Wow, what a great tour with a fantastic guide, DJ. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Amsterdam and enjoys learning about the local culture through food. During our 2.5 hours we walked through the Jordaan District and learned about the history of the area and it's merchants. It is obvious DJ is very knowledgeable and proud of his city. We enjoyed the best apple pie we've ever eaten from a place that has been in business since the 1600's. We visited a cheese shop and sampled 3 distinct types of cheese, a butcher in business since the 1890's, we had traditional herring as well as Genever (a old time fisherman's gin). A few more stops and samples kept us full and happy for the rest of the day. If you can request a tour with DJ do it. You won't be disappointed.

This was a gear tour. We liked the mix of Amsterdam culture and history that we got along with the good food. This was a great way to people to check off some Dutch food staples while learning more about the city. Our guide Renae was super friendly and knowledgeable. It was kinda pricey but I think worth it!

An informative stroll around a nice part of Amsterdam. Delicious food in significant quantities. Although I wouldn't bother with the place with the chicken and bacon roll (not up to the standard of the others) The guide was lovely
