An informative stroll around a nice part of Amsterdam. Delicious food in significant quantities. Although I wouldn't bother with the place with the chicken and bacon roll (not up to the standard of the others) The guide was lovely

Go ahead and try the herring!

We loved our tour guide, Ruby, and thoroughly enjoyed all the foods that were offered to us on this tour! Go hungry and have an open mind. You will try the herring, offered with some onions and pickles & tulip vodka. Start off with an apple cake with whipped cream, then onto another cafe for cheese and sausage, stop at another place for some chicken satay; another place for herring and tulip vodka and then another place gin (Genever) and amsterdam pancakes and yet another place for a stroopwafel. Everything had it's own dutch name, but I really can't pronounce or spell any of them other than the stroopwafel! Also, learned some other history of the this tour as we strolled along the streets in the Jordaan district.
