You have to meet the people of the Jordaan to understand why it’s one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. It’s humble, working class beginnings helped shape this neighbourhood into the historic, authentic, delicious, friendly neighbourhood it is today. We want to help you explore and dig deep into this 17th- century neighbourhood, just off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. You will visit our locals in the very same shops and cafes they’ve been running for generations(You’ll even experience their uniquely Jordanian sense of humour!) You’ll visit hidden courtyards, wander tiny back streets, and watch the boats drift by on the canals. Our local guides love to tell you their own Amsterdam stories, enhancing your experience while you eat, drink and walk along our canals with friends. Take a break from being a tourist and experience the real Amsterdam with us.

Our 3.5-hour Jordaan Food Tour is so much more than meets the eye: it’s a guided walk through the unique cultural and historical sights of the Jordaan neighbourhood; and it’s a substantial meal in the form of a dozen delicious Dutch tastings from plenty of authentic foodie stops along the way – all in one!

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!

Food Heroes

Extraordinary food is made by extraordinary people.
Whenever we find very special food in Amsterdam (whether it's a creative bitterballen, a unique variety of cheese or a warm, indulgent stroopwafel), we know behind each culinary creation is someone who is very passionate about what they do.

On our tours, you’ll not only taste these delicious treats but you’ll also get a chance to meet the people who prepare them.

Food tastes even better when you know the story behind it.
