Embark on the Amsterdam De Pijp Food Tour, a delicious journey through the city’s Latin Quarter.

This tour offers an intimate glimpse into the vibrant tapestry of cultures in one of Amsterdam’s most historic neighborhoods, blending culinary exploration with cultural immersion.

Note: itinerary & tastings subject to change due to seasonal availability, individual closings or local holidays.

Kick things off with a sweet and cinnamon-spiced breakfast adored by locals and visitors alike.

Taste history in the form of… fresh herring and kibbeling (don’t knockit ’till you try it!) 🐟

See the Netherlands’ most famous daily market, where stalls are so coveted by vendors that permanent places have a 20-year-long wait list!

Say it with me: Saucijzenbroodjes. Sample the Dutch meat pastry from a bakery that provides work and learning opportunities to underrepresented youth.

You can’t leave Amsterdam without savoring Suriname cuisine. The former Dutch colony is responsible for some of the country’s most vibrant flavors, and you’ll experience the best of them in the form of a renowned roti roll 🇸🇷

Gouda thing we didn’t forget the cheese. Taste some of the best of the rich, caramel-like, nutty Dutch national treasure.

Cap off the tour with a local brew and bitterballen in a cafe and liquor store in a building that’s been standing since 1735! 🍻

"We had a great time on the Albert Cuyp Market & The Pijp, thanks to our guide Gerard. He knew a lot about Dutch foods and made the tour fun and interesting. We tried tasty dutch french toast and herring at the market, which were really good. Gerard told us cool stories about Amsterdam, making us feel like we were exploring the city with a friend. I’d recommend this tour to anyone looking to taste the real Amsterdam! "

We had an amazing time on this tour. DJ was a great tour guide and did a wonderful job sharing his knowledge and love of Amsterdam and the Jordaan neighbourhood. There were lots of different foods to taste…We actually went back to two of the establishments on other days of our trip to have dinner and drinks/dessert.

Our guide, DJ, was great! He was very knowledgeable and personable. We had just the right amount of time at each place and didn’t feel rushed. Good choices of foods to sample.

- Stephanie Bergsma

Aileen was really great with us, she waited for us though we arrived almost an hour late due to traffic! She showed us beautiful things, we tasted awesome and tasty cuisines, and I also learned a few words (lekker!!). Thank you for your kindness and happiness despite the rain! The city really is beautiful and full of wonders when you know where to look at 🙂

- Ludivine Coulon

Just as advertised and very well performed. A great selection of foods and good places to stop in at. And just the right amount of walking and touring between stops. Our tour guide, Aileen, did an outstanding job of keeping the tour moving and delivering interesting information.

- Bob Plunkett

A wonderful way to see a unique part of the city and sample terrific food. I’ve taken food tours with this company in Rome and Florence and now Amsterdam. Each tour has been unique and truly outstanding. Our guide Estephen shared interesting information about the Jordaan area and the foods we sampled. Highly recommend!
