At no less than 8 food stops we will treat you to all the classics, including herring, Gouda cheese, bitterballen and authentic Dutch apple pie (appeltaart) and we will add a little spice from the east with a taste of the Indonesian ‘rijsttafel’. Take your pick of the locally brewed artisan beers or you might want to try one of the many Dutch ‘jenevers’ (gins).

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Intimate

By limiting our group sizes to 10 guests, avoiding the busiest spots of Amsterdam and exploring the lesser-known areas we ensure a fun and relaxing food tour. You will not miss a thing and there will be ample opportunity to ask any questions you have. You will soon feel at home in the group. There will almost always be a seat available at the food stops, added to which, the vendors will often have time for a short chat. Leave the rat race at home.

Genuine

We strongly believe that you will not truly get to know and understand Amsterdam and its people until you walk its streets with someone who eats, lives, loves and breathes the city. This is why we only work with experienced and professional Dutch guides, who have lived in Amsterdam for many years. They know every street corner and alleyway. And every local flavor. They are always on the lookout for new experiences and stories to share with you. Not because they have to, but to still their own relentless curiosity. We will take you to the same places where we buy our own groceries, go for a beer, or eat out. Don’t expect scripted stories from us, because Amsterdam is never the same, from one day to the next.

Generous

learn more

Amsterdam Food Tours is hospitality at its best. We are a small, yet professional group of food tour guides who simply wish to celebrate the good life with you. And because we happily lack expensive offices and distant managers, we can spend more money on food and drinks with you. It goes without saying that when there is something special in season, and there usually is, we will include it in our tour. And we regularly come across a new shop during our tour or find that a new market stall has suddenly appeared. It would be a shame not to share that with you, so we’ll happily take a little detour to try something new and get your opinion on it.

Flexible
