Explore Amsterdam like a local on a private walking tour, and discover hidden gems among the historic highlights. See buildings that tell the story of Amsterdam, from the “Golden Age” and other eras. Hear stories about "killer" bikes, and more.
What to Expect
Learn the history and culture of Amsterdam on a private walking tour with a fun and knowledgeable guide, and skip the dry facts and dates found on so many group tours. By the end, you will feel as if a Dutch friend has shown you around, instead of a lecturer or history teacher.
Besides explaining why the houses in Amsterdam look like they do, and how the Netherlands became the first republic in the world, your guide will point out things to do and places to visit in your own time. Ladies - and gents - can take a detour to the best shopping areas, although this is entirely optional!
Feel free to provide the guide with any special interests you may have so that he can tailor the tour to suit. End with a walk through the Old Town to see architecture from Amsterdam’s “Golden Age” when it was one of the most influential cities in the world.
What's Not Included
- Entrance fees (if you want to enter sites, such as the Old Church)
