Make the most of your layover in Amsterdam with your own private guide!


Amsterdam is waiting for you to be discovered.

If you have at least a 6 hour layover, why not let me show you the highlights of my city?

Let me help you to maximize your time and have an unforgettable day in this beautiful city. Be surprised by our cosmopolitan capital with its historic charm.

After we have met I will take you on a highlights walking tour for 2-3 hours. There is time for shopping and tastings as well. You can ask all the questions that you have in mind and we can stop to take pictures as often as you want.
After the highlights tour you will board your Canal Cruise. A Canal Cruise is a must-do activity in Amsterdam. You will enjoy the canals, bridges, noble canal houses and funny house boats during your panoramic canal cruise.

A Recent Review of this tour

Frank gave me a very thorough walking tour, then gave me directions for taking in a few other sights before I needed to head back to the airport. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and adaptable and I learned a lot!
