Full description
While it’s easy to fall in love with the sights and sounds of a city, you don’t really get to know it until you taste it. On this 4-hour guided foodies tours take, you’ll delve into the lesser-known areas of Amsterdam in a small group, discovering unique food vendors hidden down various streets and alleyways.

As the sun begins to set, you’ll wander through the Oud West neighborhood, a district characterized by elegant architecture, peaceful canals, and offbeat bars and shops. The area is renowned for having the feel of a small village, even though it’s right in the heart of the city. Along the way you’re encouraged to be curious and ask as many questions as you like to your expert guide. The tour is all about experiencing the city with all of your senses and learning about the unique foods that Amsterdam locals love, sipping, nibbling, and savoring every flavor in great company.

Entertaining „food tour“ spiced up with some -but not too much- information on Amsterdam. Nice Guide and overall worth the money.
