Amsterdam is a city like no other. Famous for coffee shops, bicycles, and prostitution, the city is also renowned for its liberal laws, alternative housing arrangements, and being the first in the world to recognize marriage equality.
Delve into the alternative scene that makes Amsterdam a must-visit destination for people over the world. Explore the origins of these facets of Amsterdam society, such as the post-WWII housing crisis that began today’s current phenomenon of living in boats or in squats, and the counter-culture movements that developed into today’s unique atmosphere, including the city’s most famous coffee shop, and the street art hidden in the city center.
This is the real Amsterdam - the side of the city that locals love, and that visitors come to experience. This tour is a must for anyone wanting to really experience this unique city!
