What You'll Experience:
Culinary Gems and Highlights on Our Best Food Tour in Amsterdam

Our culinary tour features numerous stops, ranging from fast food to traditional "brown" bars, making it a standout among other food tours in Amsterdam.

Wandering through the old town, we will pay close attention to the hallmarks of Dutch cuisine: cheese, herring, kibbeling (fried fish), and smoked eel. We'll learn how to properly enjoy cheese the Dutch way and how local herring became a globally recognized brand. We'll discover the exotic dishes that arrived in Amsterdam during the colonial era, what dinner looks like on a farm, and what's trendy among young Amsterdammers.

We'll definitely sample some local sweets: the famous Dutch waffles, traditional spiced apple pie, or doughnuts. We won't overlook the luxurious chocolate cookies locals line up for in huge queues. Don't worry, we'll make sure you won't have to wait in line :). Get ready for an unforgettable chocolate tasting in Amsterdam where we'll dive into the rich world of Dutch cocoa and chocolates.

Our tour concludes with a glass of local beer, liqueur, or a very authentic Dutch spirit, jenever, in one of the old "brown" bars, accompanied by traditional Dutch snacks. Some may seem unusual to you. But trust us, they're delicious!

The tour offers 10 tastings, including one drink per person. Depending on the day of the week, the starting time, and your taste preferences, the list of tastings may vary.

We recommend this tour to people without gastronomic dislikes or restrictions. If you have any, please let us know in advance. We'll certainly find a way to offer you something equally tasty and exciting.

What You'll See: Iconic Sights and Hidden Gems Flavors on Our Amsterdam Food Tour

We've crafted our food tours in Amsterdam with great love, featuring not the tourist spots but local favorites cherished by Amsterdammers, the real "insider" places.

Our route will take us through picturesque, yet not common locations. Together, we'll explore the canal ring, the ancient Begijnhof, a "hidden" Catholic church where a renowned Dutch electronic music artist performs on the organ, a district filled with designer shops, and much more. We'll discover where the city's soul resides and the coffeeshop featured in 'Ocean's Twelve.' And, of course, we'll have an abundance of charmingly tilted houses with tiled roofs and humpbacked bridges where you can capture splendid photographs.

What You'll Learn: Culture, History, Traditions, and Modernity

We'll sample a variety of Dutch dishes on our Amsterdam food tours, each with its own fascinating story to tell. Between sips of beer or bites of apple pie, we'll gradually figure out what kind of people the Dutch really are—how they live, what they love and value, and what they don't. We'll explore how "beer on Fridays" became a "national idea" and learn how many minutes a day the locals spend cooking. Along the way, we'll dispel many stereotypes and share plenty about the city. After all, we've chosen to stroll through its most picturesque neighborhoods.

This is a private tour. That means we'll talk about what interests you the most, whether it's history, lifestyle, urban legends, cutting-edge innovations, or art.

* After this tour, we highly recommend taking a tour of North Amsterdam, "Your Own Amsterdam Noord: A City You Did Not Know About," to get acquainted with the modern city and see it from a completely different perspective. And of course, don't forget to explore the city or its surroundings by bike, take a boat ride, and visit the islands of the North Sea.

Perhaps, you still have some questions. This is what we get asked about most of the time.
