3 h -Leave the airport, see Amsterdam with local private guide Yvonne!

I will meet you at Schiphol airport. You can leave your luggage in a locker or check in for your connection flight. We will take a train to Amsterdam Central Station where we start a walking tour through the historical center.

During my private walking tour I show you the highlights of Amsterdam such as the Red Light District where we see a combination of history, every day life, arts and crafts. We visit Dam square, the origin of Amsterdam with monuments commemorating Word War II. Of course I will tell you about the history of Amsterdam and I give you an impression about living here nowadays. Admire the former houses of the rich merchants and take pictures on scenic bridges.

You can taste real Dutch delicacies such as cookies or a croquette. After my tour you will know more about Amsterdam and its inhabitants. We return by train to the airport or if you can spend more time in the city I can give you suggestions for places to visit or restaurants.

I am looking forward to showing you around!

A Recent Review of this tour

Yvonne is a delightful guide. Her introduction to Amsterdam on my first short visit was very interesting and thoughtfully tailored to my interests and the time available. She introduced me to many small details and hidden treasures that I would not have found on my own. We had a thoroughly enjoyable walk around the city - in spite of the bad weather!
