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.

See you on my tour!
