What you can expect

Want to find out why Amsterdam is Snoop Dogg's favorite city?

Start your tour by entering the open air museum and look out over the 17th-century canals. The first thing you will instantly notice when you take a deep breath is the delightful smell of burned cannabis.

You will discover the fascinating history of “getting high” in the “lowlands”. As a history guide, I can tell you the story of the famous Dutch tolerance towards weed, hash, designer drugs and the magic mushroom.

As a local, I can tell you all about the Dutch cannabis culture, what it’s like to grow plants in your mom’s garden and bake a cannabis cake with your dad.

We'll even visit a real cannabis garden and I'll show you how plants are grown the local Amsterdam style.

To top it off, I'll show you where the locals go and I'll take you to my favorite coffee shop. It's even the biggest and oldest ones in town! Learn how to avoid being scammed and smoke in a responsible way. We will walk down the most beautiful part of old Amsterdam, the red light district, Chinatown and the new market.

Practical info:
The tour will be 1,5 up to 2 hours. We don't expect you to consume cannabis during the tour, this tour is also interesting and entertaining being fully sober. You are guided by a professional guide who knows all about Amsterdam’s history and culture.

Customize?
I am able to customize this tour a 100% to your wishes: More history? More culture? Prefer a different route? Bachelor party? Prefer alcohol instead of coffee? Want a different starting point? Let me know and we will work out a great plan for your needs.

It’s also possible to expand your tour with some Dutch history highlights! I have been working as a history guide for years and I can tell you all the amazing stories this open air museum called Amsterdam has to offer.

Otto Nooitgedacht has been a guide for years and loves telling crazy stories about the dutch and his hometown Amsterdam. Otto is perhaps the most Dutch Dutchman where all the stereotypes are based on! He is tall, has Dutch blonde hair and blue eyes, he owns multiple pairs of wooden shoes and a total of five bikes. Otto grew up on a Dutch “Terp”, a small hill which turned into an Island once a year! He went to the big city of Amsterdam to study and now knows Amsterdam as well as his old tiny island. Now when he is not reading books about Amsterdam’s history, or busy researching the human mind in his studies of psychology, he is providing people with his Amsterdam walking tours and hopefully making them laugh about his retarded jokes."
