Salomé T.

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

I'm Salomé, a local guide in Amsterdam for the past 5 years.

I am a local shop owner, and have worked on many cultural/social projects in the city center.
Together with my husband Ian - who is also on the ToursByLocals platform - I have had the pleasure to show visitors around in our beautiful hometown!

MY TOURS
I like to introduce you to local people, food, and current events in town. Hear about different (local) perspectives, surprising sides of Amsterdam and visit unexpected places.
I do many tours in combination with my husband (Ian), who is more the 'history-expert', where I am more the cultural and current-events guide. Many times people book one tour with me and one with him.

LOCAL SHOP OWNER
I've studied Social & Cultural Work (BA) and have worked with different non-profits and in tourism in Amsterdam. My husband and me are the only guides in Amsterdam who own a (chocolate!) shop in the old city center/Red Light District. Here I am involved in a big project that is reshaping the neighborhood and in some social & cultural projects.

MY ROOTS
I was born-and-raised in the countryside of the Netherlands (Friesland), and since 10+ years a happy citizen of Amsterdam.
My ancestors are connected to the Dutch 'spice trade', the trade that made Amsterdam the richest town in the world in the 17th century.
I hope to meet you soon and create an unforgettable stay in Amsterdam for you!

A Recent Review of this guide

This tour was outstanding. Not only did we learn about chocolate & spice, Salome gave us some of the history of the red light district. There was only 5 of us on the tour. Salome and her sister spent over an hour in her shop talking about chocolate and the different countries it came from. Our group was very happy with this tour and all the different samples we tried. I would recommend this tour to everyone and tell them it was great.
