What makes this tour special

On your private half-day tour of Amsterdam, trace the city’s fascinating history, delving into backstreets and highlights of the city. On your private tour you will: 

From its humble beginnings as a fishing village by the Amstel river, Amsterdam has enjoyed a rich and storied history. By the 17th century, it had grown into a lively port town, attracting wealthy merchants and artisans from all over the globe to enjoy the high life in one of the world’s most prosperous cities. Today Amsterdam is characterised by centuries-old canals, painted houseboats, and streets filled with cyclists. World-class museums and galleries boast highly-prized art collections, while elegant spire-topped churches gaze down on an extraordinary number of stone bridges - more than 500 at last count.

On your tour, you will explore Dam Square, once the mouth of the Amstel River; marvel at the ornate grandeur of the cupola-topped Koninklijk Palace, one of a trio of Dutch royal residences. Admire the stunning facade of the 800-year-old Nieuwe Kerk, which is such a part of the Dutch identity and is considered “Amsterdam’s living room”. Stroll Torensluis Bridge and pass by the house of Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank before stopping to admire 17th century’s Westerkerk’s soaring tower. In atmospheric Nine Street, yield to the bustle of pavement cafes, florists and boutiques before marvelling at the rainbow of vivid fragrant blooms in Amsterdam’s famous flower market. See where booksellers and street artists vie for attention (on Fridays) close to the leafy courtyard of Begijnhof, a haven of quietude in the city’s buzz and bustle. Your tour finishes in the Joordan District – the foodie district of Amsterdam, where your guide will happily recommend various dining options to you.
