    What to Expect
    The Netherlands’ beer industry started in the early 17th century and exploded into production about 300 years later, leading to its world-renowned reputation as a beer-brewing powerhouse. Quench your thirst for quality Dutch beer on this 3-hour evening Amsterdam beer tour, which includes sampling three beers as well as a typical bar snack.

    Meet your informative guide in central Amsterdam and as you stroll along the city's charming cobblestone streets, learn about the country’s brewing industry, shaped in part by American and German influences.

    Stop at a succession of different bars — frequented by locals — including an intriguing little place where Amsterdam 16th-century nuns once made their own brews. Your guide also leads you into the bold and racy Red Light District. Leave the crowds behind and visit a small brewery located in the heart of the neighborhood to sample an array of beers in an atmospheric tasting room.

    Finish up in a famous local beer hall that features more than 200 different varieties of beer! End your tour on a high note with a bitter ale, a pale lager or a triple malt. Your guide leaves you here, so you’re placed in the perfect spot to continue enjoying Amsterdam’s best beer right where you are!

    My girlfriend Erica and I had a small group tour with Dax recently and we had a great time! It ended up being just the three of us but that made it even better actually. We were able to just talk with Dax about Amsterdam and all kinds of things on a more personal level and learn

    Good to hear you both had such a good time with Dax. He is very approachable. Thank you for trying some herring out as well. It is always a challenge to get folks to try our particular Dutch treat. I will pass your praises onto Dax.

    I had a tour with Dax on 11 December. The group was very small indeed, it was just he and I! He took me to several bars that I would never have found myself, with an interesting additional stop at a Jenever "Proeflokaal". He interspersed the evening with historical and other

    Great to know you had a good time with Dax. He loves the beer tour. And his knowledge of the city is helpful. Also happy to read your love of Jenever and local distilled products as well. That is something people seem to enjoy as an added value and great you mentioned it in your review. I will pass your good news on to Dax.

    Husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Off the beaten path places (if your group is small like ours was), great drinks, nice mix of expertise and fun. Way better than a bar crawl.

    We scheduled the tour for our first day in Amsterdam which turned out to be a good move. Our tour guide Arthur was very knowledgeable and gave us a good overview of the city and it's history. He also brought us to some very good, "off the beaten path" bars for our tasting. The

    Hey Just saw this review! great! thanks a lot! I will inform Artur of his outstanding bar side manner. Nice of you to let people know what a good time we have arranged. Also glad you enjoyed our other "dutch" cuisine- Indonesian. K&T is a fun place to have a Rice Table. Helps to absorb some of the 6% beers you where indulging in.

    Thanks much for the Review and recommendation. Had a great time. Like the Hole In The Wall remark it's true we do try and keep it to the local places who understand our group is not like a "standard" tour group. Looking forward to your return.
