Cool Courtyards – High Tea – Ancient Amsterdam

Experience Amsterdam life of ages ago with Mokum Events' Cool Courtyards - High Tea - Ancient Amsterdam trip.

See how poor elderly people used to live. The peacefulness in these ancient courtyards in the noisy city center will definitely surprise you!

10.00 am - 12.00 pm Cool Courtyards

Our tourguide will take you to the noriously popular Jordaan and will make sure that you will enjoy the old hidden courtyards. We will go to the 'Sint-Andrieshof', 'the Claes Claeszhofje', 'the Karthuizerhofje' and the 'Raepenhofje'.

12.00 pm - 01.15 pm High Tea

In the afternoon we will have a magnificent High Tea in a restaurant, specially selected for your pleasure.

01.30 pm - 04.00 pm Old Amsterdam

In the afternoon you will get to know the ancient Mokum and go back in time hundreds of years. Only a small section of the city has slightly changed since. We will take you to former VOC times.

Your group will be split into teams of 5-8 people. Armed with an old city map, each team will plan its own route through the area, around the Wallen (Red Light District) and from the Schreierstoren (tower) to the Rembrandtplein (square). Sounds easy, doesn't it? Try to solve all the problems along the way and earn Old Dutch Coins in the process.

At the end of the day, while you are enjoying a drink, we will decide, based on the number of gained Dutch Coins, whether it was easy or not.

You can book this arrangement with fewer participants than stated on this page, if you are willing to pay for the required number!

Each component of the program mentioned on this page can obviously be booked on its own or scheduled in a different order. Your entire program will be tailor-made according to your personal demands!

Does ‘Mokum Events’ only speak and guide the events in Dutch, or are other languages also available?
Our guides speak several languages, so almost all trips, excursions, guided tours and arrangements can also be followed in various languages.
Our group is smaller than the minimum number of participants, can I still join the event?
Yes, you can. However, since we commit ourselves for a minimum number of participants, we request you to pay this minimum rate. Please, contact us in advance!
Where in Amsterdam do the arrangements start?
Many trips start in the vicinity of the Amsterdam Central Railway Station (CS), but this depends completely on the chosen arrangement. Our employees will advise you in advance about the right point of departure.
Is my requested date available?
Through our systems, we can immediately check if your requested arrangement is available on the planned date. If so, we’ll advise you to make a reservation as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointments.
At what time can I start the event?
You can specify this entirely according to you wishes! This will however partly depend on the chosen arrangement, but in principle the events start whenever you want them to start!
an we also join guided tours or workshops made by other groups?
No, unfortunately you can not. “Mokum Events” organises trips and arrangements exclusively for groups, completely tailored to specific desires. It’s for that reason other persons can’t join arrangements made by other groups of people.
Do the trips also take place in bad weather?
Definitely! If it rains, we also go into town! We can arrange rain ponchos and umbrellas if necessary and can stay in the pub a bit longer. Amsterdam is also beautiful if the weather is not soo nice, you can take our word for it!
How will we go from place “a” to place “b”?
Our guides will take you from one point to the other (unless you only have to cover for example 100 meters). You will always receive an itinerary so you will know where you have to go.
Are company trips and arrangements tax-deductible?
In general, all costs of a company trip are tax-deductible. However, only if these costs are reasonable according to the tax authorities. The treasury also states that 75% of all employees must be able to join the event. These 75% may however also consist of a certain part or division of the company.
Can you send us a brochure or price list?
Mokum Events does not use brochures or price lists. We love to involve you in designing the ideal arrangement. Custom-made trips, remember? That’s why we can’t quote fixed rates. After all, everything depends on your wishes and ideas! Our offer is a personal offer, based on all your choices.
When do we have to pay our custom-made trip or event?
We will send you an invoice in advance, which has to be paid in full, not later than 14 days after you have received the invoice at the latest.
