We’re The Hungry Birds.
An independent and personable food tour company in Amsterdam founded in 2013.
We believe that food is a universal language that brings people together and makes you experience the culture and heart of a place.
The source of inspiration for our company was a street food tour in Vietnam. That is why our tours include a lot (but not only) street food and stories about the people behind the food, the city’s local culture and daily life. We only work with a variety of honest, trusted and inspiring Amsterdam business owners who are proud of what they do. The same places where we would take our own family and friends.
hungry bird: a mindful traveler who is hungry for tasty local food, inspiring stories, personal connection, local knowledge & genuine conversation.
Think of us as your friends or motherbirds who will feed you well and take good care of you during the experience. It should feel like a friendly, relaxed food walk with your motherbird and fellow hungry birds, rather than a traditional tour.
We will of course share lots of stories along the way. But, we'd like to invite you to be yourself, share your stories as well, ask questions and connect with others. Because everyone makes the experience.
So do you think you’re a true hungry bird? Then what are you waiting for? We'd love to meet you and make you feel at home. Come and let us take you off the eaten track to discover why we love Amsterdam.

Lots of love,
Zosia, Esther-Hanna, Hizell, Esther, Charmaine & Audrey
