What to Expect
Enjoy a fun tour of some of Amsterdam’s most historic districts on a private walking tour of the city center’s canals and squares.
Departing from Spuistraat in the Canal Belt, your private guide will give you an in-depth and personalised tour, telling you stories known only to locals. Head to Dam Square to see the National Monument, Queens Palace, and Gothic 15th-century Nieuwe Kerk.
Stroll along some of the oldest streets, such as the Damrak and Rokin, which formed the end of the Amstel River in the Middle Ages. Nearby is the Red Light District of the Oudezijds Burgwal, which you will explore, along with the Old Jewish Quarter.
Go to the lively Nieuwmarkt and learn about Amsterdam’s Golden Age of trade. Pass the Rembrandt House Museum, located in the building where the artist lived and worked, and now reconstructed to provide an insight into what Amsterdam’s houses would have looked like when he was alive.
