Amsterdam: Private Walking Tour of Jordaan & De 9 Straatjes

1. Amsterdam: Private Walking Tour of Jordaan & De 9 Straatjes

Join an enthusiastic local guide on a private walking tour to get a unique glimpse of the ultra-trendy Jordaan district and De 9 Straatjes, its adjacent micro-neighborhood lined with vintage boutiques and niche outlets. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Meet your guide and start at the National Monument across from Dam Square, before heading to the quaint and quirky De 9 Straatjes to explore original stores selling clothing, books, art, and food.  Walk down the picturesque paths to Bij Ons Vintage, one of the city’s most famous vintage stores, and sift through stylish clothes from decades ago. Cross a couple of the area’s iconic canals on your way to browse through Galerie Geluk’s gorgeous Asian antiques, jade carvings, and intricate jewelry. Once you’ve done some more window-shopping – or regular shopping – squeeze in some sightseeing at the 400-year-old Westerkerk, an iconic monument at the edge of the Jordaan.  Pass a street musician or two as you explore the independent art galleries, fantastic restaurants, and fresh markets that make this neighborhood famous across the Netherlands.  Visit fashion-forward attractions like the chic Hutspot concept store and LENA The Fashion Library, and wind down with your local guide over a coffee at a cobbled café.
