Quality Verified Registered on May 09, 2023

My name is Olmo and I am Dutchman. Tourism has been my profession for over 10 years, both in Amsterdam as well as abroad. I have traveled to many wonderful places and I've met people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures. This has led to adopting the non-Dutch passions of dancing salsa and cooking.

Tour description

Discover Amsterdam in a unique way! Are you ready?

We will be discovering 3 main parts of Amsterdam: the Old town, the UNESCO listed Canals and the area Jordaan. Besides that, I will share you loads of insider stories about the habits of the Dutch, including food and drinks, bicycles ending up in the canals and many more. 

We will be wandering for about 1:45 - 2:00 hours through the center, where I will be answering all your questions and share numerous stories about the city. Without spending too much time on the history of our country, I will certainly cover the most relevant parts of it (to the city of Amsterdam), I will highlight the impact WO II has had and I will highlight several insights on the architecture seen around the city.

As I'm a true Dutchman, I have got many recommendations for you, both for the city of Amsterdam as other parts of the country (and even potentially for your next destination, if applicable).

The languages I speak besides English and Dutch are Spanish and German.

Do we see us soon?

Best, Olmo

Olmo was an amazing guide! He is so friendly and fun to hang out with, and is a really inspiring person. You can really tell he knows a lot about Amsterdam and the Dutch culture. And he gave us great recommendations. If you are looking for both history and a local experience, you have to book this tour with Olmo!

What all three of us have liked about Olmo's tour was his mix of knowledge of special spots, enthusiasm and humour. The hours he has spent with us and a couple of others are a perfect introduction into some other layers of Amsterdam.

A true local with intimate knowledge of the city and really connects with people from all over the world! He also knows the best spots for delicacies (as a chef, he even made it on tv)
