What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Amsterdam City Walking Tour

Try a typical Dutch window snack

Depart from either your Amsterdam hotel or a central city location and travel to the departure point of the walking tour. After greeting your knowledgeable guide, board a tram destined for the Jordaan district, listening to interesting commentary regarding the district’s radical transformation as you travel. 

On arrival, stroll past West Kirk and Anne Frank’s house to hear of the building’s tragic history, and then gain fascinating insight into the city’s houseboat culture at the Houseboat Museum. 

Amble onwards to the lively Leidseplein area to pleasure your palate with traditional Dutch ‘window’ snacks; sample enticing bites like kroket (deep fried veal croquettes) and juicy burgers, and then continue to the Museum District to see the Van Gogh Museum. 

Capture photographs of the bright and beautiful Vondelpark before concluding your tour at Albert Cuyp, the largest street market in the Netherlands. Stroll amid the well-stocked stalls that sell everything from vintage clothing to locally sourced produce. 

After exploring for four hours, bid your guide a fond farewell at the Albert Cuyp market and continue discovering the Dutch capital at your own pace.

A very informative private guided walking tour of Amsterdam. Our guide Marja, was great fun, highly knowledgable and took us to places we would never have discovered. A fabulous introduction to the streets, history and architecture of Amsterdam.

Don't let the price for this one turn you away. If you are visiting the city for the first time, don't just sign up for this tour, make this your first experience if you can. Fresh off the plane, we joined Linda who walked us just my wife and I for four hours through our first glimpses into the city. For my wife, it gave us a grounding in getting a lay of the land for our next few days. For me, it founded every sight on the history and culture I was anxious to learn. Linda wasn't just a travel lecturer, she was a wonderfully friendly assistant who made sure we knew all the right travel tips and advice. Thank you Linda!

This private tour consisted of walking and traveling by tram to various old and new parts of Amsterdam. We met Daphne Duyne, who was our tour guide of the private Rembrandt walking tour, again. What another great time we spent with Daphne, it was so relax and informative. She explained how the city was developed and led us to many beautiful areas eg. the seven bridge canal, nine street area, Jordaan district, Red Light district, Chinatown, houseboats area in the modern part of Amsterdam. We also had a great privilege to visit a secret and beautiful private garden hidden away from old building facades. At the end of the tour, we all felt that we had been leading around by a friend rather than by a tour guide.

Our guide was very personable and did a great job explaining the history of Amsterdam. I booked the tour so my wife and I were the entire group and I really enjoyed the flexibility that provided us during an afternoon when we were recovering from a long flight. Working a couple of beer breaks into the afternoon and eliminating some of the sites we had limited interest in made for a great overall experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

We flew into town from Los Angeles in the morning and this afternoon walking tour was perfect to keep us moving and give us a great orientation to Amsterdam. Worth the money!

We are a group of 4 and we always change the itinerary to the frustration of the guides ... not this one! The ladies like to shop and the men like to drink. Ms. Dany was super and we enjoyed all of the information that she shared. Well spoken and knowledgeable on ALL topics. She even fill in information that we missed on the Red Light District tour the previous night that our other guide failed to tell us. Super, SUPER!!! Thanks!
