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.

  • The tour guide met us at our hotel promptly at 9:30 am. We had an amazing day with this guide. She was knowledgeable and courteous. Walked just over 18.5 km in 4 hours. Would recommend highly.

  • A must tour when one in Amsterdam.Knowledgeable tour guide.Thumbs up for her.

  • 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.

  • Lia exceeded our expectations in every respect. She is quite personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. As a result, we had a wonderful tour both in the sites that we experienced and in the knowledge that she imparted.

  • 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! :-
