On this full-day private Amsterdam tour, we’ll weave our way both on two feet and two wheels through the city’s history and modern growth, with plenty of tasty stops along the way! This private tour is a combination of our three top-selling Amsterdam tours (Bikes & Dyks, Amsterdam Food by Foot, and The Original Amsterdam Beer Tour), so you'll get a taste of it all in one epic urban adventure!
We’ll start out downtown and cycle our way out to the northern dijks (dykes). As we ride, we’ll hit up historical sites in the financial district and get an up-close look at the city’s defenses, learning how windmills, canals, and walls helped to build this nation and its people.
After all that cycling, it’s time to fuel up! We’ll abandon our bikes and immediately start the food adventure part of our Amsterdam tour, with a visit to the Spui square, and the southern part of Amsterdam’s old city centre. You’ll find out why locals love snacking on hot, salty vlaams friets by trying some yourself. We’ll also take a quick tour of a cafeteria, go for a stroll through a cheese shop, eat some puffed-up pancakes, and digest while we tour the oldest restaurant district in the centre of town. Then, after a sip of liquor, it’ll be three more stops and eventually a sit-down for a beer tasting. Phew!
Next up, we’ll walk off all that food and drink with a wander along the beautiful streets of central Amsterdam, stopping in the northern half of the downtown area to sample local beers and learn about the Belgian and German influences that have shaped the Dutch brewing industry. You’ll learn about the spots where Amsterdam warehouses used to store beer back in the 15th century, then take a detour through the Red Light District to visit a small brewery located in this infamous area.
Your private Total Amsterdam Tour will finish here, but you’re free to keep exploring the area — we can give you some local tips so your Amsterdam adventure doesn’t have to end just yet.
