About the tour

Edam is a peach of a Dutch town, so quaint and photogenic with its tiny houses and draw bridges and canals with great reflections and superb postcard moments. On this tour Mark will walk you around town finding great views and telling tidbits of history. Depending on the time of day of the tour, and day of the week, it might be possible to go inside some places too: a typical cheese shop and the cutest candy store imaginable. If the tour ends before 5pm Amsterdam time, there is a visit inside the huge church, the 'Grote Kerk' church on the edge of the town and see the serene space of a typical Reformed church from the 1600s as well as a peek inside the oldest museum in North Holland, a merchant's house from the 1500s with a floating cellar!

Meet Mark - That Dam Guide

Mark - That Dam Guide

Mark has been sharing places and stories about Amsterdam, his adopted home, for 10 years now and he is still smitten by the place! He absolutely loves distilling chunks of history into bite-sized bits of fun. The vibrancy of the city takes his breath away, and he loves finding odd little details to share. Live-streaming tours are an exciting adventure as it is possible to open places and areas that are not accessible on in-person tours!
