The oldest Food Tour in Amsterdam

We have fulfilled thousands of Hungry Birds’ bellies & hearts over the course of a decade on our friendly, relaxed & interactive walking food tours. We are proud to be the oldest food tour in Amsterdam and call the beautiful metropolitan vibrant village of Amsterdam our home. Hungry Birds is about celebrating the people, stories and small food businesses that make our city. We believe food is love and bring people together through food.  Hungry Birds is all about the joy to share our love, stories & knowledge of  Amsterdam with the world.

More than just a tour, our experiences feel more like an immersive journey into Amsterdam’s street food culture and everyday life from a local perspective.

Highlights From Our Tours


Top 5 most frequently asked questions

Please let us know if you (or anyone in your group) have any dietary restrictions (for e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergy, etc.) when you inquire for the tour. As long as we know in advance, we’ll be happy and do our best to accommodate your needs. The Hungry Birds experience is vegetarian-friendly. However, please let us know in advance if you are vegetarian and whether or not you eat fish. If you’re not a fish eater, you’ll have to skip one stop. But trust us, nobody walks away hungry. During the experience, we taste some cakes, sandwiches and cookies, etc, that contain butter, flour and eggs. Therefore it’s impossible for us to find a substitute at each location. If you don’t mind skipping a few stops and you’re flexible with your diet, we could probably work something out!

The Hungry Birds food tours are a family/child friendly activity. We have welcomed many children on our tours in the past and they usually have a great time tasting the variety of different foods and sweets. We walk at a moderate and relaxed pace. However, your ‘Mother Bird’ will always make sure to take into account everyone’s walking pace. We will walk around 5 to 7,000 steps. Children are very welcome on the tour. If they are below the age of 6, they can join for free.

We meet at the front of the McDonalds on the AlbertcuypStraat in De Pijp neighborhood. The exact address of our meeting point will be sent automatically together with a confirmation email after you’ve booked an experience with us. Please check the address and directions beforehand to know how to reach us on the day of your tour. In case you don’t receive an email with meeting details from us, please send an email to

Our regular experiences are always run in English, but we also offer private tours in Dutch for groups of 6 or bigger. Please let us know in advance if your group prefers a tour in a language other than English. 

Hungry Birds Original Experience (Monday to Saturday) visits about about 7-8 locations and lasts between 4 and 5 hours. You will walk between 5-7,000 steps during the tour.
