The best walking tour – bar none.
This walking tour is not about the sights of Amsterdam. This is all about the INSIGHTS about Amsterdam. Very educational – but our knowledgeable guide made it very interesting. Fun too. The perfect way to know – and understand Amsterdam better in 3 hours.

“Fabulous Introduction to Amsterdam”

July 2017

(…) The tour is about two and a half hours long, which seems like a long time to walk around, but it was absolutely incredible and flew by. I learned so much on this tour and it really helped enrich the rest of my days in the city. Highly recommend to take on your first day!

Pure Passion

February 2017

A two and a half hour well spent. When a venture is made out of passion, comes the rest of greatness. There are amazing stories, entertainments, and memorabilia. For a free walking tour, it provides the same quality of those even paid. Worth the try. Give it a shot!

“I went to several tours – FreeDam tour is the best.”

August 2017

I have lived in Amsterdam since several months and I enjoy going into free walking tours organized by different companies in Amsterdam. My market research yields to the result that this walking tour is the best – amazing guides, very informative, 3 hours full of fun, no unnecessary stopovers at some restaurants, no unnecessarily long promotion of other tours a company might have. I will definitely bring my guests again.
