Other sites downtown include, the cities oldest dike, Chinatown, and a medieval gatehouse.
Half-way through the tour, leave the touristy center, after stopping at the Dutch East Indies House, and head off to a more picturesque side of the city. Experience a more day-to-day life style among the 16th and 17th century canal homes. See some flower markets and local shops on the way.
Finally, the tour takes you to the Amsterdam Historic Museums free gallery, and a glimpse of the Begijnhof. Get to sample a local favorite - pancakes - at the end of your tour.
