Begin your tour at a central location in Amsterdam, where you meet your group and set off to explore Amsterdam’s coffeeshop and cannabis culture.

Head to the Dam Palace and immerse yourself in the ambiance at one of Amsterdam’s oldest coffeeshops. Discover the history behind the city’s lenient marijuana policy from your guide.

Move on to more coffeeshops for comprehensive insight into the culture. Along the way, stroll the city’s streets and notice historic landmarks, including a secluded medieval courtyard. On the 3-hour tour, stop off for a complimentary local snack, with the option to purchase food on the 2-hour tour.

At the end of your tour, conclude at a central location near Rembrandtplein, with new understanding of the city’s relaxed attitude to marijuana.
