This is one of my favourite tours, because a walk is the best way to get to know Amsterdam.
In our small groups, we decide in which pace we want to explore the city and will discover it together.
After the tour, you will know why this little fishing village at the mouth of the river Amstel became the vibrant capital as we know it today.
We walk through the oldest part of the city, along old canals, houses and proud church towers. We also pass the Chinese Quarter and if you want to we will also see the Red Light District.
We will visit the famous flea market (closed on Sundays) and you will be surprised about the beautiful view at the river Amstel.
We will also see the famous Canal district which was built around the old town of Amsterdam. In 2013, the Canal district with its city palaces of the rich patrician families celebrated its 400th birthday.
I am sure that you will be thrilled by the beautiful flower market. After a short while we will be at the Dam Square, right in the centre of Amsterdam, where we will see the Royal Palace and the New Church where the inauguration festivities for King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima took place on the 30th of April 2013.
From there, it is only a short walk across the canals to the Wester Church.
At the end of the tour, you can visit the Anne Frank House or take a canal cruise.
This varied city tour gives you a good impression of our capital. After this tour, you can find your way in Amsterdam and know the backgrounds of this city.
I am looking forward to your visit!
I recommend comfortable walking shoes, appropriate weather gear and some cash for your personal expenses for this tour.
