Firstly, you'll admire New Market square; a typical Dutch market since the 17th Century, where farmers would come to sell their produce. At the market square, you’ll also see The Waag, the original gate of the medieval city wall, later converted into a weighing house. From Nieuwmarkt square, you’ll walk/roll past the Red Light District and China Town as your guide explains some fascinating facts about this famous part of Amsterdam. Enjoy beautiful views as you stroll along the picturesque Amsterdam canals, so special and breathtaking that they have been accredited as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Discover the Old Church and the tiny alleyways and old canal houses surrounding it. Continuing the tour, you'll see the old headquarters of the Dutch East Indies Company, considered to be the first multinational company and the company to issue stocks. It grew to become the largest trading and transport enterprise in the world! This wheelchair friendly guided tour continues to the Jewish Quarter, which you will partly visit with the guide. A historic neighborhood testifying to the horrors of the Second World War. Pass through the Oudemanhuispoort and old book market, before ending up at Begijnhof, which is one of the oldest inner courtyards in the city of Amsterdam. A group of historic buildings, mostly private dwellings, center on it. As the name suggests, it was originally a Béguinage.
