Tour description

Why is Amsterdam called Amsterdam? How did a city like this develop in an area that was nothing but grassy sandland back in the 13th century? What is the city's weapon for? What are the 3 most important districts of the centre?

I will let you experience A'dam with and like a local on my walking tour. 

As my hometown for my entire life, I will take you through all the highlights of the nicest capital in the world. More importantly, I will take you through the alleys and backstreets that you would have never found yourself! See it as a mix between history and daily life

ps. Of course, you get a list of my personal recommendations. Through the eyes of a local: the best cafes, restaurants, museums and things to do.

pps. I am one of the few Amsterdam 'by night' tour guides so if a time slot is open for in the night: come & join!

ppps. I have got the A'dam tour guide license and this is max. 15 persons. Please do not bring more ppl than booked, without asking : ))

The tour will cover the areas of: 

- the medieval city centre created between 1200-1300

- the historical highlights on Dam Square

- the canals / Unesco World heritage (2010)

- the vibrant Jordaan district

- the Red Light District

- Amsterdam's first streets

I loved the more local part of the tour. it was interesting to see the difference from the typical touristy areas. If it wasn't for the tour I would've probably not known that side of the city. Great experience
