What you will eat and drink
Your guide welcomes you in front of one of Amsterdam’s most iconic and centuries-old ‘brown cafes’ where you will taste the famous homemade Dutch apple pie just like Bill Clinton once did. For beverages you can choose a non-alcoholic drink, draft beer or wine and if you opted for the ‘Drinks Upgrade’* there is a wide choice of local craft beers, Dutch gins and liqueurs or maybe you are up for a festive Prosecco.
Next you will visit three more unique places to sample typical Dutch snacks and street food including a tasting of Dutch Gouda farmhouse cheeses at a popular local delicatessen where you can also do your food souvenir shopping.
You will also get a taste of Indonesian-Surinamese food that has strongly influenced the Dutch food culture with dishes like the ‘rijsttafel’ (rice table) and you will learn where these foreign influences come from.
The tour ends in a former 17th century canal house, now a popular pub, along the ‘Prinsengracht’ (Prince Canal) for a final tasting of your choice: ‘bitterballen’ (the most famous Dutch savory pub snack) or ‘poffertjes’ (soft mini pancakes with powdered sugar and butter). Again you will be served a drink whether or not in combination with your ‘Drinks Ugrade’.
Not just a food tour
The Jordaan Dutch Food Tour is not only a food tour but also introduces you to the history of Amsterdam and the Jordaan neighborhood in particular.
In between tastings, you will walk through the picturesque neighborhood with its small streets, centuries-old houses and numerous boutique stores, cafes and restaurants. Your guide will of course tell you about the special places you encounter so that you get a good impression of the history of Amsterdam and the Jordaan.
This former working-class area was built in the early 17th century to house immigrants who came to Amsterdam from all over The Netherlands and Europe in search of work or freedom of believe. After a long period of dire poverty and decay, the neighborhood regained popularity and today is one of Amsterdam’s most beloved neighborhoods.
* Two non alcohol drinks, draft beers or glasses of wine are included in the price, when you checkout your tickets online you can choose the ‘Drinks Upgrade’ for €10 per adult. This allows you to choose two local craft beers, Dutch gins and liqueurs, Prosecco or a cocktail of your choice.

"Our family of five had a fabulous food tour our first day in Amsterdam. It was more than a food tour, it was an introduction to the history of the city. We enjoyed fabulous local food while hearing about the culture and customs. It was a small group so you didn’t feel like a tourist. DO IT!!"
