JORDAAN WALK & BOAT TOUR
Forget about the calories and treat yourself to a plate of 'POFFERTJES' small, fluffy pancakes with lots of butter and powder sugar...the Dutch have been loving this since the 1800's. Drink it with some freshly brewed coffees or teas at a former canal house alongside the Prinsengracht
The French call it 'charcuterie' , the Dutch say 'worst en vleeswaren' and for the best, like OSSENWORST, we have to be at Slagerij Louman. This family run butcher shop, with Mr Frans Louman now in charge, has been in business since 1890 and is world famous in Amsterdam for its' Ossenworst, Rookvlees, Grillworst and Kruidnagelworst. You are going to taste it all!
Our food heroes Michel and Jorrit are members of a fishmonger family that started its' first fish shop in the 1920's so they really knows their fish. Eat their HERRING and KIBBELING (fried cod pieces) and you will want to come back to this place over and over again. Not to forget, we also have a special drink for you made from something that is very Dutch..
Hop on board of a beautiful vintage wooden boat to cruise the Amsterdam canal belt area and the old city. Wash away your BITTERBALLEN and DUTCH CHEESE with local craft beers and even try a Dutch white wine. And of course we have a choice of non alcohol drinks as well!
Meet Opa Tiel, owner of the most beautiful 'bruine café' in Amsterdam located in a 450 years old building. When he started his café 52 years ago his grandmother gave him her recipe that is still being used today for a homemade APPELTAART that made Bill Clinton come back for it twice!
The Dutch love their cookies and the STROOPWAFEL is the ultimate classic one. It all started in the Dutch town of Gouda (yes, like the cheese) around a 150 years ago and they can be found everywhere. But be aware they come in many varieties and qualities, we will make sure you will have the best ones and learn you a trick how to enjoy them even more.
With more then 180 nationalities Amsterdam is a truly cosmopolitan city and this has also hugely influenced Dutch food. Get a pick from the RIJSTTAFEL with SATAY AJAM and learn how the food culture of the former Dutch colonies Indonesia and Suriname blended.

Amsterdam Food Tours was founded in 2018 by a small group of expert Amsterdam food guides. We have lived in Amsterdam for many years and in addition to being seasoned, local guides we are also chefs, artists or teachers in this city that we love so deeply and know so well. Each one of us has our own specific stories that we are longing to share with you and we aim to turn each and every tour into a unique experience, together with you, our guest. It is our belief that a perfect food tour should be an intimate, genuine and generous experience with respect for our guests, vendors and the citizens of Amsterdam. We are small enough to be personal and big enough to be professional. Being independent and having no distant managers or marketing departments to pay for, we can happily spend more on great food and have a maximum of 10 guests per guide. We regard the shop and restaurant owners as our friends not as business relations and this you will notice by their warm welcome and attention for you. Amsterdam is a fantastic place attracting many visitors, which sometimes puts pressure on the citizens. For that reason we stay away from the busiest areas and try to schedule our tours when the city is not too busy.
