Full description
Discover the Old City of Amsterdam on a private 3-hour walking tour and explore sights such as the world-famous Red Light District, charming Jordaan, and hidden Begijnhof. Your friendly guide will describe more than 800 years of Amsterdam’s history and culture, from its humble beginnings on the river Amstel to the glorious Golden Age.

Stroll around the world famous 17th-century Canal Belt, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010, and formed by draining swampland to create a canal network of concentric arcs. Pass Dam Square, home to the Royal Palace and 15th-century Nieuwe Kerk where many Dutch naval heroes are buried.

Discover one of the oldest inner courtyards in the city of Amsterdam at the Begijnhof, where the historic buildings are home to the English Reformed Church and much sought after private dwellings.

Walk through the infamous Red Light District, and down some of the oldest streets near the harbor. Your guide will tell fascinating stories of the sites that you pass, including the Western Church, Anne Frank House, Dutch East Indies HQ, and Nieuwmarkt (New Market), dominated by the Waag, an original city gate from the Middle Ages.

It was a great thing.

Our companion Mr. Kess or Käs wrote was really great. He was super nice and explained everything in a very exciting and interesting way. He quickly adjusted to our group with children. Even the kids loved it and loved it. We were able to get a very good overview. At the end he gave us a lot of tips. Thank you very much everyone liked it very much.
