About the Tour

Worldly known for its enchanting houses along the canals, its colorful tulips and its ocean of bikes, Amsterdam also harbors macabre stories hidden in its dimmest corners. Along this nightly stroll through the oldest streets in medieval Amsterdam, we'll tell the story of the most famous ship that ever sailed the seas, the Flying Dutchman; we'll explore the haunted house of the beautiful Helena, whose soul wanders restless in the scene that bore witness to her crime; and we'll discover why "Wednesday is minced meat day" in the Netherlands. 

Discover with us, if you dare, the most disturbing stories concealed throughout the irregular floors and the crooked walls of this enchanted city. 

Even though the tour guide will not be in character, his/her story-telling ability will captivate your soul. 

Highlights: 
- Weeper's Tower 
- Spooksteeg: Ghost Alley 
- Nieuwmarkt: Executions and Theatrum Anatomicum 
- Spinhuis and Rasphuis: Former Penitentiary

Un 10 para Enrique. Contratamos el free tour sin saber nada de la empresa y nos encantó tanto el recorrido como el guía. Nos contó anecdotas muy interesantes. Un tour diferente con un guía diferente. Recomendado 100%
