See Amsterdam like a local!

Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, is a major tourist destination. The picturesque canals, beautiful tulips and thousands of bikes parked everywhere all paint a picture of typical Dutch living. One of the many fun things to do in Amsterdam is to go on a cruise of the canals; it'll give you a beautiful view of the city from a unique perspective.

If you're hungry, be sure to try local specialties like herring, biterballen and fries with mayonnaise. Dutch home cooking is a little bit different from what's served in restaurants, and the best way to taste the local cuisine is to book a lunch or dinner with one of our lovely Amsterdam hosts!
