I live in De Pijp and Amsterdam beach is my hometown
I love organizing private dinners at home! One of the Dutch comfort foods I prepare is boerenkool stamppot.
Discover the Houseboat Museum with its vintage charm, and explore the Kattenkabinet, a canal house filled with captivating cat-themed art. A must visit for cat enthusiasts!

I'm from Leiden, I lived in the Jordaan for five years and now live in the beautiful Zaan region.
My favourite spot for Dutch pancakes is restaurant Upstairs on the Grimburgwal. Cheese, bacon and syrup are the holy trinity!
Exploring the historical Jewish quarter to the east of the city center, with the old Portuguese synagogue, Rembrandt's house and the Resistance Museum is a great way to learn about a lesser-known side of Amsterdam's history and culture.

This was a great and informative food tour. Aileen was an awesome tour guide. The food was great and we tried things I never would have ordered (and I liked them). I gained an understanding of the history of the neighborhood we were in, and enjoyed the rest of the people that were on the tour. I go on food tours in almost every city I visit and this one was worth it. I highly recommend this tour.

Jacopo was one of the best tour guides I have heard and seen - and I have experienced food tours throughout the U.S and Europe. He was kind, considerate, and obviously has a passion for history and what he does. The tour of Amsterdam was paced (timing and distance wise) very well and the food places chosen were an interesting and also delicious representation of the city. Excellent!

This was our favorite tour in Amsterdam. Our four kids loved all the food and even loved the herring which they have never tried before! We were so surprised. was so nice to hear some interesting and historical facts too. Gerard our guide was so wonderful and thoughtful. We would absolutely recommend this tour! Received great recommendations on restaurants too! Great food and drinks (coffee drinks, beer and even a surprise local liquor with some history) we loved it!

This tour came highly recommended by our friends. And luckily, we ended up having the same tour guide as they did; Mr. Gerard and he also remembered our friends!
He’s a retired English Teacher and a true Amsterdammer.
Ask him, how Amsterdammers feel about people from Rotterdam :-)
He was great! Had good material and personal anecdotes to fill in the time, while we were awaiting our food for tasting at the different locations.
Additionally, towards the end of the tour, Gerard took the time to hand write recommendations for each of us, according to our interest (what a great personal touch!)
We had a great time!!

We had the best time! Traveling with friends who also love food experiences, we were so excited for this tour in the Jordaan neighborhood. Jacopo did not disappoint. We learned Amsterdam history while enjoying the local food and drink. Our small group of foodies (12 in all) from Canada and all over the US quickly bonded over the dishes and libations. It was an exceptional experience that we highly recommend. Don’t miss this one.

We had a lovely time on the Food and Canals tour with Gerard in Amsterdam! The food was all delicious, the historical spots & information was fascinating & very well detailed by Gerard, & it was an excellent way to spend half a day in Amsterdam.

This food tour was fantastic. Helen was a wonderful guide with so much knowledge about Dutch food and the history of Amsterdam. She was also very patient when we wanted to purchase some of the delicious cheese we had tasted from a cheese shop. I fully recommend this tour.

Our guide Danielle, the guide of our Jordaan Food Tour in Amsterdam, was absolutely fantastic! She gave us a lot of local and personal insight into the history, culture and of course the food of the Jordaan district. We could not have asked for a better tour, food or guide! We highly recommend this tour!

Our group of 6 all agreed that Gerard was a fantastic tour guide who brought us on a wonderful food tour mixed with the right amount of history, laughs and truly great food. He wanted to be sure we all had a great experience and spent time with each family at the end of the tour to give us all great restaurant recommendations. We have gone on nearly fifty food tours all over the world and can say that this one was one of the best and I'm sure you'll love it like we all did!

If you go to Amsterdam, this is the tour to do. This was my second Eating Europe food tour and it was amazing. It was really a pinch me moment when we were floating along the canals eating cheese and drinking wine. Jelte was an amazing guide. He gave us a great amount of info on architecture and other interesting things about Amsterdam. My friends have always refused to do guided tours. I convinced them to do this one and they loved it. We booked the Paris food tour with Eating Europe after going on this tour. Seriously this will be a highlight of your vacation. I will do the tour again when I return to Amsterdam.

Best day of the trip! The tour covered everything I was wanting. Local food? Check! Walking tour with fun tidbits of history and culture? Check! Canal tour? Check! Bernardo was amazing - informative, fun and witty, and he even took us to some unplanned stops to see some secret gardens - of course with the history and story behind them.

Tolga was a wonderful guide as he introduced us to a variety of local foods and restaurants, while giving us the history of the neighborhood and area. Each tasting was unique and excellent. Everyone seemed to agree it was a great way to explore the area and cuisine. We will be recommending this tour to others.

Joining an Amsterdam food tour gives you a chance to explore the city through its culinary culture with the help of our local food tour guides. Taste the local specialties, including Bitterballen (paired with a local beer, of course) and the herring that the Dutch are famous for!
