How did Amsterdam become the Amsterdam we know today? Several neighbourhoods tell their own version of the story. The Medieval origins around the Dam in the Amstel reveals the progressive, liberal, but moreover pragmatic ‘DNA’ of Amsterdam. The revolutionary design of the Canal Ring is the showcase of Dutch 17th century urban planning and architecture. The Jordaan neighbourhood has its very own ‘working class to gentrification’ story to tell.
What would Historical Amsterdam Tours be without a good number of unique historical tours in Amsterdam? We offer a first-rate insight into the financial innovations that began in Amsterdam. Additionally the tragic history of World War II and the colourful chapter of the 1960s have made Amsterdam what it is today.
The relatively small city of Amsterdam has an extraordinairy quality of art to offer. Have yourself a crash course on Dutch Art with you own private art historian in the Rijksmuseum.
We also can make the best of your stay with a combination of tours, like a boat cruise on the canals, a museum visit and a city walk. Flexibility is key!
