Spend some time in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam, an artsy bohemian area that reads like a grid of tiny lanes jam-packed with quirky bars, Malaysian eateries and food stalls.

In a personalized experience with one of our Amsterdam hosts by your side, you will eat and drink your way through this historic neighborhood, gaining a feel for the flavors of Amsterdam and her heritage.

Dutch cheese is world renowned, so dive into as many samples as you can stomach, or try some Dutch herring. The local method of consumption is to grab the tiny fish by its tail and… bottoms up!

Let your host lead you from bars to eateries and ask them about traditional Dutch food. You might be surprised to learn that Malaysian food, Malaysia being a former Dutch colony, has made a large impression on the cuisine scene in Amsterdam.

The Dutch are also the world’s largest consumers of licorice (drop). Who knew? Why not purchase some far out flavor as a present for those back home?

  • Join a host to uncover Amsterdam’s food culture and taste the classic local dishes found in the Jordaan area

  • Explore the 17th century, bohemian Jordaan neighborhood whilst eating and drinking your way around its markets, cafes, street food stalls, and local delis

  • Sample 8 local dishes and drinks, from traditional Dutch foods like herring to Malaysian dishes as well as some locally brewed craft beer or coffee

  • Try artisanal produce like smoked sausage and locally made Dutch cheeses

  • Get recommendations from your host regarding other places to eat and drink at in the city

Reviews for Amsterdam


Our host was charming and attentive. The pace of the tour was just right and we got to see places we would not have found on our own. Well worth the experience!

Informational and engaging!

Our tour with Anna was perfect! She contacted us prior to our visit and she had a great plan prepared. As our day unfolded, we found that our interests changed and she created paths and conversations to follow our new ideas! She is a knowledgeable and engaging guide!
