Discover the origins of Amsterdam on a 2-hour walking tour with a guide. Learn where the name Amsterdam came from, why the Dutch are so good at managing water, and more. Old markets, wooden houses, funny corners, curious stories, old streets, windows with red lights, strange smells, crowded squares, monumental buildings, an oasis in the middle of the city, bourgeois orphans, money makers, and more are all on the itinerary.
