Full description
Discover the origins of Amsterdam on a 2-hour walking tour with a private guide. Learn where the name Amsterdam came from, why the Dutch are so good at managing water, and more.

Old markets, wooden houses, funny corners, curious stories, old streets, windows with red lights, strange smells, crowded squares, monumental buildings, an oasis in the middle of the city, bourgeois orphans, money makers, and more are all on the itinerary.

You will learn the relation between the church and the Red Light District, and how and why the typical narrow Dutch houses came about. You could just read a history book on the subject, but on this immersive walking tour of Amsterdam, you won’t just learn the history of the city; you’ll experience it!
