ABOUT Amsterdam

Discover the many faces of Amsterdam with a passionate local guide

The Dutch capital has long been a favorite with visitors to Europe. With the canals and bike paths giving way to a fascinating mix of history and culture, and a reputation as one of the most liberal cities on the planet, it’s not hard to see why! Let us show you this incredible city through the eyes of Amsterdam’s best local tour guides.

The original Free Tour of Amsterdam covers many of the city’s top attractions, including Dam Square, the Red Light District, Anne Frank House and more. After you’ve got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us!

Cruise down Amsterdam’s famous canals on our Boat Tour & take in the best views of the city.

On the WWII & Jewish Quarter Tour you’ll learn about life under Nazi occupation during World War II and you’ll visit some of the most powerful memorials for the victims.

The Alternative Tour of Amsterdam will show you street art and you’ll hear about gentrification, drug laws and legal prostitution. After that, the Red Light District walking tour takes place every evening, giving you a guide to one of the most fascinating prostitution areas in Europe.

For those wanting to visit Amsterdam on a bike, the Amsterdam Countryside Bike Tour will take you outside the city for windmills and more!
