Your alternative walking tour begins in central Amsterdam, where you’ll greet your guide and embark on a journey that strays from the traditional tourist trail. Learn about local counterculture during the 1960s and pass houseboats and squats that resulted from the postwar housing crisis.

Throughout the unbiased tour, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss hot Amsterdam topics, such as gentrification and the Coalition Project, which aims to reform the Red Light District. Your tour concludes at your original departure point in central Amsterdam.
