Amsterdam visitors who love learning about a destination through its food scene will likely enjoy participating in a food tour. Traveler-approved Eating Amsterdam Food Tours offers multiple food outings, including the Amsterdam Food & Canals Tour (which tacks on an hourlong boat tour after three hours of tastings throughout the city) and the Taste of Amsterdam at Twilight tour (an evening excursion in Amsterdam's Oud West neighborhood). But the company's most popular experience is its Jordaan Food Tour, a 3 ½-hour tour through the culturally and historically rich Jordaan neighborhood. During the excursion, foodies can try local staples like apple pie, raw herring, Gouda cheese and stroopwafel (a thin waffle with a caramel filling).

Previous participants raved about the Jordaan Food Tour, citing its small group size (no more than 10 people can join an outing), knowledgeable guides and large tasting portions as highlights. Several also appreciated the inclusion of a beer from a local brewery during the tour. To make the most of the excursion, past travelers suggest saving room for every dish by eating a light breakfast (or skipping it altogether).

Prices for Eating Amsterdam Food Tours' experiences range from 79 euros ($89) per person to 115 euros (about $129.50) per person, depending on the tour type. Each tour includes samples at up to eight different drinking and dining establishments. Most tour departure points are located within walking distance of a bus or tram stop. Visit the Eating Amsterdam Food Tours website to learn more and book an outing.

#1 Vondelpark

Located southwest of the city center, the 116-acre Vondelpark is the favorite leafy retreat of just about everyone. Not only is it the largest city park in Amsterdam, it's also one of the most revered in all of the Netherlands. Most recent travelers said they enjoyed people-watching and picnicking at the park, but other reviewers recommend avoiding a late-night visit as the park can be a little frightening once the sun sets. During the day, though, the park is filled with couples, families and friends, and is definitely worth a visit.

Ponds, fields and playgrounds are connected by winding paths, which also run by an open-air theater, a rollerblade rental, a rose garden, several cafes and a range of statues and sculptures. Open dawn to dusk, you can take trams 1, 2 or 5 to the Leidseplein, and you'll have just a quick two-minute walk to reach the park's entrance. The park is free to visit.
