Great way to taste Amsterdam
"Mayra was great. She was friendly, knowledgeable and gave a great walking tour mostly through Albert Cuyp market. She had a plan but was flexible to adjust as needed. We tried some food that we never would have tried without a local guide that we are glad we experienced. She also covered some history of the area and provided some personal perspective. We would definitely recommend her as a guide. "JonAbout local MayraLeiden, October 2023
Tasty Samples with Education
"During the Tour, we not only were able to sample the unique foods of Amsterdam, but we were provided with an educational understanding of how Amersterdam developed as a country and how it operates in the world's Global economy. "JamesAbout local MartenLeiden, October 2023
Fantastic Food Tour and so much more!
"We very much enjoyed our 10 Tastings of Amsterdam tour with Marten. Marten was a great guide! Not only did he give us the an understanding of the food we were tasting, he also gave us so much knowledge and information about Dutch culture! He is very well versed in history, politics and culture. The three hour tour flew by as we discussed many topics between bites. Marten was very responsive to messages and accommodated our wish to end the tour near the Rijksmuesum. I would highly recommend Marten as your guide to Amsterdam. In addition to the food tour, I know he gives several other tours and I believe any of them would be an awesome experience!"DeniseAbout local MartenLeiden, September 2023
Like being a local with great company.
"Anastasia was all we expected and then some more; on time, professional and always looking after us. We learned, had fun and will be hiring her again when/if welcome back to Rotterdam. Hire her!"GonzaloAbout local AnastasiaLeiden, September 2023
Amazing Food Tour of Amsterdam!
"Our personal tour with Olga was awesome! She was so sweet and knowledgeable and made us feel super comfortable. She walked us around neighborhoods where locals hangout and took us to places that locals eat. everything was so good! Our favorite place was visiting the local food market in the neighborhood, it was super fun! We highly recommend Olga :)"JessicaAbout local OlgaLeiden, September 2023
Great tour with Marten!
"Marten was an awesome tour guide for our introduction to Amsterdam. He was informed and shared interesting information about the city, its history, and its food. It was clear how much Marten loved Amsterdam, and how well he knew the various vendors at the market who shared their food with us. Additionally, he pointed out several vendors who were artists and we were able to get some beautiful jewelry and artwork. I highly recommend withlocals and definitely recommend Marten as a guide!"DanielleAbout local MartenLeiden, September 2023
A Memorable Culinary Adventure
" I recently had the pleasure of going on a food tour tasting in Amsterdam, led by Mayra who is an extraordinary tour guide. From start to finish, the experience was absolutely delightful and left me with a newfound appreciation for the culinary wonders of this vibrant city. I cannot recommend our guide enough for her outstanding qualities of being engaging, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. Right from the moment we met, our guide's warm and welcoming nature made me feel right at home. Her genuine enthusiasm for sharing Amsterdam's culinary treasures was infectious, and it immediately set the tone for an unforgettable journey. Throughout the tour, she effortlessly created a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, making me feel comfortable and ensuring that no question went unanswered. What truly stood out about my guide was her exceptional knowledge of Amsterdam's food scene. She effortlessly shared fascinating anecdotes, historical tidbits, and insightful cultural context behind each dish we sampled. It was evident that she had done her research, as her explanations were not only informative but also delivered with great passion and authenticity. Her expertise truly enriched the experience and deepened our understanding of the city's culinary heritage. Moreover, my guide's engaging storytelling skills made the tour even more captivating. Her ability to weave together the stories of the local chefs, the origins of the recipes, and the evolution of Amsterdam's food culture made each stop feel like a mini-adventure. Her infectious energy and genuine excitement for every bite we took made the entire experience incredibly enjoyable. Overall, I cannot express enough gratitude to my wonderful tour guide for making our food tour in Amsterdam an absolute highlight of our trip. Her engaging personality, friendly demeanor, and immense knowledge made every moment memorable. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a unique and immersive culinary experience in Amsterdam. She is an invaluable asset to any food tour and undoubtedly one of the best guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you once again for an incredible experience!"MillieAbout local MayraLeiden, August 2023

Fantastic Tastings Tour of Amsterdam!
"We had a wonderful food tasting tour of several of Amsterdam’s favorite specialties with Mayra on 8/17/23. Mayra was amazing! She was so knowledgeable, not only about the best food spots, but also about the city’s history, architecture and culture. She was able to customize the food selections based on our preferences, with a nice balance of savory and sweet, with an emphasis on the best local vendors for a truly authentic experience. Mayra’s congenial, personable and enthusiastic tour should not be missed! One of the highlights of our European trip."JoyceAbout local MayraLeiden, August 2023
