Entertaining and informative tour

This free walking tour is one of the most popular in the city. Passionate guides will walk you through the history of Amsterdam, from its start as a muddy village on the River Amstel, to becoming the most important trading city in Europe. You will go where other tours don't and hear stories you'd otherwise never hear, from the wild history of prostitution and drug decriminalisation, to the tragedy of Anne Frank's story and Nazi occupation, to the liberal and unique city of today. The tour is available in English or Spanish and departs from Dam Square, next to the National Monument.
