Amsterdam_photo-city1

 Bicycles and Bridges, Past and Politics, Rebels and Religion: Amsterdam is a surprising blend of past and present. That’s what makes Amsterdam so great!

Let historian Dio de Hoog show you Amsterdam’s grand history and explain to you which historical secrets are hiding in plain sight today. We’ll take you into the historical city center and show you the oldest streets of Amsterdam, what secrets the canals hold and explain why the picturesque patrician houses with their beautiful gables look the way they do. Delve into the Dutch colonial history with a visit to the stately and unique 19th century cigar palace ‘Hajenius’. Come and discover what is kept in the Treasure-room, down deep in the vaults of the former Dutch Trading Company. And yes, there’s a lot more on this 2 hour tour!
