Beautiful Amsterdam - Jordaan and the canals
Hey there! I'm Alex, a tour guide in Amsterdam for many years. I'm very passionate about this city, even after having to move out a while back I still call it home. Like so many I am and always have been in love with Amsterdam. A sleazy place to do a pub crawl and visit the Red Light District for many, I would like to convince you of the opposite: Amsterdam is vibrant, beautiful, alive. Outside the tourist traps that Google Maps will send you there's a city worth exploring. One that's both loud and quiet, that harbors a unique artistic side that a lot of people miss out on. One with a fascinating and important history, both in contributions to society in the form of of the arts, science, and commerce and one with lessons to learn from the past. I know this text was supposed to be about me, but I'd rather talk about Mokum. Join me and I will try to convice you that this city is worth falling in love with!
Join me on a fascinating walking tour of Amsterdam, and discover the city's rich history and vibrant culture. As a seasoned local guide,
I will take you on a journey through the charming neighborhoods of Amsterdam, showing you hidden gems and sharing fascinating stories along the way. You'll explore famous neighborhoods such as Jordaan, the famous canals as well as lesser-known spots that only a true insider like me could show you.
With my deep knowledge of the city's history and culture, you'll come away from this walking tour with a newfound appreciation for all that Amsterdam has to offer. So put on your walking shoes, grab your camera, and let Alex show you the best of Amsterdam!
