La visita ha sido completa: Ignacio es una persona que contagia entusiasmo y transmite su pasión por esta ciudad. Nos ha explicado contexto histórico y artístico de un modo informal, nos ha ofrecido recomendaciones y, además, crea un buen ambiente en el grupo estupendo. Ha sido un placer conocer el Barrio Rojo de su mano

Travelled in family - Dec 2022
On the day of our tour we didn’t have nice weather so the rest of the families that were supposed to attend, bailed… Not Janet though, she was our personal ray of sunshine until the real ones made their appearance! Her Amsterdam tour was a mix of books, literacy, art, architecture, delicious food and Amsterdam history. All the family enjoyed our morning with her and now we have lots of recommendations for the rest of our days in Amsterdam. She also managed incredible well both of our sons (7 and 11 years old). We had a wonderful experience and we’d recommend her to everybody willing to have a great and informative tour!

Free Tour Historical Center: DAM, Jewish Quarter and Flower Market

Amsterdam is a city with a long and rich history. It is also known as the "Venice of the North" and it is no wonder that this city attracts millions of tourists every year.

It is estimated that up to 50 million tourists visit Amsterdam each year, 3.5 million of them international visitors. The city's popularity among tourists is due to the Dutch capital's rich artistic heritage, picturesque canals and historic buildings dating back to the 17th century, when Amsterdam was at its richest.

Tourists and locals alike will find all kinds of attractions to explore: beautiful canals, historic buildings, bridges and even a network of cycle paths that connects most of the city.

Holland is famous for its tulips, cheese, wooden shoes and much more. Amsterdam has several museums where visitors can learn more about these Dutch traditions (such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House Museum or the Hermitage).


Tourists can also visit one of Amsterdam's many restaurants or simply enjoy some time in one of the many cafés. 

But there is also the possibility to discover and enjoy a historical version of the city, for example the Amsterdam of the Second World War. For this, there is nothing better than the specialised and professional guides of the Free Tours that we offer you here at GuruWalk.


In 1940, Amsterdam was invaded by the Nazis. A year later, the Dutch government abandoned the city and German forces occupied it. The Germans had a plan to raze most of Amsterdam and rebuild it as a German city. However, they could not level the 17th century canal ring because it was on the UNESCO World Heritage List, so they simply blocked access to most of the city.

Therefore, a lot of damage was avoided and people managed to maintain a normal life during much of the Second World War under German occupation.

What were the key points of that historical period in the city, where were the blockades of the Nazi army's book passage for the citizens? 

All these aspects and many other stories and curiosities are what you will discover thanks to our Free Tours of Amsterdam.
