Get a total overview of our city’s history on this 2-hour tour, with the inside story from our knowledgeable local guides. After leaving the meeting point on Dam square, we will tick some of the city highlights; like the UNESCO Canal Belt, the history of the Jewish Quarter, and the majestic Royal Palace. Explore the open-air museum of Amsterdam on foot, accessing places that tour boats and buses can’t reach.
Learn about the birth of the capital of the Netherlands, when a small anchorage in Northern Holland in the 17th century turned from an unassuming fishing village into a thriving transportation hub. Our story starts at the very birthplace of our city’s name, so put on your best shoes and humor and let’s start walking.
As a trader’s city, Amsterdam played an influential role in the colonial era of Europe. Sail along with the explorers of the VOC (Dutch East India Company), bringing the rest of the world to Europe’s gateway and discover how WWII left its mark on the city.
