Riccardo O.

Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands

Hello, I'm Riccardo and I was born in Amsterdam from an Italian family.

For this reason, I consider myself a joining point between the two cultures.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Audio Production.
I am a passionate traveler and I understand the needs and demands of people who wish to learn about the sights, history and culture of the place they are visiting. History and Art History have always fascinated me from a very early age and living in a city like Amsterdam, with such a rich historical heritage, has always thrilled me. I am very passionate when telling people about the marvelous stories of this cosmopolitan city.

Amsterdam is a unique place, the first planned city of the modern age, famous for its extensive network of canals, and it's unique lifestyle. In this fabulous city, one can find more or less anything: you can pass from a busy street full of shops and cafes to small picturesque alleyways which seem to have been trapped in time. The city has a lot to offer to any sort of visitors: people looking for cultural and historical beauties will have more than enough to feast on. Museum lovers will not know where to start from, considering how long the list of options is. Those who are interested in enjoying themselves on a night out, will find out that Amsterdam has one of the liveliest nightlife in Europe.

Come to join me if you feel like trying the real Amsterdam Experience!

A Recent Review of this guide

WOW! I am a Virtuoso travel consultant member and I took a quick weekender to Amsterdam September 14 - 16, 2018. I hired Riccardo as my guide. Riccardo was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, flexible, everything you would want in a guide!! Honest to goodness, he's just fantastic. We hit it off so well, in fact, we hung out together AFTER our tour for about an hour or so just getting to know each other better as two human beings...and isn't that what traveling is all about??!! #BestGuide
