The story of Amsterdam’s origins and further development on the water’s edge.
Amsterdam owed its great prosperity in the Golden Age to commerce and shipping. This guided tour features relics from the days of the Dutch East India Company, the West India Company, the corn trade and Admiral Michiel de Ruyter. But there’s also plenty to see and learn about from later times. And you’ll never be far from the IJ waterfront.
Start is tue-sun 11:00 or 14:00 in groups of max 10 persons.
Please be there 15 minutes before start walk.
Restaurant Luciens, Sint Luciënsteeg 15, Amsterdam.
Expert, engaging and generous guide
Hans could not have been a more considerate guide for myself and my parents (one of whom cannot walk long distances). He had clearly considered his route to avoid the busiest streets while still being able to share fascinating details about the history, architecture and culture of Amsterdam
