Lovely variety of food experiences, Dutch and international. The Surinamese dishes were exceptional. Finished with some traditional Dutch beer and apple cake, what more could you want? Our guide was friendly and informative. Good history knowledge.

Walk the street market on your own. Guided not needed

, Jun 2022
So this was not something we would do again. We could have 100 percent walked the outdoor market and done this on our own. We only did 1 hour and 50 min it says 3 hours and we definitely needed drinks with the tour. So bring a water. We had too many sweet items as well but we could have just done on our own.

Great way to spend an afternoon
Paul_A
, Apr 2022
The tasting tour was a lot of fun and something out of the ordinary. We went in the afternoon after a museum visit and it was a great change of pace Arun was a great guide and we had a leisurely stroll down the Albert Cuyp market with several stops focused on Dutch food (including one Suriname focused stop). It’s a lot of food so make sure you go hungry. Our tastings included cheese, herring and battered fried cod (Kibbeling), Dutch stroopwafels (thin waffles with layer of caramel), bitteballen (any visit to amsterdam will involve these round croquettes at some point) a couple of Suriname dishes (chicken kabobs. A curry and some fried plantain) and finished off with Dutch apple pie ( and a cold local beer) you will not leave hungry!

Arun is the master of taste!
Howard_F
, Apr 2022
Arun gave us a nice overview of various aspects of Dutch cuisine. Bitterballs, herring, apple pie and delicious Suriname food, everything we ate was very tasty. It was great to watch Arun interact with the different people on the tour. These were his friends and it was a pleasure to meet them. Arun is widely read. At the end of our tour he took us to the American Book Store where he introduced us to a number of significant Dutch writers, whose works are available in English. Without reservation, I would recommend this tour to anyone. No one wants to be a tourist and in a city full of them like Amsterdam, Arun made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

Good buy pricey
Yvettep2018
, Oct 2021
I always love tasting foods from different countries. This was no different. However, I do feel this tour was a bit pricey for the amount of tastings/food we got. We only had 6 stops. At three of the six stops we did try two different types of the same food. So that's six tastings. Then at the coffee shop the gave us a mini stroopwafel because the place we were going to stop at was closed. The cheese stop was amazing as there was a huge variety of cheeses to taste. While I really enjoyed the tastes we had, I would have liked a bigger variety and I'm not so sure I would pay $113 again.

A Delightful Taste of Amsterdam!
jws1040
, Sep 2021
Walking through Amsterdam's markets, specialty food shops & stalls sampling many delicious local food items with the utterly delightful, and thoroughly knowledgeable Crista as our guide was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon! Christa's knowledge of the history and background of so much we viewed passing by lovingly maintained older buildings and sites made this so much more than just a food tour! Being. physically limited and requiring the use of a cane when walking, Crista was extremely considerate of my situation and kept the pace at a level I felt comfortable with, but still making sure we got to experience everything!! We do food tours whenever we travel to new cities worldwide and this one was right up there with the best of them!

We enjoyed our experience. However, instead of only being in the farmer's market street area, I wish we had visited actual shops and stores. Marten was very knowledgeable but spent quite a lot of time talking about politics and somewhat bashing other countries...including ours.

Fabulous private tour with a lovely woman. Excellent communication. We were taken throughout the city and were able to sample a number of wonderful food specialities of Amsterdam, including the more popular Stroopwafflen to the more exotic fried plantains in an interesting curry sauce and everything in between! We topped it off with a sampling of Amsterdam beers. What fun! Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon. You won't be disappointed!

Dutch Treats

A really, really great tour with so many interesting Amsterdam food items to try out. Our guide Louke was super friendly, and also so informative not only about the cuisine, but about the places we visited and the areas we passed through as well. She was great at making sure we got our food samples quickly, even at the wonderful and quite busy city marketplace which was one of our food stops. (A personal favourite.) Thanks so much!
