Highlight of our Amsterdam trip

The six of us booked a private food tour. Our guide Andrea welcomed us warmly. She knows the city very well and has an answer to every question. We really liked the mixture of cuisine, culture and city tour. Without wanting to reveal too much: The selected locations for snacks, tastings, sweets and savory were great and we went home happy and full. Many thanks to dear Andrea, we would recommend the tour to everyone immediately!
