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 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.

Outstanding tour. It was so nice to have our guide meet us at our hotel. That made it very easy to start the tour. We like to take a tour when we arrive to get an idea of the city layout and get ideas of things we really want to do when we travel. This tour did a great job of helping us understand Amsterdam and identify fun things to do during the remainder of our trip. We were the one 2 persons on this tour, so it our guide was able to adjust the tour to our interests. He did a great job providing us the most customized and fun for us 4 hour tour possible. I feel we were able to see a quick overview of much of Amsterdam during this tour and learned a lot about the culture of Amsterdam. Bring your questions about Amsterdam and be ready to tell the guide what you like to do/see/eat when you travel. That will help him/her customize the tour to you, providing you with the most value for your investment. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that likes to walk, conversate , learn and travel.

A walking tour of Amsterdam with a knowledgeable, friendly, and astute guide with a deep experience of the city. I would not have minded a small-group walking tour, but did not see one available. However because it was just me, my fantastic guide Robert was able to tailor the walk a bit to my tastes. I saw much more than I would have by simply wandering around, which is what I typically do when traveling alone, and I learned a lot about a variety of subjects unique to Amsterdam. So I have a lot to go on now and much more to explore and research. The walk was about 4 hours, so we covered quite a lot of the city. Luckily I love to walk. We did take a couple of breaks for coffee and a nosh, also interesting experiences. Highly recommended!

This was one of the best decisions we have made. Our tour guide was wonderful, very easy to bond with, and related to us very well. We saw so much more with him than we possible could have on our own or with a group. And the wealth of information he shared with use was extraordinary.
