& Chocolate Tasting
Unique program: a walk through the historical city heart of Amsterdam, combined with a chocolate tasting in Cacao & Spice.
This tour is an ideal mix of history, local hotspots, changes in the area and stories about the city that became the richest town in the world due to the trade in spices, and now grew to be the largest cacao harbor in the world.
the new red light district
My husband is one of the most well known tour guides in Amsterdam, and owns a small quality tour operator. On special request we decided to join forces, and create a unique walking tour + tasting program.
Hear stories of Amsterdam as an old harbor area, multicultural Amsterdam, stories of Amsterdam's rich history and present-day Amsterdam.
The old city center/red light district is changing fast. Learn about the project behind these changes, and meet some new entrepeneurs in the area.
Cacao & Spice is one of these new shops, we work with slave-free and Direct Trade chocolate. Farmers are paid far above the FairTrade price, and all cacao comes from a biodiverse environment.
During the chocolate tasting you will taste a variety of single origin chocolates, from all different parts of the world and one of our delicious home made bonbons (vegan is possible).
You will also hear the story of the spice 'trade' in the 17th century, and how spices like nutmeg and clove are inevitably connected to Amsterdam.
This is a private program.
There is a minimum of 8 people, or paying for 8.
Due to city regulations we will need to split the group when there are more than 15 people, and walk with multiple guides.
The tour & tasting takes 2 hours total.
Price: 37,- pp
