Overview
Amsterdam is famous for its coffeeshops, which serve cannabis, but most walking tours don’t provide much insight into the city’s legal marijuana phenomenon. Discover the coffeehouse culture properly and visit several shops with a guide. On this tour, learn the history and legality of weed in the Netherlands from your local guide. Select a tour duration and itinerary that suits your interests.
Highlights
  • Visit several coffeeshops in Amsterdam with a seasoned local guide 
  • Learn the history behind the liberal attitudes towards marijuana 
  • Personalized experience thanks to a small-group tour size
  • Upgrade to include an additional coffeehouse or a Red Light District tour
What to Expect
Begin your tour at a central location in Amsterdam, where you meet your group and set off to explore Amsterdam’s coffeeshop and cannabis culture. Head to the Dam Palace and immerse yourself in the ambiance at one of Amsterdam’s oldest coffee shops. Discover the history behind the city’s lenient marijuana policy from your guide. Move on to more coffee shops for a comprehensive insight into the culture. Along the way, stroll the city’s streets and notice historic landmarks, including a secluded medieval courtyard. On the 3-hour tour, stop off for a complimentary local snack, with the option to purchase food on the 2-hour tour. At the end of your tour, conclude at a central location near Rembrandtplein, with a new understanding of the city’s relaxed attitude to marijuana.

Incredibly rude tour guide American Matt or Michael, offered the entire group to share my personal lunch that I had paid for. He did this of his own volition without asking me first. Needless to say I needed to tell the group I would not be sharing so that they could order their

I would suggest adjusting the tour so that it concentrates on the ‘coffee shop’ experience and culture. Whilst I found the conversations fun and the guide upbeat and ‘on the ball’, trying to cram in everything makes for a rather hurried experience.

Thanks for the suggesion! The website says that we are a tour for beginniers ( who are open to learning amsterdam and coffeeshops) , so if you want a more focused coffeeshop tour experience, then to go for the cannabis lovers tour we offer. If you felt hurried, then may I suggest having some space cake to slow you down! thanks for your opinion
