Full description
Explore Amsterdam with a private guide for a more personalized impression of the city of canals. Starting from Dam Square, birthplace of the 700-year-old city, the walking or bike tours can be as short as two hours, or as long as a full-day, depending on your schedule.

Your local guide will explain the history of the most famous city of the Netherlands, including how 17th-century Amsterdam became the wealthiest city in the world, with Dutch merchants scattered across the globe.

Cycle around the famous Red Light District and experience Amsterdam’s laid-back ways. Stop at the Sky Lounge to enjoy the best views in town and pause at local cafés and bars for a cool beer or hot chocolate, depending on the weather.

You will end your tour in the direction of Begijnhof, where you will catch the fragrance of the Flower Market, before arriving at nearby Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square), home to the former butter market and close to some of the city’s most popular bars.
