About this activity
Meet your guide in Dam Square to start your morning walking tour of Amsterdam. Begin with a stroll around the historical center, filled with inviting side streets, perfectly preserved 17th-century gabled houses and peaceful tree-lined canals filled with traditional Dutch houseboats.

View the Royal Palace, the famous Dutch East Indies company, the Begijnhof courtyard with its hidden church, the Amsterdam Museum and the old city gates. See the homes of famous historical figures as you walk by the Anne Frank House, Descartes' House and the Rembrandt House Museum.

Wander the alleys of the notorious Red Light District (de Wallen), walk down the busy shopping street of Kalverstraat, and pass by the many upscale art galleries, speciality shops and restaurants of the Jordaan district.

As you walk, your guide will bring to life more than 800 years of Amsterdam's history, arts, culture and architecture, from the city’s humble beginnings on the Amstel River to the glorious Golden Age to today. Your 3-hour tour concludes at Westerchurch, giving you the rest of the afternoon to continue exploring on your own.

Natalie was a wonderful tour guide. We had a relatively small group and it was easy to hear everything and move along in a timely manner. Natalie had lots of interesting information to share. Tour was very interactive and it was a friendly group. I highly recommend this tour for a great introduction to Amsterdam. It was time well spent.

I'm glad i booked a walking tour on my first full day in Amsterdam. There is so much going on all around it helped to have someone who had a familiarity and knowledge of the city. It was nice that it was a small group and we all had the opportunity to walk and talk with Ollie individually. Ollie was very knowledgeable and a nice guy.

My husband and I enjoyed our walking tour with Ollie. He was personable and informative. He did an excellent job of providing enough history so that we left with a good understanding of the city without overwhelming us with facts and dates, I would highly recommend this tour.

Great experience! We learned a lot and laughed even more! Thanks Chloe! It was my first time in Amsterdam and this tour was a wonderful mix of history, learning about the Dutch psyche, and finding good places we want to go back to. Got us off to a good start on our very short time in Amsterdam!

It was a little rain, then sunshine, but the guide (Chloe) was very knowledgable for an American in Netherlands), very pleasant and made the tour extremely enjoyable. We got to understand a little about the culture, and the norms of the Dutch. Very enjoyable. The only downside was the weather.

This three-hour walking tour was well worth the cost. Our guide, originally from Wisconsin, spoke with knowledge and humour. We learned a lot about the past and present of this fascinating and beautiful city without the feeling of being overwhelmed with information.

The tour guide (Chloe) was super informative and fun -- you can really tell she loves the area and her job, her enthusiasm was infectious. :) Not only did she give a great tour, she also handed out her contact info so that if happened to have any questions after the tour, she'd be willing to help out! A+

While seeing landmark sites of Amsterdam, walking through side streets and sometime even alleys, it brings you much closer to the city. This combined with the history lessons of Amsterdam make this a good choice for seeing Amsterdam. It is a lot of walking, but well worth it! Oliver was our Brit tour guide and the small group maee it a more personal tour experience.

Enjoyed a really good walking tour of Amsterdam last Tuesday with Chloe from WOW tours. Gave us a real feel for the city with just the right amount of information. Avoiding the overload that can happen with some tour guides. Highly recommended as a good introduction to a visit to lovely Amsterdam.

An ok tour but guide was not very informative. We didn't visit many highlights such as Central Station, Rembrants Square or Ann Frank's house which was a disappointment. I think this tour could be better!

Highly recommended if you want to see a lot of Amsterdam in 3 hrs - you are on the move all the time so be prepared to do a lot of walking!. Well worth it.

Our knowledgeable guide combined historical fact with anecdotes insuring that the past came alive. He navigated alley ways to keep us away from the crowds. An enjoyable, reasonably paced walking tour.

Tyler was the absolute best guide we could have asked for, hands down!!! His knowledge of the history of Amsterdam was so impressive and his personality set him apart from anyone else. We went on a Viking River Cruise the next day and had 6 tour guides on that trip, and they all paled in comparison to Tyler!! Not kidding! I highly recommend this tour as you get to see so many different areas of the city. He also recommended a local restaurant, Tomaz, if we were looking for authentic Dutch cuisine. We went there for a late lunch and it was amazing. Thank you so much Tyler, you are a true gem and Viator is very lucky to have you.
