Fabulous private tour with a lovely woman. Excellent communication. We were taken throughout the city and were able to sample a number of wonderful food specialities of Amsterdam, including the more popular Stroopwafflen to the more exotic fried plantains in an interesting curry sauce and everything in between! We topped it off with a sampling of Amsterdam beers. What fun! Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon. You won't be disappointed!

A really, really great tour with so many interesting Amsterdam food items to try out. Our guide Louke was super friendly, and also so informative not only about the cuisine, but about the places we visited and the areas we passed through as well. She was great at making sure we got our food samples quickly, even at the wonderful and quite busy city marketplace which was one of our food stops. (A personal favourite.) Thanks so much!

The guide was very nice & knowledgeable about the food in the local areas. Very opinionated about the Amsterdam community & explained the way of life, which I found very helpful.. . However, in the description of the tour said that it would also include beer tasting. But we had a comprise & he directed us to a local bar.
