Your 3-hour walking tour of Amsterdam begins in the morning in Dam Square, where your informative guide leads your small group around the historical center.

Admire perfectly preserved 17th-century gabled houses and peaceful tree-lined canals dotted with traditional Dutch houseboats. Walk by the Rembrandt House Museum, the Anne Frank House and Descartes' House.

Wander down the bustling shopping street of Kalverstraat, and in the Jordaan district, note the many upscale art galleries, specialty shops, and restaurants. Your guide also takes you into the alleys of the notorious Red Light District (de Wallen).

End your tour at Westerchurch, with plenty of time left in the day to continue exploring on your own.

Amsterdam Waling Tour with Ollie
, Sep 2019
My husband and I enjoyed our walking tour with Ollie. He was personable and informative. He did an excellent job of providing enough history so that we left with a good understanding of the city without overwhelming us with facts and dates, I would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host , Sep 2019
Yes another good word for Oliver. He is in his comfort zone with small groups so I am glad you had an opportunity to experience his wit and passion for history. Cheers
Great tour with Sebastian

A perfect way to start our Amsterdam trip. The walking tour was fantastic. As was our guide, Sebastian.
Response from Host , Sep 2019
Good to hear our guide was fantastic- I will let Bas know he hasn't lost his charm.
Good Dam Walk

Chloe was great. Good info and presentation. She provided an excellent perspective. Only thing to add would be some larger orientation for the city, different neighborhoods and area.
Response from Host , Aug 2019
Nice point. Now we average 3km and seems enough for the majority of our clients. The most we can add now would be the canal district. The only way to really see a good part of the city is to take a bike tour. Or a generic walking tour that points out only monuments as they walk by. Our aim is to show you the intimate side of the three main areas of the downtown. Ill let Chloe Know you enjoyed her tour. And consider asking guides if they are comfortable with new routes.

Sebastian was a fantastic tour guide. He really knew his stuff! This was our second time in Amsterdam and he gave us information about the city that we hadn't heard before. Definitely a "thumbs up!"

Great experience! We learned a lot and laughed even more! Thanks Chloe! It was my first time in Amsterdam and this tour was a wonderful mix of history, learning about the Dutch psyche, and finding good places we want to go back to. Got us off to a good start on our very short time in Amsterdam!
Response from Host , Aug 2019

Great small walking tour.

Very interesting tour that was personalized for the group. Chloe is extremely knowledgeable and fun. Many fun facts about Amsterdam as well as the US.
Response from Host , Aug 2019
MMM. sounds like you got a lot of topics in during your tour. Well we try and relate to our clients or meet some of their needs. I guess US was on the list of comparisons that day. Thanks for the review.

We only had 3 nights in Amsterdam so a walking tour with a local like Sean was the way to go. Sean gave us a very good historical background on Amsterdam which helped us appreciate the city's development and contribution to the world. His overall knowledge and anecdotes made this tour insightful and enjoyable!
Response from Host , Aug 2019
Thank you very much. It is nice to write a response on my own behalf. I will try and stick with good anecdotes if my local friend keep sharing them with me. Its the exchange for living in such a great place. Hope you come back for another visit. Three nights is not enough time.
