Full description

From the meeting point at Beursplein square, start the walking tour of the main central attractions with your expert guide. Hear stories you’d never hear otherwise and experience the history of this city. From its start as a muddy village on the River Amstel, to the wild history of prostitution and drug decriminalization, to the tragedy of Anne Frank and Nazi occupation, the aim is to give you a perfect introduction to Amsterdam.

At the end of the walking tour, your guide will let you know where to take the selected cruise boat to continue touring the city’s iconic canal routes. On board, relax and take in the memorable sights that surround you. You can’t truly experience the city without getting to know its waterways, and on this cruise you will see the main canals, the Amstel River, and the famous seven bridges.

Whether you visit one of Amsterdam's famous museums or check out the cafés and bars of the Jordaan District, this tour will help you get your bearings in this often confusing city and allow you to make the most out of your stay here.

Kosta, our guide, was so knowledgeable and informative, he had a very pleasant and relaxed manner and answered all of our questions. So many interesting facts about the Dam, we learnt so much about the city and it’s fascinating long history, he was very well informed. He really made the tour. Enjoyed the canal boat as it was lovely to rest our weary legs, weather was good, and again lots of interesting facts with a different view of the Dam from the all important canals. Thank you.
