Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours - Amsterdam's Jordaan District Walking Tour - Private
Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours: This customizable private walking tour of the Amsterdam Jordaan Area will show many of its highlights from a local perspective. Besides being one of the city's hotspots today, the district also has a long history as a working class area. Our tour will let you experience both worlds of the Jordaan!
Your morning or afternoon in this area will start at the statue of Anne Frank at the foot of the West Church (westerkerk). Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this district.
The Jordaan district of Amsterdam is definitely known as one of the real hotspots of Amsterdam. The origins of the area can be traced back to the 17th century where it is believed to have been erected for the city's labourers and immigrants. Many of these immigrants originated from France or near, and then being the agricultural part of town, were subsequently named Jardin which is French for garden. This word eventually changed into Jordaan, the name of the district today.
As a working class neighbourhood this area ceased to exist in the 1980s. Due to urban renewal the rent price rose and many of the original inhabitants moved to satelite towns such as Purmerend and Almere. After their departure the area became the trendy place to be, attracting students, artists and young entrepeneurs. During the walk your guide will enlighten you with many stories and anecdotes about these contrasting periods in the Jordaan.
We will also visit a typical Dutch "Hofje" (inner court or patio garden) and show you the famous Westchurch and many small streets and idyllic canals. On Mondays and Saturdays we will also visit a vibrant local market.
In addition to all the sights, your personal Jordaan guide will reveal the district’s unique character, teach you local history and culture, and give you insider’s tips about great local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities, public transport and more.

Zundert’s flower parade is an annual explosion of dahlias. Zundert’s village districts, made up of 20 teams, are engaged in a yearly competition to build the finest float to be judged by a professional and independent jury.
All summer long the floats are being built. By the end of August they are ready except for one important detail: the flowers. Of course, the dahlias can only be fixed on the floats at the very last moments, since they would wither if applied earlier. This is a challenging job that has to be performed within just a few days. Hundreds of volunteers are drummed up in every village quarter to work through the night to get their float finished just before the Sunday parade.
A professional jury ranks the floats and only the winner may stop at the second passage along the main grandstands, resulting in an emotional outbreak dubbed the ‘Zundert jubilee’. Fun fact: Vincent van Gogh was born in Zundert. He enjoyed a privileged childhood in the village.

The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th Century. All these buildings were brought here from 1961 onwards bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region.
In its golden age the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy: wood sawn by machine, grounding spices, oil for food and paint, flower, cocoa powder and many other things.
The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns and other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners and merchants.

Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours - Hard Rock Cafe Amsterdam – skip the line
Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours: Rockin’ away in the heart of Amsterdam you'll find great American classic dining and a museum's worth of rock memorabilia at the Hard Rock Café. Enjoy a signature Hard Rock cocktail on the canal side terrace or tuck into one of the legendary burgers while admiring a collection that includes items from rock 'n' roll legends, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones. And you can get in touch with your music side at the interactive Rock Wall.
Like all great revolutions, the Hard Rock Cafe wasn’t meant to succeed. It was 1971 and as the Swinging Sixties had given way to the Super Seventies, fashions and tastes were changing. Two hungry young Americans were in London and couldn’t find a decent place to eat a decent burger… so they opened up a joint in the English capital. Their landlord didn’t think it would last and gave them just a six-month lease. Four decades later, there almost 200 Hard Rock Cafes in more than 50 countries worldwide.
The first T-shirt hit the streets in ‘74 and the first piece of memorabilia came, fittingly, by chance in ‘79 when Eric Clapton asked to hang his Lead II Fender guitar over his favourite bar stool and thus mark as his spot. Today, the rock 'n' roll collection has more than 74,000 pieces and is the largest of its kind. By 1982, the Hard Rock Cafe had gone global and the rest, as they say, is history (that’s still being written)! Vinyl Menu:

Pannekoeken are a traditional Dutch treat — sometimes sweet, sometimes savoury, but always delicious! Enjoy this two-hour pancake lunch with our local chef after shopping for ingredients at our favourite neighbourhood shops! The Dutch base their meals on what they call “the trinity”: two veggies and a meat (oh, and don’t forget the Raypenaer cheese, please!), and our chef will teach you about these traditions in Dutch cuisine, as you enjoy a classic meal of pannekoeken.
Full Itinerary:
· This tour is a part of the Urban Adventures Home Cooked series and aims to give you one of the richest travelling experiences you can ever have — the opportunity to enjoy a meal in a local home.
The aim is for you to experience life exactly how it is. This experience will be no different than a local having dinner with any of their friends or relatives. It is the chance to hang out in the kitchen (customs and space willing) and chat about your life and theirs, the affairs of the day that are impacting and bringing joy into their home, and to feel for a few hours just how the locals really live.
You will be met at the meeting point by your host, at which point they will take you shopping in their neighbourhood before going to their home to cook and eat.
On arrival, if you want to help out chopping up some of the produce or you are particularly interested in the recipe behind this local meal, we invite you to participate as much or as little as you like. David will be happy to show you the ropes! Just follow his lead.
When the food is ready you will all sit down together and share the meal prepared, enjoy the conversation, perhaps look at each other’s photographs and maybe take some more together.
This experience is real. Our hosts come from all walks of life. Some are probably very similar to you and some are from poor or rural backgrounds. We encourage you to check out the photos here to make sure your expectations are correctly set about who you will be sharing a meal with and where they live. The beauty is that everyone involved in our Home Cooked Series is a wonderful person who wants to meet travellers and share this experience with them.

Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours - Red Light Walking tour
Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours: Take a walk on the wild side on this tour hour guided walking tour through Amsterdam’s infamous Red Light District. Your informative local guide will provide you with the lowdown on this most fascinating of districts where seamen on shore leave and local worthies once roamed these streets in search of encounters with ladies of the night. The area, although once run down and decidedly rough around the edges is now perfectly safe, and this tour makes for an illuminating, enlightening experience.
The tour starts with a visit to the Prostitutes’ Collective Information Centre. Here a former prostitute will explain how the system works as you enjoy a drink. Any questions you have will be most welcome.
The Red Light District, or Wallen as it is known to locals, is situated to the south of the Central Station and the east of the Damrak in one of the oldest parts of the city. In the company of an experienced local guide we’ll stroll down dark alleys, past ancient monuments and dingy mean streets, including the Zeedijk, once considered to be the most dangerous street in Amsterdam.
You’ll be able to see the prostitutes displaying their charms in illuminated windows in a disarmingly domestic setting, often knitting or adjusting their make-up. Although once decidedly edgy, the area is now completely safe. Marauding gangs of sailors are now a thing of the past, thanks to the disappearance of the harbour and the area is now packed with lively Dutch pubs and restaurants instead of the dodgy dives of yesteryear.
Your safety is guaranteed during this excursion, as you will be accompanied at all times by a reliable and trustworthy local guide.

Amsterdam and vicinity Excursions & Tours: Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and discover the enchanting Waterland District of Amsterdam by bike. Situated a mere 15 minutes north of the city, the Waterland District is a vast area of countryside that was reclaimed from the sea, originally lying some five meters below sea level. Today we can appreciate how the flat polder landscape has been transformed into a network of pretty Dutch villages surrounded by bubbling brooks, streams, waterways and dykes against a backdrop of perfect green meadows, and the famous windmills synonymous with the region.
As you follow the network of scenic cycle paths, your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about how life was in the centuries old villages where life still goes on today in a most traditional way. He will give you a great insight into days gone by and you will learn all about the folklore surrounding the villages and townsfolk and their constant struggle against the water.
Your journey through this region is most enjoyable due to the high comfort levels of the modern bikes, so you can relax and enjoy the sounds of nature as you cycle through the network of 10 small towns and villages with their traditional wooden houses and lifestyle that seems untouched by time.
