Hello, dear tourists and travelers, I am Maribel, I live in Amsterdam. I am a certified tourist guide and I also work as a hostess for events and cruises. I have a degree in Social Sciences from the Catholic University of Rome and I also have a Master's degree in Cinema. I speak 4 languages ​​(Spanish, Italian, English and Dutch). For me Amsterdam is an international city, an open city full of cultural and artistic events, a city full of legends and charm. What I like most about this city is the great diversity of events that I can find throughout the year, from music, song and film festivals to international food and drink festivals. My mission is to discover with you its historic center, where you will be able to nostalgically appreciate a city that over the years has been in constant change. A city that has lived through trade and navigation. We will look together for those most emblematic places to take a photo, one of my passions, it will surely be a very fun tour.

Tour description

"I have been studying Amsterdam for several years, its culture, traditions, history and much more.
In my work I have discovered an Amsterdam full of stories, legends, stories and monuments through which different generations have passed.
Walking through its narrow streets, looking at its classic houses or understanding its myths have made my mission possible as another protagonist of this city that has grown through navigation and commerce.
I have also become a character from the past, while I try to decipher enigmas and answer all those questions that simply come to my head."

On this tour we will go through different eras, we will be able to see the monuments that have remained from that unique and solid past that has made this city a multicultural and free city but at the same time a city that will not give up its own traditions.

You will be able to choose which route to follow for this trip to the past, you will be able to look at Amsterdam from its spirituality, learn about its sufferings, you will be able to discover some stories that made it one of the most important ports in the world.

If you are willing to get lost in the past, I invite you to get on this journey full of surprises and mysteries that only those of us who live enchanted by history can tell.
