History of the Dutch East India Company
 
Founded in 1602, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) flourished for two centuries, navigating European trade networks with Asia. VOC's primary purpose was trade, exploration, and colonisation, particularly the monopolisation of the intercontinental spice trade. On this tour, you will view architectural landmarks from the Dutch golden age such as its headquarters and the shipping house. Hear stories of the merchantry networks that allowed Amsterdam to flourish for two centuries. Gain an understanding of how the repercussions of these trading networks remain relevant in the modern-day
 
We built this tour because traces of the Dutch East India Company can be seen throughout Amsterdam, but a guide is necessary to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Dutch golden age
