What people are saying about Damrak Avenue

I took the city walking tour and I was amazed: I already knew Amsterdam is a very interesting city, but I was surprised it has such a rich history. Our guide Miguel was great, he explained many stories and funny things about Amsterdam and the Netherlands. We learned to know the city from different points of view and we got nice indications about good restaurants and bars. After the tour we had a cheese tasting, they explained us their cheese is made with traditional methods. We tried delicious cheeses (even a 3 years old one) and wines. Highly recommendable!
