Beautiful streets and delicious Dutch delicacies…

What better way to experience the best corners of Amsterdam’s UNESCO World Heritage canals than on our combined private boat and walking food tour.

We throw away the guidebooks and take you to our favourite local haunts in Amsterdam’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. From the arts and antiques district to the famous Golden Bend, you’ll experience some of the city’s most beautiful streets and meet the local food heroes keeping Dutch food traditions alive.

Our Guides love to tell you their own city stories to enhance your experience while you eat, drink, walk and ride along the canals with a small group of like-minded people.

Our 4-hour Amsterdam Food & Canals Tour includes a guided walk through the historical corners of Amsterdam; an hour-long private boat ride along the city’s world heritage canals; and a dozen delicious tastings at authentic Dutch food stops along the way – all in one!

Let’s dig into Amsterdam together and explore this historic city in all its glory.

We were on a 12 day trip through multiple cities in Europe and at the end, we all universally agreed the food on this tour was the best of anything we had on the entire trip! We found the canals and views of the city beautiful. Aileen was an excellent guide – very personable and easy to talk to. Thanks for an awesome tour!

- Michelle (Tripadvisor Review)

The Food and Canals tour was very good. The tour itself was interesting and the food was great. Our guide Jelte was excellent: he knew what he was talking about and seems to fit in that job perfectly. Definitely worth every penny!

- Katja Ryynänen

Fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide and of course we loved the food.

- Scott Borklund
