Description

Of course, it is interesting to see Dam Square and the Royal palace, but they will never give you a complete image of how this city actually lives.
Therefore, we would love to show you our favorite hidden places too: humpback bridges, hidden chapels, cozy courtyards, mysterious brown bars, best pastry shop and a second-hand book market, hiding in the gateway of the old univercity.

We will start our walking tour at the Amsterdam Centraal Station - one of the most fabolous buildings in this city. Strolling along the canals, we will get to former waterfront district of Amsterdam, famous for its old atmosphere and cozy brown bars of 17th century, which are very much loved by locals. Would you like to try some Dutch beer and find out, where you could pay for it with monkeys back in the Golden Age time? Then let's make a little stop in one of those bars!

What will we see after? There are will be a lot of canals, old crooked or narrowest houses and majestic churches on our way. We will definitely pay special attention to Chinatown, cozy Begijnhof, famous flower market, medieval building of the weight chamber, Royale palace, local design stores, authentic cafes and marvelous places, carefully hidden from tourists. Would you like to see how Dutch people protect butterflies in the city center? Or where do they buy best chocolate freshly baked cookies? We will show you!

We would like to share with you some interesting facts, starting from history of Amsterdam and ending with stories about social initiatives and innovation projects. Would you like to get to know more about history and political system of this country? Or are you more interested in modern life, street culture and innovations? Or would you like us to tell you about the most important, exciting or boring things for Dutch people and discuss the national character? It is an individual guided tour, which makes it absolutely flexible to your interest preferences! Therefore, we will be very glad to tell you about everything you are interested in! :)

Fantastic quality time in Amsterdam
I visited many tours with Your Own Holland (Amsterdam highlights, Amsterdam Jordan area, Jewish Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, tours in farms) and every time I get so much positivity, knowledge, exciting facts, stories to remember, stories to share with friends and family and most importantly, their team is just fantastic! Each guide is extremely knowledgeable, very warm and pleasant person.

Happy to visit again and again!
