See the highlights of beautiful Amsterdam and get in touch with the Dutch


This is one of my favourite tours. Walking is the best way to see the highlights of Amsterdam. This is a private walking tour and you get the chance to explore this breathtaking city at your own pace with time for shopping and tastings!

After the tour you will know how and why the former little fishing village grew into the bustling capital of the Netherlands as we know it today.

We will stroll through the oldest part of Amsterdam along ancient canals, beautiful houses and proud church towers.
We will pass Chinatown, the Red Light District, the famous flea market and the former Jewish Quarters. We will see the Flower Market, the Beguinage and Dam Square with the Royal Palace and much more!
Explore this breathtaking city with your own private guide!

Optionally you can visit one of the world renowned museums or board your canal cruise for a fantastic and relaxing boat trip on the canals of Amsterdam after our tour. Please contact me if you wish to extend or customize your tour.

See you soon in Amsterdam!
