Amsterdam Jordaan District Food Walking Tour
Once a working-class neighborhood, Jordaan is now a sought-after area full of specialty shops, inviting cafes and world-class restaurants. Walk along canals and past historical buildings and off-the-beaten-path cultural attractions on your way to some favorite local haunts, where you’ll meet the people keeping Dutch food traditions alive.
Visit eight authentic food shops and eateries, and enjoy 12 tastings of Dutch specialties such as licorice, smoked sausage, herring, gouda cheese and bitterballen (fried meat balls), and try some unique Dutch food with an Indonesian flare.
In between stops, your guide — a passionate foodie and expert local — will entertain you with stories and insights into Amsterdam’s history and culture. Pause in front of Anne Frank House, find some hidden churches and discover what used to be in the Jordaan area hundreds of years ago.
With a happy belly and loads of interesting Amsterdam insight, your tour concludes near the start point, by the Amsterdam Tulip Museum.

Guide (DJ) was very knowledgable not only regarding the food but also the neighborhood. Food selections were excellent and the tour group was very responsive. Would highly recommend this tour.
An informative stroll around a nice part of Amsterdam. Delicious food in significant quantities. Although I wouldn't bother with the place with the chicken and bacon roll (not up to the standard of the others) The guide was lovely
We loved our tour guide, Ruby, and thoroughly enjoyed all the foods that were offered to us on this tour! Go hungry and have an open mind. You will try the herring, offered with some onions and pickles and tulip vodka. Start off with an apple cake with whipped cream, then onto another cafe for cheese and sausage, stop at another place for some chicken satay; another place for herring and tulip vodka and then another place gin (Genever) and amsterdam pancakes and yet another place for a stroopwafel. Everything had it's own dutch name, but I really can't pronounce or spell any of them other than the stroopwafel! Also, learned some other history of the this tour as we strolled along the streets in the Jordaan district.
Estefan was a terrific guide. So insightful and charming. We loved our Jordaan tour. Completely recommend it!
One of the best food tours we have done anywhere in the world. Our guide was fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this one!
We had Estefan as our guide and he was fantastic. Great history of the city and the places that we went to. We had 8 stops with about 17 different foods/drinks to try. Plenty of food, you will not be hungry after this tour. We used all 4 hours plus some extra. All the stops were ready for us and they put out their best foods. We always do a food tour in each new city, this ranks as one of the best!!
It was very good. We had very knowledgeable guide,, very tasty food. The most interesting part was the stories behind the family businesses.
This was a wonderful tour and our guide was terrific. He provided great local knowledge of food, customs and history and blended it all together to keep us engaged. The stops on the tour included little pancakes, herring, local sausage and beef, local baked goods, food from Surinam, a popular pub snack and apple pie. Moved at a great pace. Totally full at the end but such great bites and plenty of ideas of places to go back to. Wouldn't hesitate to do another food tour with this group or an art tour with our guide.
A very enjoyable tour although more than a little difficult to find starting point if this is your first visit to Amsterdam. The tour guide was kind enough to allow us to start our tour at the second restaurant. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and choices of restaurants offered a nice variety of foodstuffs. All in all I would definitely recommend this tour to get a nice overview of Amsterdam's cuisine.
