This is my third food tour using WithLocals, and Marten did not disappoint. In fact, I've decided that with every new city I visit, I will have to book a tour!
Marten's love of his country and his city were evident during this three-hour tour. He helped us understand how Amsterdam has been influenced by a melting pot of cultures and cuisines, and he shared tidbits about the country's social systems, the way it embraces multiculturalism, and strives to support families and the environment.
Along the way, I fell in love with this vibrant, cosmopolitan city. We tried some tasty treats, including locally produced cheeses, herring from a long-time fish vendor, stroopwafels made as we watched, and Suranamese food at family-owned restaurant. We strolled through the Pijp district, the Albert Cuyp market, and local parks.
Food was part of the tour, but Marten made it so much more than just a food tour. I would highly recommend this experience.
(Note: This was for a trip I took in May 2019, but I was recently reminded of the wonderful experience and decided to post here.)
