See some great sites of Amsterdam and enjoy one of the most controversial of Dutch foods: A raw herring!

Herring Tour

On this Segway tour we take you on a exciting voyage of Amsterdam.  You will see the canals, some of the most beautiful plaza’s Amsterdam has to offer and to top it all off we will stop at one of Amsterdam’s local fish shops to experience something truly Dutch: The eating of a raw herring fish.

The eating of raw herring dates back to 1380 when the technique of curing the herring by removing it’s intestines directly after it being caught was invented. This technique ensures a longer shelve life of the herring. The Dutch enjoy their raw herring with raw onions or with a large pickle. The method of eating is also unique: You hold the herring by it’s tail and lower it into your mouth (the head is removed when curing the fish) and take a bite.

For those not so adventurous or for those with a weak stomach, luckily the herring is not the only thing available at the fish shop. You can also have some “Kibbeling” fried fish (usually cod) that is covered in a spice mix which gives it a nice and tasty crust or enjoy a Dutch smoked eel sandwich.
