Full description
Hippie, stoner, and pothead are all negative stereotypes of ganja smokers that aren’t part of the marijuana culture in Amsterdam. Get an insight into the coffee shop culture and ganja scene in Amsterdam on a 2 or 2.5-hour guided walking tour. The group tour begins outside the legendary Dam Palace, as you start your exciting introduction to the local world of cannabis at one of the oldest coffee shops in Amsterdam. Your guide will take you on a walk through the streets of the city, walking to famous coffee shops, pubs, and secret medieval sites on the way that have passed the tour operator's quality check. Visit 1 or 2 coffee shops during the 2-hour tour and a third coffee shop on the 2.5-hour tour. Then, discover a great Irish pub (O'Reilly's), walk down the legendary gay street Reguliersdwarsstraat, learn about history and drug policies, and explore the menus and samples from a few of the shops.

We walked and learned with Eric! He was awesome….so knowledgeable…But with such a great touch of humor! He taught us so much about the local culture and how their system works..But also very much about the history. We would highly recommend this tour! Just know what a “coffee shop” truly is!

Definitelly recommended. Our tour guide for the Ganja Tour was Erik and he is exceptional, kind, friendly, informative, open minded. The tour is for anyone who wants to know more info about Amsterdam and its history and also for those who want to try some of the forbidden fruit. Also we were on a tour of Red light district with Manuel, which was very good because he showed us interesting things we would not try alone.

This tour was super fun. Erik did a really great job in guiding all of us throughout the city ans telling us rare details i wouldnt have found out otherwise. Don't int be confused about the innuendo of 'COFFEESHOP' as a poor lady was, but even she had a great time to be honest!
