Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 976 )
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.

A fantastic tour by Roser. It's a joy to have a docent who knows so much about the art as well as its history, significance and impact. This was a perfectly paced, entertaining and hugely informative tour. A terrific experience.
An outstanding tour by Lora. I had already been told she was the Rolls-Royce of Rijksmuseum docents by a colleague and she surpassed the highest expectations. Encyclopedic, witty and perfectly organized tour which covered art, history, architecture and so much more. A superb tour.
Excellent tour by Giorgio. He masterfully placed in context the way Amsterdam's neighbourhoods, architecture and history interconnect. His wonderful recognition of the sequence of events in the Dutch Golden Age and its relation to events today was just one of so many highlights of this walk. This was a terrific tour!
