Learn how the Dutch shaped U.S. history

We’ll meet at the Herenmarkt and then set off to trace the early history of the United States through the streets of Amsterdam. We’ll discover how New Amsterdam became New York, why the Pilgrim Fathers first came to Amsterdam, and why John Adams spent several years in the city before he became America’s second president.

We’ll learn the history of Amsterdam’s connection to the U.S. through historic sites and interesting trivia. By the end of our walk, you’ll know where the words “boss” and “cookie” originated, how an old church is connected to a street name in Fishkill N.Y. and why you should thank the Spaniards that Americans speak English. We’ll finish up with a typical Dutch drink in a pub that dates back to 1670.

I’m a historian who specializes in early modern history, with a focus on the city of Amsterdam. I started organizing tours in the city with Walking Histories in 2016. The connection between Amsterdam's past and the early history of the United States is fascinating and still traceable through the city's streets and buildings. So lets go for a walk, and find this hidden history!

Starting a walking tour in a cafe may seem a little strange however Egbert spends time explaining the history of the city using a variety of maps from throughout the ages. This makes the entire tour much more interesting and you really get to know the people you’re walking with. From the Anglo-Dutch wars to the Reformation and beyond; you’re taken on a whistle-stop tour of the last 500 years. An interesting past told with taste and humour, you’ll hear fascinating facts about American history and language, see where the 2nd president spent some time and learned how to write a proper constitution, as well as the lengths the East India Trading Co went to to get their hands on nutmeg. In reality you don’t need to be from the US to enjoy this tour - there’s enough Dutch history and visits to places that are a little bit “out of the way” that make it relevant to anyone and everyone. Egbert really knows his stuff!

Egbert shares a wealth of knowledge that must be experienced! His tours are so much more personal than the larger commercial tour companies.

Highly recommend! Such a beautiful way to see the city, and you’re not in one of those groups with a gazillion other people. There were only 4 guests on our tour! Felt confident in the host’s knowledge of the history of the city, and he was great about interacting and answering any questions we had.

Great experience, Egbert was very polite, interesting and full of knowledge about Amsterdam and European/American history. Relaxing stroll around the Dam and made our walks around the city feel all the more interesting knowing about the early days of the city. I really recommend this to anybody interested in knowing a little more about the city you are visiting from a local historian.

The tour with Egbert was a great way to begin our time in Amsterdam. He is knowledgeable and friendly and we learned a lot. He also gave us some advice about what to see on our own, which turned out to be quite helpful. The tour was a good combination of walking and talking. I made a few notes and was inspired to buy a book by a writer he mentioned (Russell Shorto). My friend was skeptical about doing a history tour, but she ended up enjoying it and said that it was one of the high points of our visit.
