    What to Expect
    Enjoy an atypical introduction to Amsterdam with the help of a savvy local on this private, 3-hour tour. After meeting up with your guide in Beursplein, set off on a leisurely stroll through the city’s most interesting quarters. Along the way, learn the history behind these iconic spots and hear tales of famous former residents and curiosities like the Red Light District.

    Visit a hidden chapel in medieval Begijnhof, admire the colorful stalls of the famous Flower Market, walk across the Waterlooplein and pop into one of the city’s oldest family restaurants for a taste of kroketje (croquettes) or bitterballen (meatballs). Hear some little-known artistic history that surrounds a statute near Rembrandt’s house, and learn about Amsterdam’s diverse cultural heritage on a walk through the old Jewish district.

    Feel free to ask all the questions you like on this private tour, and enjoy the personalized attention of your guide. Learn interesting trivia and quirky history that can't be found in any guidebook, and discover the places that locals like to eat, play and relax. The 3-hour tour concludes in one of the city’s hippest neighborhoods boasting boutique-lined streets — a great place to continue exploring on your own.
