Amsterdam Student Tour

In consultation with many school classes and student groups we created our interesting, divers and popular Amsterdam Student Tour. During this excursion we combine history and present day with themes that are of interest to young people. We offer the excursion with a discount on our regular excursion prices. If you like you can add a regular canal cruise, also against a reduction rate.

Amsterdam Student Tour

Our school class tours offer students an extensive introduction to Amsterdam! The walking tour takes about 1,5 hours. Included will be parts of the old medieval heart of the city, a visit to the civil-guard gallery of the Amsterdam Museum and a famous medieval inner courtyard.

Of course you will hear everything about typical Amsterdam phenomena such as house boats and the small boats in the canals, hundreds of thousands of bikes ;-), historic houses, sinking houses, water management, drugs policy, Amsterdam’s founding history etc.

For example did you know that:

  • - Amsterdam is built on swampy soil
  • - New York originally was called New Amsterdam
  • - the first stock market of the world was founded in Amsterdam
  • - Amsterdam a melting pot is with almost 180 different nationalities living together

A great day!
We had a really good time! You made it a great day. Roel knew how to strike the exact right note and his distinct interest in and knowledge of (the history of) Amsterdam are a relief compared with the average city guide. T. van Zwet
