AMSTERDAM WALKING TOUR
Enjoy a 1.5 hour private or public walking tour of Amsterdam with maximum three other travelers and a guide. The small group size makes it easy to explore this gorgeous but busy city and enhances the feeling of escaping mass tourism. Learn about the city's interesting history and cultural life. You will certainly be impressed by the city's architectural beauty with static and imposing canal houses, its people and its relaxed, open-minded atmosphere.
Meet your guide at Dam Square; the heart of the city and the place where the Amsterdammers built a dam over the river. Because this is where the city originated one could say that this is where all the magic happened. ✨ Nowadays the beautiful square is a symbolic location because it houses important national symbols such as the National Monument, the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) and the Royal Palace.
Follow your guide who leads the way through quaint alleyways with cobble-stoned streets where no other tourists are to be found. Be amazed by the city's classical but open character with historical canal houses and house boats. Admire the Waag, a medieval, fairytale-like building that once served as the gate to Amsterdam and other sights such as Begijnhof and Westerkerk. Discover Oudehuismanspoort, a passage that dates back to about 1601 and serves as a book market since 1879.
Be surprised about Dutch culture and enjoy the entertaining stories your enthusiastic guide shares with you. Learn more about the city’s vibrant history and the dynamic between history, tolerance, religion and pragmatism.
Make sure to have enough space on your phone to take plenty of photos because no matter where you look there's something great to see. Wander a bit off to take that perfect shot, because with the headsets that are used during the tour you can hear your guide clearly even from a distance.
