What makes this tour special

Enjoy a walking tour of the best of Amsterdam’s highlights with a private guide. On your private tour, you will: 


On your tour, you will explore several of the highlights of Amsterdam, beginning in Jordaan. The beautiful Jordaan District, traditionally a rather poor neighbourhood, attracted amazing artists and poets, including Rembrandt and the famous 17th-century Dutch writer Joost van den Vondel. Now, it is a bustling centre of creativity, full of young artists, entrepreneurs and trendy students taking their coffee in the myriad trendy cafes and restaurants. 

You will also see Westerkerk, which at its completion in 1631, was one of the earliest purpose-built Protestant churches. Amsterdam’s Oude Kerk and Nieuwe Kerk were originally built for Roman Catholic worship before the ‘Alteration,’ the bloodless Calvinist coup of 1578, saw them converted. Please note: the church is not open to guests occasionally. 

From there, your guide will take you to Dam Square, which got its name the same way Amsterdam did: it began life as a dam of the Amstel river nearly 750 years ago. As the city grew so did the dam, until it became large enough for a town square, and it has been at Amsterdam’s heart ever since. 

Paved with the Dutch capital’s distinctive cobblestones, the square today is a great place to breathe among some of the city’s most notable attractions: Madame Tussaud’s, the 15th century Gothic Nieuwe Kerk, the Royal Palace and the swish department store De Bijenkorf are all here.

You’ll also have the chance to see the Bloemenmarkt, which has floated on Amsterdam’s innermost canal since 1862. Historically, barges used to sail here up the Amstel from their smallholdings; today daily fresh flowers arrive by van, and fifteen florists and garden shops display their colourful wares in an array of covered stalls that are perched on piles.

Your tour will finish with tickets to board a canal cruise, so you can do one of the most iconic things in Amsterdam: see the city by water.
