"Shopping in Amsterdam needn’t mean a pair of clogs and some tulips. This guided tour leads you away from the crowded main shopping streets and into hidden backstreets lined with independent and intriguing local stores. The focus here is firmly on unique and locally designed goods. There's everything from the city's coolest T-shirt shop to an art store where everything is crafted from up-cycled materials and a portrait. But this is more than just some retail therapy. You'll have the chance to meet local shop owners and learn about business and commerce in Amsterdam."
