What you'll do

On our Secret Beer Tours: Amsterdam, we visit two local breweries where you'll do several tastings. We'll also visit 2 local bars, one of which still has the beautiful, authentic, copper taps and a choice of 52 local Dutch beers. Another of our stops is known for hiring the homeless, providing training so they can become professional brewers.

You'll experience the evolution of our beer culture here, with one of our stops operating since 1895. The beer menu changes daily here, meaning each of our tours is a unique experience. Discover the fascinating history behind these establishments while sipping on delicious beers from past and present.

Due to the nature of creating a well balanced and thoughtful gastronomy experience, many of our tours are unable to accommodate certain dietary restrictions. Please contact us prior to booking your tour to see if we are able to accommodate your dietary needs.

  • On our tour, you'll learn how Amsterdam's canal system was created, and its function within our city.
  • Our first stop will be an Amsterdam bar which has 52 taps exclusively pouring Dutch beer, but don't worry, we'll help you pick some of the best options!
  • You'll learn about our beer history as we walk from Herengracht into the oldest part of the city.
  • Our Secret Sip will be up next, in a bar with a beer menu that changes daily, built in 1895.
  • We'll walk through Amsterdam's centre, passing the historical Trading House and Dam Square.
  • We'll then Amsterdam's first microbrewery for a tasting of four delicious beers.
  • After walking through one of our oldest streets in the city, our little Chinatown, we'll finish in another microbrewery to sample three more beers.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CRAFT BEER TOUR?

The craft beer will visit 3/4 venues and include on average around 11 samples of beer. Each sample is the equivalent of a small glass of beer. The total amount that this would accumulate to throughout the tour would be approximately 3 pints. We highly recommend having a substantial meal before the tour as no food is included. There will be an opportunity to eat at the end of the tour and our guide will happily recommend a few options. During the tour you will have the opportunity to purchase salty snacks from the venues.

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
