What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Amsterdam, you'll discover the best local Dutch food experience. We'll educate you about how the locals dine out and why it's so unique. We'll walk through streets that are a living part of our history and every building and courtyard tells a story. Your guide will introduce you to family-run businesses and restaurants. And of course you will be able to eat all the delicious food.

All the food will be served with quality drinks or if you prefer, non-alcoholic beverages. A thoughtfully curated Upgraded Drinks Package is available.

  • We'll taste Stamppot, a local favorite.
  • Finally, a delicious stroopwafel for dessert.

WHY JORDAAN AREA?

The Jordaan area has a long history of assissimlating merchants, sailors, workers, and immigrants. This open arm atmosphere combined with our quaint streets, and small canals named after flowers, have created a unique area within Amsterdam. Here, families have stayed for generations and they speak a dialect uniquely their own. Another treasure to spring out of this historic enclave is our traditional Dutch Folk music, "smartlap". In addition, the Jordaan area is connected to one off the most important canals in Amsterdam. As with many areas within the Netherlands, change is happening. Jordaan has been able to balance its rich cultural history with change time brings, so visitors to this area enjoy lively bars and restaurants along with quaint smaller more traditional business all within the same winding streets.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
