What to expect

The Grand Dutch Food Tour is the most comprehensive, fun, interesting and diverse Dutch food and history tour of Amsterdam. 


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.

In addition, this is also a history tour where between tastings you will learn about Amsterdam from its earliest beginnings through the Golden Age to the present in an inspiring and entertaining way. 

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. 

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. But we'll also show you the world-famous Amsterdam canals and canal houses where the rich merchants of the Golden Age lived and stored their merchandise from all over the world. 

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 8 guests led by local and expert guides, each of whom has lived and worked in Amsterdam for many years. 

What kind of food do you serve?

During the tour you will visit 6 amazing food spots but these and the tastings sometimes vary from day to day. We do this because we want you to taste the best Dutch food but sometimes places are closed. Then we rather serve a good alternative than let you taste something of inferior quality. And on Saturdays, when the weather is dry, we like to visit the market in the Jordaan for some fantastic tastings. This may sound complicated but you can be assured that every tasting is traditionally Dutch. And regular items on every tour are: apple pie, cheese, sausages and meat spreads, 'bitterballen' and a 'rice table' item served. If you would like more information on this please feel free to contact us. 


Can you cater for dietary restrictions and allergies?

We can take care of most dietary requirements such as vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free, no shellfish or nut-free. You can specify this with your booking. Unfortunately, the tour is not suitable for vegan and dairy-free diets. If you have specific questions about this, please let us know.  


How much is the walking?

Since the food places visited may vary each day, so does the route but keep in mind that you will walk between 2 and 3 kilometers on easy terrain. Between each tasting you'll walk and stand for about 20 minutes. Most tastings are inside with reserved seating. If you or one of your travel companions are less mobile, we recommend you contact us for advice. And in any case, we can organize a private tour adapted to everyone's mobility. 


What is your cancellation policy?

Travel does not always go as you planned so we like to be flexible and you can therefore cancel 'The Grand Dutch Food Tour' free of charge up to 48 hours before the start of the tour. Click here for our detailed terms and conditions of sale. 


Does the tour go on if the weather is bad?

Yes the tour always goes on unless there is an extreme weather warning ("code orange"). But no worries, we can do all the tastings inside and actually we think bad weather really suits Dutch food....
