Hear tales of the city’s humble beginnings as a small settlement on the Amstel River, and learn how the Golden Age helped develop it into a unique, multifaceted metropolis. Get a comprehensive overview as you meander down side streets and explore major areas including the Jordaan district and the infamous Red Light District, showcasing Amsterdam’s provocative side. 

Midway through your tour, stop to sample typical Dutch specialties including herring, cheese, waffles, and jenever (Dutch gin).

Wander on foot by the old city gates, the Floating Flower Market (Bloemenmarkt) and Munt Tower (Munttoren) in Muntplein Square. Explore the busy pedestrian shopping street of Kalverstraat and the bicycle-clad street of Rokin. 

View, too, the exteriors of the Anne Frank House, Rembrandt House Museum and Amsterdam Museum. Consider returning to visit them (own expense) after your tour concludes back at the Damrak, with the option to add on a cruise along Amsterdam’s UNESCO World Heritage–listed network of canals.

Optional Canal Cruise: For a more in-depth Amsterdam sightseeing experience, opt to continue your tour with a canal cruise. Drift along picturesque tree-lined canals past classic houseboats and gabled merchant houses built in the 17th century. See charming stone bridges and pass through Amsterdam's old harbor before returning to the pier.

We did not get to do this, as our flight was cancelled, so we had to cancel our walking tour. We love these walking tours, so were very disappointed that we couldn't go.

Yvette took us for our afternoon walking tour of Amsterdam. We had a lovely day weather wise and she was a great tour guide to take us around Amsterdam. As expected she took us all around the centre of Amsterdam and then took us to some other places of interest ( Amsterdam museum / anne franc house ) both if you want to enter you would have to come back later and pay entrance fees ( but at least you now know where they are. We also had a little stop in Rokin and visited a cheese shop for tastings and a shot of Jenever. Thank you for a lovely tour

We were really looking forward to this...

We were really looking forward to this as it was our first time to Amsterdam. We had booked using Viator before in Paris and had a great experience. Not so much this time. For some reason, with a large group of people, the tour guide decided not to use the ear pieces and attempted to do the tour just talking. Now if this was a small group of 8-10 it might have worked. This was a group of over 20. We left halfway through... Couldn't hear a thing he was saying.

Local Food Tour

Local food tour was a great value. Our tour guide, Tyler, walked us though the small streets of Amsterdam in and around Spui Square with several stops for local food as well as excellent commentary on Dutch food, history and architecture. The tour included meats, croquettes, chocolates, desserts and drinks. Price of the food was included in the tour price.
