Breathtaking canals, legendary foodie spots and the city’s best kept secrets…

In Amsterdam there are more canal cruises to count but few of them take place on beautifully restored wooden saloon boats where the views are enjoyed while sipping on a local craft beer and biting into some steaming hot bitterballen.

And when you are ready to stretch your sea legs we will guide you down some of our favorite neighborhood backstreets so you can discover some of the best Dutch delicacies like real apple pie, crispy bitterballen and hot strop waffle… just to name a few. And even better you will meet some of the local food artisans who are not only preserving these Dutch foodie traditions but elevating them to new levels.

What you’ll Experience on this tour:

  • 1 hour guided private canal cruise on a vintage, wooden Saloon Boat enjoyed with beer and bitterballen
  • 2.5 hour walking food tour to some of Amsterdam’s best kept foodie secrets
  • Hear stories about Amsterdam’s fascinating history and unique culture
  • All the tips and tricks that will ensure you can keep exploring the city as a local

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.
