As Featured In

As recommended by 99% of users on TripAdvisor

The medieval city of Haarlem is one of the most photogenic cities in the Netherlands. Traditionally a market town, it is now a bustling city with countless cafes and restaurants. Only a quick 15 minutes from Amsterdam, come for a day or two to wander the cobbled streets lined with ancient buildings. We’ll introduce you to our locals in the very same shops and cafes they’ve been running for generations. You’ll visit hidden courtyards and learn about the history of this magical city.

Our local guides love to tell you their own Haarlem stories, enhancing your experience while you eat, drink and explore.

We will enjoy 7 authentic tasting stops, interact with the local owners, and experience first-hand the Haarlem way of life.

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!
