Why book this tour
Surprising Dutch cuisine
What makes this tour extra special is the diversity of different places you will visit. For example, you will enjoy brand-fresh homemade Dutch apple pie in a typical 'brown cafe', visit a fantastic cheese store that ripens its own cheeses in an old bunker and delivers them to numerous Michelin restaurants and you will end in the former 17th century headquarters of the Dutch West India Company where once the decision was made to found New Amsterdam, later known as....New York.
Food and history tour in one
Not only will you taste the most delicious Dutch food, but you will also learn all about its background and what role it has played in the past and present in Dutch and Amsterdam culture. The tour leads you through the Jordaan, which was built in the early 17th century to house the many workers and immigrants who came from all over Europe to seek their fortune in booming Amsterdam and today is perhaps the most popular neighborhood among Amsterdammers themselves. Between tastings, we will tell you all about Amsterdam's history and show you the special places the city is famous for such as the leaning houses and the beautiful canals.
Comfortable and relaxed
And not only because of the delicious food and the fascinating tour through the most beautiful neighborhoods of Amsterdam, we call this 'The Grand Dutch Food Tour'. Because we also give you a 'Grand' feeling with our warm hospitality and personal attention, made possible by the small groups of up to 9 guests led by local and expert guides, each of whom has lived and worked in Amsterdam for many years. In cases of inclement weather, all tastings are moved indoors and most venues have reserved seating so you can comfortably enjoy the food and each other's company.
