Every landmark and hidden corner holds a special significance and I’m looking forward to sharing these stories with you. As a local who has spent most of my life living in Amsterdam, this city is my home. As your guide, let me show you the real side of Amsterdam, starting from the historical Dam Square, all the way to Nieuwmarkt, which can be found just east of the Red Light District. I’ll bring you to an area where cool local hotspots can be spotted, and don’t worry about getting lost in Jordaan where we’ll admire the colorful canal houses. From bright buildings, history everywhere, and outdoorsy vibes to the Rembrandtplein, you’ll not only see the famous sites around Amsterdam but also discover under-the-radar gems known only to us locals. Whether you are visiting for the first time or looking to know the city better, you can be sure that we’ll venture off the beaten path, take our time to trace Amsterdam’s origin and immerse in the local culture. Along the way, I’ll share with you interesting insights into my city, and you’ll walk away feeling as if you’ve lived here all your life too. We’ll end this experience with amazing memories and photos, as I lead you to one of my favourite secret places in the city.
