Wander off the beaten path with this insider’s tour of Amsterdam’s vibrant modern culture. Meet your private, local guide at the Central Station at your chosen start time, and set off on a walking tour of the city's lesser-known gems that many tourists miss. Along the way, your guide will share local insight and can customize the itinerary to suit your interests.
See where local creative types are leading the contemporary arts scene at a design campus and the Mediamatic arts and technology center. Swing by a local library to check out a current exhibition, and stroll down Haarlemmerstraat, considered the hippest street in the city by those in the know. Stop in at a local cafe to rest your feet and refuel with a slice of delicious Dutch apple pie, and then continue on past some of the city's lesser-known canals often overlooked by tourists.
For a truly local excursion, ride the ferry across the river to the city’s revitalized Noord, or North district, which has drawn flocks of younger residents and families in recent years thanks to its lower prices and up-and-coming cultural vibe. People watch while sipping coffee at a trendy neighborhood bar before bidding farewell to your guide back at the Central Station.
