Full description
The first thing you will instantly notice when you take a deep breath in Amsterdam is that yes, it smells like burned cannabis! On this tour you will discover the fascinating culture of “getting high” in the Netherlands with a local. All you have to do is pick your favorite local guide, and you are all set to discover Amsterdam, one puff at a time.

You will find out why the Dutch are so chilled regarding cannabis, whilst being told local and personal stories about the subject such as what it’s like to grow plants in your mom’s garden and bake a cannabis cake with your dad. You'll even visit a real cannabis garden and see how plants are grown the local Amsterdam style.

To top it off, you'll see where the locals go to get their weed and have a sneak-peak of a couple of the local's favorite coffee shops. You'll also hear about the biggest and oldest coffee shops in town and learn how to get the best weed and smoke it in a responsible way.

Along the route, you will also have the chance to walk down the most famous part of old Amsterdam: The red light district. Here you will be able to walk through this famous neighborhood, discovering its hidden gems with your private guide. You can learn about its history, and why for others it's a taboo but for the locals is just part of their city and culture.
