Amsterdam Walking Tour

Quick Details

  • Start point:  At 10h30 on the sidewalk outside the Barbizon Palace Hotel
  • End point: Near the Anne Frank House

The first 2 tickets are sold as a pair, thereafter it is possible to buy individual tickets. The reason for this is that we don’t run the tours with just 1 person booked in.

Please also note: From 1 January 2020 the Amsterdam City Council is levying a tourist tax of €1.50 per person on city tours that the tour guide has to collect and pay. Please can you bring this in cash and pay it to the guide.
