4 Hours Culture tour itinerary for Amsterdam: Tread On The Streets For Dutch Treats
Discover the old town, coupled with a few stops to taste Dutch Jenever (transparent liquor, similar to vodka) or do some cheese tasting, or slide a herring down your throats.
Dutch Treats Tasting Tour!
Tag along with your Amsterdam tour guide and proceed for your tour.
Whenever we enjoy (responsibly) an ice-cold Heineken we might order "Een Portie Bitterballen" or a Kaasschaaltje to go with it.
Or if you feel a bit hungry stop at the nearest snack bar for "Een Patatje Met", or eat from the wall: just insert a euro in a display of slots and pick your favourite "Tussendoortje", an in-between meals snacks, like a Kroket or a Frikadel. Typically, low-quality meat, but fat and greasy, therefore tasty.
Or keep an eye out for a herring vendor in a caravan to try some raw fish, preferably with onions and pickle. Recent immigrants brought along shoarma and kebab, which also tastes great after you had a couple of drinks.
Tougher characters will probably quench their thirst by drinking a few "Kopstootjes" (butt of the head).
For families, there is an alternative: pancakes and poffertjes. Every Dutch child loves them; I'm sure yours will too!
This tour takes a bit more time than a regular city walk, of course, 3 hours is about the minimum.
Food and drinks
A word from your tour guide:
Although I wouldn't recommend Dutch cuisine to anyone, except my worst enemy maybe, we compensate this by having a large array of snacks and nibbly-bits.
