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!

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!
