  • 2 hours

Amsterdam is famous for its coffee shops and liberal laws. Embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the city and learn all about its alternative scene. 

Alternative Amsterdam Tour

Head to the National Monument on Dam Square, in the city centre, from where you will begin your tour by foot.

You will also admire the city’s most stunning street art as you stroll through its historic centre and finally, learn about the history of its coffee shops.
