Full description
Enjoy a 1.5 hour private or public walking tour of Amsterdam with a small (private) group of maximum four travelers and a guide. The small group size makes it easy to explore this gorgeous but busy city and enhances the feeling of escaping mass tourism. Learn about the city's interesting history and cultural life. You will certainly be impressed by the city's architectural beauty with static and imposing canal houses, its people and its relaxed, open-minded atmosphere. The easiest way and place to meet your guide is at the National Monument on Dam (Dam Square) since you truly cannot overlook the giant white pillar. Dam is the heart of the city and the place where the Amsterdammers built a dam over the river. Because this is where the city originated one could say that this is where all the magic happened. Nowadays the beautiful square is a symbolic location because it houses important national symbols such as the National Monument, the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), and the Royal Palace. Follow your guide who leads the way through quaint alleyways with cobble-stoned streets where no other tourists are to be found. In the Dutch 17th century Holland was incredibly wealthy and powerful. The architectural heritage from those colonial dark days is seen all over this compact city, just like its classical character with gorgeous canal houses and historical houseboats. Admire the Waag, a medieval, fairytale-like building that once served as the gate to Amsterdam and other important sights such as Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk (Wester Church). Make sure to have enough space on your phone to take hundreds of photos because no matter where you look there will be something picturesque to see. Wander a bit off to take that perfect shot, because with the headsets that are used during the tour you can hear your guide even from a distance. Be surprised about Dutch culture and enjoy the entertaining stories your spontaneous and enthusiastic guide shares with you and learn about the city’s vibrant history and the dynamic between history, tolerance, religion, and pragmatism. Curious? Book below and be sure to enjoy a high-quality, off-the-beaten-path walking tour full countless of marvelous views.
