Sample Herrings the Amsterdam Way
The Jordaan is one of Amsterdam’s most popular and fascinating neighborhoods that goes back to the 1600s. Once a working-class district, today it’s filled with great cafés, restaurants and shops, but it’s also filled with history.
These Amsterdam food tours delve into the history of the area as well as the food and drink. Rather than just take visitors into various places to sample food, the guides interweave tales about the city’s fascinating past. For example, even the starting point for the tour used to be a secret hiding place for Catholics when they were persecuted in Amsterdam, and there’s a passageway to it under one of the Jordaan’s canals.
Tours also pass some of the city’s most popular visitor places that you’ll want to go back to, including the Anne Frank House and the Jordaan’s many old churches.
