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.

Eveline was a wonderful tour guide. She was on time picking us up from our hotel, and then proceeded to show us around the beautiful city of Amsterdam. She had enough in her budget to shout us a cup of coffee, which was very welcome on the cold day. We want to thank Eveline for the tour, the highlight for us was the flower market. We recommend highly Eveline for a walking tour.

Our first day and our guide gave us a great 4hr walking tour of Amsterdam. She first asked if there was anything in particular we wanted to see, got to know us a bit and then personalised the tour. We learned so much about the citys history, culture and the mentality. We got lucky and the weather held out and it didnt rain as predicted. Im reviewing this after having been on 2 Viator tours on this trip and I would definitely book with them again they clearly choose guides who are very good at what they do.

Robert showed up right on time and gave us a very informative and enjoyable tour of the city. We had gotten into town a few hours earlier and this was an excellent orientation to the city and the history of the area.

Charlotte was our tour guide and was fantastic. Her pace matched was comfortable for us and told stories about the sites that we were seeing. She built a relationship through finding common ground with us. She recommended places to see and places to eat that were close by at the end of the tour. Her English was good. I would ask for her on any subsequent visit.
