The Hidden City

'The Hidden City' will take you on a more than 2 hour during trip walking and sailing through some of the oldest parts of Amsterdam. A beautiful route along small canals with marvellous views along the way! Including an authentic Amsterdam liqueur.

The Hidden City


The first hour we walk through the medieval heart of Amsterdam. We'll not only pass the oldest profession, but also the oldest church, streets and houses of Amsterdam. Right in the middle of the (busy) Red light District, behind the facades and along the old streets and dikes, many histories are hidden and there are some remarkable stories to tell.

During the second part of our Hidden City program we sail for an hour through quiet, less known and narrow canals and explore just a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, quiet and picturesque Amsterdam neighborhoods.
Aboard an exclusive historic salon boat you'll be welcomed with an authentic 17th-century recipe based liqueur such as Heaven on Earth, Hansje in the basement, Tears of the bride or Rose without thorns.

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
