We have lived in Amsterdam for many years and in addition to being seasoned, local guides we are also chefs, artists or teachers in this city that we love so deeply and know so well.

It is our strong belief that you will not truly get to know and understand Amsterdam and its people, until you walk its streets with someone who eats, lives, loves and breathes the city.

Each one of us has our own specific stories that we are longing to share with you. So don’t expect a tour with a standard script that leads you along the tourist hotspots, but instead an interactive day out along the spots we enjoy frequenting ourselves.

Where you'll be

The Jordaan is possibly the most famous neighbourhood in the Netherlands. Akin to the reputation enjoyed by London’s Cockneys, this once working-class bastion was renowned for tight community bonds, radical politics and a love for drink and over-the-top sing-a-longs. Gentrification of decades past has attracted more galleries, restaurants, specialty shops and upwardly-mobile residents to its scenic streets.

Rudolph was amazing and the culinary tour far exceeded our expectations. Each part of it was unique and personalized with Rudolph’s experienced touches. He was knowledgeable about all of the food and wine establishments we visited as well as the history of Amsterdam. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rudolf is such an energetic and cool person to be around. He makes sure that everyone is happy and will go out of his way to put that smile on your face. During our tour he was willing to stay past the scheduled end time to chat with us. He went above and beyond and I can surely say that I will Come back to Amsterdam just to eat with him once more!

Rudolph war einfach eine klasse Persönlichkeit und hat seine Erfahrungen mit einspielen lassen. Im Zusammenspiel mit seinen Geschichtskenntnissen und seinem allgemeinen Wissen rundete er die Tour zu einem klasse Nachmittag ab. Das Essen war gut und breit gefächert aufgestellt. Wenn man irgendetwas nicht mochte, versuchte er immer eine Alternative zu finden. Daumen hoch 👍

The food tour of all food tours! We had a unique group, where we all had interesting and coincidental connects to our hometowns! It was made even better by Rudolph and his incredible sense of humor, knowledge of Amsterdam and the food scene there. To top it off, everything we tried was delicious! There was something for everyone - a cheese tasting, apple pie, Surinamese food, fresh herring (a Dutch delicacy), bitterballen, Dutch gin... the list goes on! It was not only a great value, but a fabulous way to see the Jordaan neighborhood, learn about the historic canals, and try authentic Dutch cuisine. Rudolph was also very accommodating of our group, including my dietary preferences as a vegetarian.
