We really enjoyed this tour with Helena - she's a fantastic guide with great energy. We learned a lot about why Amsterdam looks the way it is now, got a lot of recommendations for places and restaurants, and of course tried new foods. The perfect activity to start getting to know Jordaan and Dutch food.

We went on this food tour on our second day In Amsterdam on a Saturday. Jordaan was a quaint town and we visited so many off the beaten path restaurants and shops that we would have never been able to find on our own. It was noticeably less crowded than the city center, which made for a very enjoyable experience. Our tour only had 5 people so we all got to spend time with our guide Gerard who even gave us tips for what to do and where to eat during the remainder of our stay. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of the city and spoke perfect English. We could tell that he really enjoys his job. The food itself was a great experience. We tasted many traditional Dutch dishes such as apple tart, bitterballen, and herring plus some other unexpected dishes like satay which we didn’t know had historical ties to the city. Would definitely recommend this tour!!

Make sure your shoes are made for walking because that’s just what you’ll do. Mine where not. Nevertheless, I would do it all over again, in the same bad shoes because that was how much I enjoyed the tour. Some yummy food with a side of history. The guide was knowledgeable, welcoming, and helpful. Thanks so much for the wonderful, ly tasty, tour!
