What makes this tour special

Learn about the prosperous Dutch Golden Age, the fall of the Dutch East India Company, and its relevance in today's world. This tour is for all culture vultures and history buffs out there!

History of the Dutch East India Company

Founded in 1602, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) flourished for two centuries, navigating European trade networks with Asia. VOC's primary purpose was trade, exploration, and colonisation, particularly the  monopolisation of the intercontinental spice trade. On this tour, you will view architectural landmarks from the Dutch golden age such as its headquarters and the shipping house. Hear stories of the merchantry networks that allowed Amsterdam to flourish for two centuries. Gain an understanding of how the repercussions of these trading networks remain relevant in the modern-day. 

 We built this tour because traces of the Dutch East India Company  can be seen  throughout Amsterdam, but a guide is necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Dutch golden age.
