Private tour guide Laura Maria

Laura Maria M.

Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands

My name is Laura. I'm an experienced traveller, Amsterdam insider, explorer of history, culture, local life, and culinary enthusiast.

I provide walking tours such as city highlights, neighbourhoods, local food, and WW2 historical tours. Tours are private and fully customizable to your preferences.

I have been working in the tourism industry for more than twenty years and as a tour guide for the past two. The moment I gave my first tour I knew that this is what I was meant to do. I want to share my passion for the city and its amazing people.

I have been described as being friendly, warm personality, informative, accommodating, knowledgeable, an expert storyteller, and with a passion that is contagious.

My tours encompass not only the main highlights or hidden spots of the city but also the local lifestyle, society, enlightening information, points of interests and history. My preference is to give private tours so that it I can easily interact and connect with my group.

Amsterdam is a world city that deserves more than one visit. As your guide, I'll show you what is worthy to see.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a family of 5 (including 3 teenage boys) on a private 7 hour tour. We really wanted to get a feel for the city without going "too deep" anywhere, while also keeping the whole family engaged. Laura had a very positive personality and provided a good stream of information (sufficient for you to understand the background, but not too deep so you lost track or switch off). We walked a lot, saw a lot, and had a good sense of the various districts. Overall a very positive experience.
