Bitterballen

Fabulous tour!

We really enjoyed the tour. We tasted many things that are unique to Amsterdam and the Dutch capital. Jacopo provided lots of interesting information about the history. He was a great guide. The walking was very easy, and the restaurants were accommodating. Also lucky we had a good group of people on our tour.

Adam

Awesome food!

Very friendly guide, a very nice and interesting area, and what I believe was a good sampling of what the Dutch eat. We felt like on a private food tour, as the group was very small. The guide gave us interesting information about the city overall, and he responded to all our questions. We would suggest it to someone who hasn’t done much research and would like some introduction.
