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.

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!

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.
