Overview
Amsterdam's liberal culture is both alluring and puzzling to many visitors, so get the inside scoop with this popular, budget-friendly walking tour that takes you beyond the tourist sites to reveal the soul of the Dutch capital. Hear local insight into issues like marijuana, marriage equality, and houseboat living as you stroll along canals and past attractions unlikely to be in your guidebook. A small group size makes it feel more like a walk with new friends than a formal group tour where you might get lost in the crowd.

    Dam Square
    Stop: 2 hours
    Meet your guide at The National Monument on Dam Square, from where you'll start your visit. Delve into the alternative scene that makes Amsterdam a must-visit destination for visitors interested in subcultures. Explore such facets of Amsterdam society as the post-WWII housing crisis that led to the phenomenon of living in boats or in squats, and the counterculture movements that developed into today’s unmatched cityscape of unique coffee shops and street art. This is the real Amsterdam - the side of the city that locals love, and that visitors come to experience. This tour is a must for anyone really wanting to really experience this unique city!

My girlfriend and I did a walking tour of Amsterdam and were very impressed. Our tour guide was Tim who was very down to earth; he was very informative, knowledgeable and passionate about the city. He took us too many parts of the city and whether he had a script or not is

I enjoyed my walking tour at 10:00 am from Dam Square on February 21,2020 but halfway thru the tour our guide made a couple of not so nice references to my President in America. People in Europe and around the world only get half the news and watching TV in Europe they aren’t

We booked a 3pm English tour but they only had Spanish guides. Turned us away. Apparently we should have checked another website than the one where we booked. Such a waste of time!

Response from SNE_Violeta, Guest Relations Manager at Alternative Amsterdam 2-Hour Walking Tour With MoCo Museum Admission
Responded Mar 5, 2020
Hello elenamD8768YV, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for choosing us in Amsterdam. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. Allow me to apologize on behalf of the company that we were not able to offer you the tour you booked and paid for. This was due to a scheduling error on our part which should clearly never have happened, and I understand that this must have been incredibly upsetting for you and your group, and may well have caused further disruption to your itinerary. We truly hope that we can make it up to you in the future in Amsterdam or in any of our cities, and that we may show you this was an exception to a usually excellent level of service. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team

Berbera was an excellent tour guide. Some of the places shown were interesting however it is something that can be easily done yourself. The initial ticket advised someone would be standing with a red umbrella at the meeting point. On the day it was freezing cold and pouring
