Know More about this tour

You’ll be picked up from your Amsterdam hotel or Dam Square at your pre-determined time and taken to the tour starting point. This tour can be taken in English, French, German, Spanish or Portuguese; simply advise at the time of booking which language you prefer.
Start with a tram ride to the Jordaan district, a former working class area that’s now an upscale hub full of students, art galleries, specialty shops and markets, as well as some of the city’s main attractions, including the Anne Frank House and West Kirk (West Church).
You've probably seen the slew of houseboats lining Amsterdam's canals. In Jordaan, you'll get an in-depth look at the story behind the city's houseboat culture at the Houseboat Museum.
Next, head to the lively area of Leidseplein to try a typical Dutch 'window' snack — these 'windows' are unique vending machines that sell hot food like kroket (deep fried veal croquette). It may sound strange, but it's a must-try!
Continue to the Museum District, home to several world-famous museums including the Van Gogh Museum and Rjiksmuseum, as well as the Vondelpark.
Your last stop is a favorite of locals and tourist alike: Albert Cuyp, the largest street market in the Netherlands. Wandering the market's maze of aisles and vendors, you'll find everything from fresh produce to trendy clothing.

  • 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.

  • John our tour guide was excellent! His knowledge of the city's history and enthusiasm were outstanding. Our group of six arrived in Amsterdam two days ahead of our cruise and we had the opportunity to do a little sightseeing on our own. I would suggest that you book the guided walking tour for your first day in the city. If you then have free time before you sail, take advantage to see areas not covered on the tour. The city is very walk-able but watch out for cyclists apparently bicycles in Amsterdam do not have brakes. Nor do pedestrians have the right of way.

  • We were disappointed with our tour. It wound up just being our family of 4. Guide was nice, but we felt like we were on a tour with a family friend . We have been traveling all over the Baltics with multiple tours our guides were always prepared and enthusiastic. Guide dependent I guess

  • Rop hiked with us all over Amsterdam. He is very knowledgeable about history and architecture. He took us into buildings that we never would have known to explore on our own.

  • Amazing experience. Highly recommend.

  • OMG! I feel so blessed to have taken this tour. First, my guide Massimo was the best I could have hoped for. He and I hit it off right away, and the next 4 hours were amazing. His depth of knowledge of the history of Amsterdam and the Netherlands was the highlight of my first full day in Amsterdam. We walked everywhere. We talked, we laughed, and we shared a great experience. I would do this tour in a heartbeat again and again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, and ask for Massimo! :-

  • We all highly enjoyed this tour, even though we had just gotten off an over night flight with hardly any sleep. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to the highlights of the city but off the beaten path some, which we enjoyed seeing. We were treated to a Dutch snack and coffee, both were great! We learned so much about the city, I would have never known. You can tell he loves his city and loves to show it off. He also helped us with a couple of questions for other activites we had while in Amsterdam.

  • This is an excellent tour to acquaint you with Amsterdam. Robert, my guide, was knowledgable and ready and willing to take me where ever I wanted to go as well as show me some spots like hidden Catholic Churches that I knew nothing about. I was some what apprehensive at the beginning as I was taking this tour by myself. But all of that was for naught as Robert's friendly and easy demeanor made it seem as I was walking and talking with a friend. Excellent tour.

  • Danni was our tour guide and she was knowledgeable and friendly and we spent 4 hours with her as a group of 4. There is not the same historical features such as Rome or Istanbul but we wanted the history of the city and understanding of the reclamation of the land over the last centuries. Danni was able to provide us with much information and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

  • My tour guide was amazing, and gave me a great historical perspective of the city and some great sights! Would recommend this to anyone!
