About the Tour

Discover the fascinating history of the most liberal city in the world with FreeDam Tours – the best-rated walking tour in Amsterdam! Together with your super-local guide, you will discover how freedom and tolerance shaped the city and its people, throughout the ages and understand how these values continue to influence it today. We combine beautiful sightseeing with exciting storytelling and cover everything you need to know about Amsterdam in one tour: history, modern life, culture, art, fun facts and personal stories for a unique insider’s perspective on life in Amsterdam. Be prepared to challenge all your pre-conceived ideas about this city because after this tour you will never look and think of Amsterdam the same way. “From the Red Light District to the evolution of Amsterdam as the global centre of world trade in the 17th century, its transition from a republic to a monarchy, the tragedy of the Nazi occupation and its enlightened and effective attitude to drug control, your guide will stitch these diverse items together with humorous personal anecdotes and insightful commentary on the underlying social and cultural mores of the Dutch people”. + Small Groups of Maximum 15 people for a truly high-quality experience and access to areas that are off-limits to other walking tours. + Supported by pictures painting and maps that bring history to life. + Super Local Guides: all our guides are life-long locals with very deep roots in this city, country and culture so they can answer any question you may have. + Free Snack & Souvenir: on the tour, you will be treated to a typical Dutch snack and you will also receive a nice souvenir in the end.

We had so much fun and laughs with the tour! It was a pleasure to learn the highlights from the Nederlands culture and Amsterdam city with the tour guide Sergio. Don’t expect a regular tour with architectonical details and boring historical of history. He kept us all the time alive and entertained. Highly recommend!!!

We really enjoyed the tour through Amsterdam with Nick! He is such a charismatic and funny storyteller!! He showed us the mandatory touristic attractions but also smaller insider places. In the end he gave us some nice recommendations and we left with a great smile! Thank you so much for the tour, Nick! :)
