Amsterdam is by nature a small and compact city and is ideal for discovery on foot! Walking around Amsterdam is like stepping into an giant open-air museum – many parts have not changed for hundreds of years. Our Amsterdam Discovery walking tour takes you on a 2 hour stroll around the centre of the city, highlighting famous cultural and architectural sites and giving you an understanding of Amsterdam’s rich and vibrant history.
We’ll look at how the city began over 800 years ago and how it expanded during the 17th Century Golden Age with the construction of the Grachtengordel (canal belt) and explain the formation of the Dutch East and West India Companies. We will stroll along the canals and discover in detail how and why the canals they were built, before passing the Westerkerk, mentioned frequently in the Diary of Anne Frank.
As a private walking tour, this walk is fully customisable – you choose the pick-up and drop off points, tell us your interests and preferences and we’ll design a custom-walk for you. This walk is ideal for the first time visitor to Amsterdam as well as those who would like a more in-depth view of the city.
