The influence of the Dutch, and Dutch culture, on U.S. history is often underestimated. Discover the Dutch roots of New York city and state (once named New Amsterdam and New Netherland). See where the famous Pilgrim Fathers found refuge before shipping off to America. See where John Adams lived for two years before becoming the second U.S. president.

During our U.S. History walking tour of Amsterdam, your private guide tells you everything about these and other events that formed the strong present-day ties between The Netherlands and The United States.

On this two hour walk, amongst others, you get to see:
  • The location where Captain Hudson started his voyage to the American East Coast;
  • The office of the Dutch West Indies Company, the company that colonised present-day New York;
  • The wharehouse where beaver pelts from New Netherland were stored;
  • The church that was frequented by the Pilgrim Fathers;
  • John Adams home, in fact also the first U.S. Embassy ever.

It's up to you to decide at what time you want to start your walking tour, provided that its ends before 1 PM, or starts after 2 PM, so our guide can do another tour that day. Starting point will usually be the lobby of your hotel, provided that it is located in or near the city centre. Otherwise we agree upon a meeting point easily reachable by public transport from your hotel. We will send you detailed information on how to get there.

Each walking tour has a standard length of 2 hours, ends before 1 pm, or starts after 2 pm.
