Private and Small Group Guided Tours

This welcoming and laid-back city is famous for Dutch masterpieces, tilting gabled architecture, UNESCO world canals, and more.
Amsterdam's canals and narrow houses offer echoes of its Golden Age in the 17th century, when explorers, investors, and traders led the city into a tremendous boom, and Dutch Old Masters painted the artworks that have captivated generations since. In more recent years, artists, immigrants, and social progressives have transformed Amsterdam into a forward-thinking and artistic metropolis. Immerse yourself in the glory of Amsterdam with Context's private and small group walking tours.

We were able to arrange this private tour very quickly, which was fantastic. And, we learned interesting things about Amsterdam from Alette that have given us new appreciation for the city she calls home and that we all enjoy visiting. In our remaining time there, we noticed how much we appreciate how the city’s history has made it what is has become and what it stands for. Now more things about the city make sense and our deeper sense of wonder makes us want to come back and enjoy more exploring and wandering.
Belinda was really knowledgeable and we learned a lot during the experience. She converted me into a Van Gogh fan.
Alette was a great guide. Her passion for the art of the Golden Age was very evident and her insights gave us a perspective that we would never get on our own or from a multimedia guide, or large group.
