      About This Amsterdam Tour

      Let your mind wander back to the 17th century; a time when investors willing to risk their fortunes, and adventurers willing to risk their lives, combined to create the Dutch Golden Age. 

      Your guide, an expert on history, will tell you all about the way the Amsterdam canals became the focal point of the wealth and growth that came to the city, and the power that came along with it.
      Hear all about the merging of wealth, trade, and art as you examine the luxurious architecture in the homes of the rich. Stop at an authentic café for a break and more in-depth discussion. And learn more about Dutch life at the Amsterdam Museum.
      It's a fascinating three hours of history, art, beauty, and daring.
