Horrible Experience.
Latoya_S, May 2023
I’ll start by saying our tour began late. I received a call 30 min the tour began, asking if we’d like to select a later time. After I explained to Jess we were already at the meeting point, she said she would be there soon. When Jess arrived, she was friendly but looked extremely disheveled. Every time Jess ordered us a new food to try, she personally ate 60-80% of it. I am not use to a tour guide putting their hands in food I’m sharing with my partner. We already paid for the tour, why are you eating the food and going back for seconds & thirds? This is the 4th food tour I’ve been on. The bar was set high with the other three. Ultimately I wasn’t happy with this tour or the guide at all.

Olga our tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our tastes. She was on time and a lot of fun.
Knowledgeable and flexible
Yone_D, Dec 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam and the role food plays in that history. We were introduced to a great variety of foods from local market vendors to restaurants. Our guide was able to accommodate our children's likes and dislikes.
Great way to enjoy Amsterdam!

Relaxing tour
Melinda_E, July 2022
We enjoyed a 3 hour market area tour with Krista. Knowing that some vendors would not be present on the day of our tour, she offered to take us to another area of the city, but we’re glad we stayed at the market. We moved at a relaxed pace and enjoyed learning more about the local food & life in Amsterdam. We were given flexibility in how to spend the portion of the tour fee allocated for food costs, but we primarily followed the guide’s recommendations. We also received many tips on hidden-gems of Amsterdam…I suggest you take this tour early in your trip so you have adequate time to check out some of the recommendations.

john_t, July 2022
Our guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable with the local foods. Martin was very interesting to talk to about the history and political scene of Amsterdam. We could have spent hours eating with him and talking to him. Local foods were very good.
Great introduction to various Dutch specialities
Sarah_R, June 2022
Lovely variety of food experiences, Dutch and international. The Surinamese dishes were exceptional. Finished with some traditional Dutch beer and apple cake, what more could you want? Our guide was friendly and informative. Good history knowledge.
Excellent and tasty tour
ryanmarya, June 2022
Our guide, Mayra, was a delight and oh so knowledgeable. I’ve been to Amsterdam a number of times and have never tasted it quite like this! We’d recommend this to everyone.
Walk the street market on your own. Guided not needed
qwxvxwcfy7, June 2022
So this was not something we would do again. We could have 100 percent walked the outdoor market and done this on our own. We only did 1 hour and 50 min it says 3 hours and we definitely needed drinks with the tour. So bring a water. We had too many sweet items as well but we could have just done on our own.

Great way to spend an afternoon
Paul_A, Apr 2022
The tasting tour was a lot of fun and something out of the ordinary. We went in the afternoon after a museum visit and it was a great change of pace Arun was a great guide and we had a leisurely stroll down the Albert Cuyp market with several stops focused on Dutch food (including one Suriname focused stop). It’s a lot of food so make sure you go hungry. Our tastings included cheese, herring and battered fried cod (Kibbeling), Dutch stroopwafels (thin waffles with layer of caramel), bitteballen (any visit to amsterdam will involve these round croquettes at some point) a couple of Suriname dishes (chicken kabobs. A curry and some fried plantain) and finished off with Dutch apple pie ( and a cold local beer) you will not leave hungry!

Kayleigh_P, Apr 2022
Our tour guide Mayra was amazing! She was nice, outgoing, informative, fun, etc. She made the experience fun and relaxing. The food was also amazing and better than any of the other Dutch dishes I tried on my trip.
Michael_S, Apr 2022
Christa was a great guide and customized the tour based on what we wanted to do. She also sent us a lot of great recommendations to use during the rest of our time in Amsterdam.
Arun is the master of taste!
Howard_F, Apr 2022
Arun gave us a nice overview of various aspects of Dutch cuisine. Bitterballs, herring, apple pie and delicious Suriname food, everything we ate was very tasty. It was great to watch Arun interact with the different people on the tour. These were his friends and it was a pleasure to meet them. Arun is widely read. At the end of our tour he took us to the American Book Store where he introduced us to a number of significant Dutch writers, whose works are available in English. Without reservation, I would recommend this tour to anyone. No one wants to be a tourist and in a city full of them like Amsterdam, Arun made us feel very welcome. Thank you.
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!
jws1040, Sept 2021
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!
Dutch Cheese Treats

We liked visiting the cheese stall and the variety that was offered.. We liked the appetizers and atmosphere of the restaurant.

Terry_C, Aug 2021
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.
Great food experience
Matt_S, Mar 2020
Arum, was a great guide...lots of local knowledge about the town, history and culture...and obviously knew all the great local food spots...felt like a “local” during the tour!
