Description

The guides will be waiting for you at Dam Square, in front of Madame Tussauds (Wax Museum), one of the most spectacular and popular places in the city, which you will have the opportunity to get to know in detail. In the center of Dam Square, towering above the other buildings, stands the spectacular Royal Palace of Amsterdam, the venue for the country's most solemn events, such as awards ceremonies and official receptions. Our tour then moves on to the National Monument. The Netherlands was one of the territories that suffered most from the consequences of the Second World War. This work of art commemorates and serves as a tribute to all those who lost their lives during the war. You will learn everything you need to know about this monument from the expert local guides who will accompany you at the time. This tour through the streets of Amsterdam will take you to the most important church in the Netherlands. This is the New Church or Nieuwe Kerk. A spectacular place of worship that will captivate you as soon as you see its 15th-century façade, which stands out from the rest of the buildings and premises around it. It is here where the Kings are married and crowned, that's why its importance. This impressive guided tour of Amsterdam aims to show you everything, and the next stop is one of the most unknown corners of the city, the Beguinary, built with the idea of being occupied by women who were lonely due to the absence of their relatives and where they carried out charity work. From there we will go directly to the Singel Canal, where, among other things, you can be amazed at the Amsterdam Flower Market. A spectacular place with one of the most beautiful postcards of the city. Before we finish our guided tour of the capital of the Netherlands, it's time to delve back into history, and more specifically into the Second World War. We will visit the Jewish Quarter, very important for the city and relevant to understand one of the darkest periods of the old continent. Anne Frank's family lived there in hiding, so you can visit the Anne Frank House, where she had to protect herself from the Nazis. Continuing with history, several centuries before the outbreak of the Second World War, the city was surrounded by walls to protect it from its enemies. Therefore, a key point to stop at on our tour is the so-called St. Anthony's Gate, the point through which Amsterdam was entered in the past. Our visit will end in the surroundings of the Central Station, a spectacular building that has been around for more than a century and is nowadays the main entrance to the capital of the Netherlands. It must be said that these are just some of the places you will enjoy, as during the visit you will also discover magical and sensational places that will make you fall in love with Amsterdam forever, and you will also be able to taste some of the most typical cheeses of the country. What are you waiting for, book now, we are waiting for you!
