Overview of the tour in Amsterdam

get to know the heart of Amsterdam with an archaeologist!

I'll tell you all about the history of the city center. You'll get a full picture of why Amsterdam is shaped the way it is today as you walk through the oldest part of the city. I will answer all your questions as we walk through some of the most iconic areas and at the same time you will be entertained by many of the anecdotes about centuries past. The tour is like walking with a friend who knows a lot about the area.

Here are some of the topics we will touch on/places we will see along the way:
Founding of the city
Jewish Quarter
Clandestine Churches
17th Century/East India Company
Canal construction and city architecture
Typical Dutch food

At the end I will give you a list with a series of recommendations that include places of interest and museums mentioned throughout the tour, as well as great places to eat, drink and party. For each of these recommendations you will have a direct link, either to buy your ticket or to find out the location of the place.

i look forward to seeing you!
