Hello! I am Nilson, a 33-year-old Cuban and I live in this beautiful city of Amsterdam with my Dutch girlfriend. Since I live here I have been able to get to know many of this city since I am very passionate about the history of the city since it is wonderful. I love walking with people to teach them all the history I know about the city and everything there is to do when you come to visit. I have been working as a guide for about a year now and I like to take a tour in which people see me not only as a guide but also as a family and thus teach them in a closer and more enjoyable way about my city. Since when I came here four years ago I didn't know anyone, only my girlfriend had the opportunity to discover the city on my own. A rough start, yes! But today thanks to that I have many more stories to tell. In each tour I will always do my best so that your visit is the most pleasant and pleasant. Greetings!
