Why the Old City?

Amsterdam Old City

Our tour starts in the beautiful, historic Canal Area. Our first stop is by the biggest and most interesting of the canals, the Herengracht or Gentlemens Canal, where the wealthy merchants built their palaces during the Golden Age of the 17th century.

We'll also visit the oldest part of the city, dating back to the 12th century, passing the Trading House and Dam Square with the Holocaust Monument, The Royal Palace, and the New Church.

All of these areas are rich in beautiful architecture and fascinating history, the perfect place for a Secret Beer Tour!
