Discover wonderful Amsterdam and historical highlights from Golden Age times to contemporary lifestyle!

On this private walking tour we will explore the Dutch cultural heritage of the city centre, unique for its large and untouched history; social background, Golden Age history, stunning architecture, picturesque canal views and famous city landmarks!
On our tour we will pass the Royal Palace, National Monument, the Canal District - an Unesco Heritage Site, the quite Begijnhof midst the buzzy centre, the floating Flower Market and of course the Red Light District, along with legendary cityscapes. And of course we will taste some Dutch cheese!
Optional but a must - round up your tour with a canal boat ride - for an hour, with a wonderful wooden boat and an exceptional local skipper!
