I could not have picked a better venue to see and experience the food and culture
of Amsterdam. Ester and Zosia were the perfect hosts taking our small group on a culinary
tour thru Amsterdam experiencing everything from the local flavors to a bit of the international cuisine. The owners of the restaurants and shops we visited were such a delight to meet- they were so engaged with our group sharing their stories and food- You really felt like a part of their family!

I can not think of a better way to see and experience Amsterdam- You will not leave the tour hungry by any means...The passion that Esther and Zosia shared with us about their city, food and culture was amazing! Cant wait to do it again!

We had a lovely day out with Astrid of Hungry Birds hunting out interesting food in streets and back alleys. The food was always interesting, sometimes great and never boring. We saw lots of the interesting and historical sights in Amsterdam and Astrid provided a terrific commentary. We are a bit older and she tempered the pace of the tour accordingly. We finished up with a beer in an historic pub. It was a sunny day and a terrific way to spend it,. Highly recommended!

We had 4 couples staying in Amsterdam for 3 days, upon arrival we were not impressed, so we started scrambling for something to add to the trip and stumbled across this foodie tour. It was the highlight of our trip (and we did 4 other private tours). Zosia is an amazing, articulate, young lady, who is knowledgeable and very charismatic. Her passion comes through in her tour. We all had different "favorites" from the food tastings, but it was Zosia's relationship with the vendors and the mutual respect that we appreciated so much. This is a "must do" tour, but you have to book early! The only con is that our group was large (8) so it was hard as you walked the streets to be able to hear her, so we had to rotate to her side to ask questions and learn about the area.

The wife and I stayed in Amsterdam for three days & did the Hungry Birds tour on the last day of our visit. It was easily our favorite part of our stay & we wish we would have done it at the beginning of our stay. Astrid was our tour guide & she was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed a variety of fantastic foods & will miss them til our next visit.

Me and my boyfriend went on the bike tour with Ester on a Saturday. It was absolutely wonderful! It didn't feel like a tour at all, it was more like we were meeting up with a local friend, it was very personal and cosy and the conversation during the "tour" was something that you experience with friends, about work, school, family, life, food, travelling etc. It was just us and this other couple (and Ester of course) so there was a lot of talking! The food was delicious and it was so interesting to taste various kinds of food! Ester gave us a lot of information about Amsterdam and Holland as well as the places we visited and biked through, and the places and people behind the food. At the end of the tour she gave us very personal and encouraging words and a hug :) We asked Ester to recommend some restaurants and bars to visit later and the ones we had the time to try turned out to be great! I absolutely do recommend this to anyone who wants to experience something unique and taste some of the delicious food in Amsterdam!

Ester, hopefully we'll see you next time in Bali :)
