was awesome.
Sean was an excellent tour guide. We felt like we spent an afternoon with a friend who shared lots of information about eating in Amsterdam as well as more general information. Great tips on where to eat and shared nice food ending in a drink at a distillery. Good value too

We loved this food tour. Although quite a bit of the foods we tried were free samples anyway, the tour guide was super knowledgeable. We went on our first full day of Amsterdam and learned a lot about the history, the areas we walked through, and of course the different foods!
Sean from Wisconsin was a WONDERFUL Foodie Tour Guide. The conversation and the walk through Amsterdam was informative and enjoyable. The cheese is wonderful, the fries were wonderful the, smoked eel my husband loved, I loved the waffles, alcohol, and sausage. Sean even recommended places to eat out for dinner while in Amsterdam. We went to the Rosenboom in a cute little alley way. Hands down a great meal for a great price.
Very well done! A must do if you want to experience the culture in Amsterdam in a more intimate and memorable way!
Our guide was terrific. He showed us some great little food places and even walked us through the grocery store which was very interesting.
Excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Were a small group so we had hid undivided attention and ended up getting a lot more from the experience than if in a larger group. He really went the extra mile for us. Thought I would not like the eel, but it was a great new taste.
I wish we had booked this tour earlier in our Amsterdam itinerary. Sean did a great job not just introducing us to local delicacies but also pointing out other attractions in the city. It was a fun couple of hours trying french fries, sausage, brined herring/eel which is actually quite good, and then rewarding ourselves with a stropwafel and ice cream and a drink at a local bar. It was fun, fast moving and very informative.
Easy to find starting location. Our guide was great and full of energy and lots of descriptions of the areas we were walking through as well as the background and history of the cultural reasons for the foods we were eating. We sampled foods from french fried potatoes, schnapps, cheese, herring, to hot dogs. No better way to learn the culture of a people than through their eating habits.
Just right, great walking tour. The guide provided even more than I expected. Not only good local food but conversation about houseboats, neighborhoods, and more.
The foods were just right, too. Holland had it's share of gourmet restaurants, but I was very interested in local, traditional foods.
Sean was friendly and very knowledgeable about Amsterdam, it's history, culture, and food. We didn't expect to eat as much as we did tip: don't eat beforehand. We tried all the local delicacies and discovered where the locals eat! There were only 4 of us and we had a ball.
Sean was just great and even sent us some photographs after the tour. This was a really enjoyable way to learn a bit about the Dutch and how their eating culture has been influenced over the years. Quite different and great fun. Sean is a font of knowledge and fun. Really enjoyed trying all the different foods, from smoked eels and herrings to pancakes and cheese. All ending up with delicious Bols in a really old drinking house. Thanks very much Sean and we seriously recommend this tour, especially if you have never been to Amsterdam before.
This food tour was amazing. Shawn was extremely knowledgeable about local history and took us to some fun little local places. This is a must-do walking tour.
