Enjoy a walking tour of the best of Amsterdam’s highlights with a private guide. On your tour, you will explore several of Amsterdam top locations from the Joordan District and Westerkerk to Dam Square and the BloemenmarktBeginning in Jordaan, you'll explore the beautiful district that was traditionally a rather poor neighborhood, attracted amazing artists and poets, including Rembrandt and the famous 17th-century Dutch writer Joost van den Vondel. Now, it is a bustling center of creativity, full of young artists, entrepreneurs and trendy students taking their coffee in the myriad trendy cafes and restaurants. You will also see Westerkerk, which at its completion in 1631, was one of the earliest purpose-built Protestant churches.From there, follow your guide to Dam Square. Learn how the city and dam grew until it became large enough for a town square, and it has been at Amsterdam’s heart ever since. Paved with the Dutch capital’s distinctive cobblestones, today the square holds some of the city’s most notable attractions including Madame Tussaud’s, the 15th century Gothic Nieuwe Kerk, the Royal Palace and the swish department store De Bijenkorf.Then, have the chance to spot the Bloemenmarkt, which has floated on Amsterdam's innermost canal since 1862. Historically, barges used to sail here up the Amstel from their smallholdings; today daily fresh flowers arrive by van, and fifteen florists and garden shops display their colorful wares in an array of covered stalls that are perched on piles.Your tour will finish with tickets to board a canal cruise, so you can do one of the most iconic things in Amsterdam - see the city by water.
