'Jordaan' district in the Amsterdam city centre

You will clearly recognize your guide at the starting point of the tour, by the folder with the Amsterdam Food Tours logo.

If you are late we will try to telephone you to help you find your way and, of course, you can always phone us.

The tour is over flat surfaces and the route is approximately 2 kilometers. In between the tastings we’ll walk a maximum of 20 minutes, often much shorter.

During 3 tastings we’ll be at a restaurant or café with toilets. The other tastings are almost always indoors and there is usually seating available, if required.

Be sure to come with an appetite, because we’re going to spoil you with loads of delicious food, right from the start of the tour. And you most probably will want to skip the next meal after the tour as well!

The tour ends only a 5-minute-walk away from the starting point at a cozy and typical Jordaan café in a centuries-old canal house. Why not stick around after the food tour?
