I from Hungary and I moved to Amsterdam to study, but this great city just "made me" stay here even after I was done with school. I'm a friendly social person who likes talking to people, I'm interested in languages and different cultures, as I have wide circle of intonational friends and colleagues. I love doing spontaneous activities, going to concerts, events, restaurants and bars. I like making cocktails and accessories, cooking and playing music, as well as just walking around and discovering the ever changing face of Amsterdam. I have studied in the cultural field, therefore I know lots of museums, galleries, concert venues and other art-related places to visit. I live here for more then 6 years and lived in several areas of the city, I could show people the hidden beauties of Amsterdam that are usually not easy to find for tourists.

Hello, My name is Riccardo and I've been living in Amsterdam since 2012. I have developped an extreme interest in the city's history, sights, and architecture. I enjoy the combination of liveliness and calmness that this city has to offer. I personally enjoy walking through the city, observing the uncountable little gems that this beautiful town has to offer, from the hidden spots such as the Begijnhof or the Zuiderkerk, to the idyllic and utopian neighborhoods designed by the School of Amsterdam. Architecture and Urbanization has always fascinated me, and a city like Amsterdam is a haven considering the way it was planned and it developed throughout the centuries. Other activities which I enjoy is visiting the numerous breweries which have started to appear recently in the city, as a homebrewer myself, I enjoy learning and teaching the secrets of master brewers. I am passionate about the history of the city and how it has lead to the current stage. My other hobbies include listening to music, especially in live events or via vinyl, brewing beer and enjoying craft beer. If you enjoy visiting micro breweries, or discovering secret spots of the city which are off the beaten path, I believe that I would be the right choice for you.

Just hop on my bike and explore the city, it is a great feeling and activity not only I can do a good amount of excersize, but to get to know the city! Checking out the new/established galleries are always interesting things to do for me, aside with spending time for my own art making. I can introduce the art and culture of Amsterdam :)

Hello from Huanhuan (pronounce it like the Spanish 'Juan')! Great that you are planning to visit A'dam, after being here for 5+ years, this city still wows me. I am a social and optimistic explorer who enjoys a good talk and shares a belly laugh. I have a background in media and am very much into photography, taking my Nikon buddy out for a city stroll is one of my favorite things to do. I could show you the lifestyle scene and hidden gems of A'dam, from the characteristic restaurants to cafes to concept stores, from the parks locals walk their dogs and the venues they hang out. I'd love to make a tailored trip for you if you are particular interested in one thing. Oh, you could get some quality photo captures for free if you feel like it. Just drop me a line and we will figure it out together! Cheers!

I have lived in Amsterdam for 10 years now, and the city still doesn’t bore me. Though I have lived in many places and travelled the world, I would always come back to Amsterdam. It is really my city, it has stolen my heart and I Invite you to let me carry this love onto you. I have lived in Ghana and South Africa for 5 years and just returned from a 4 month university exchange to Boston. Because of this I think I can adapt and connect to people from different cultures more easily. I am always genuinely interested in how others perceive certain aspects of life and wouldn’t be scared to ask their opinion. How else can we get a more worldly view, right? Right now, I am a university student, but I wasn’t always. I have pursued a professional career in dance for 15 years until I was 20. This is the artistic side in me, and I still love going to dance classes with friends. Also I keep myself updated to all new dance events coming to town. Since that time I have begun running and doing yoga as well. If there’s one thing people always tell me, is that I have lots of energy and never fail to entertain. But after a nice work-out there's nothing better to have a late Sunday brunch at one of the local eateries, which you'll find me doing almost every weekend. Food is really another passion I have in life. I don’t just like food, I LOVE it (who doesn’t?) And I enjoy going on the hunt for the new best eatery in town. If I could sum up what people love about me I would say that I am: kind, sincere and loving, but at the same time straight-forward and direct. Also people like the fact that I can take control and be a leader (even though this isn’t what I would naturally do at first). I am very organized and punctual, but I always take time to have a conversation with someone, because I believe as people we need other people to really feel alive. Life on your own isn’t fun, we need others to share it with and I really hope I can share my city, the city of Amsterdam, with anyone who is interested!

Im a lovely, representative and very friendly lady. I'm responsible and respect everyone irrespective of age/background/religion. I am very trustworthy and I will definitely make sure that the group or client have a great day! I can express myself very well in Dutch & English. Others describe me as loyal, honest, aproachable and fun to be around with. I'm a shopaholic and have a good taste of style. My talent is that I can make you feel comfortable as if we know eachother and I'm good company. The things I love about my city is the variety that it offers, whether you are young or mature, it will never be boring. From relaxing at the cafe enjoying a beverage or strolling around the galleries or shop till you drop. Due to Im living in Amsterdam for all my life; I know exactly how to fill a daily programme, though that depends also on the age of the tourists. For example for a group with elders; I will bring them to the galleries and flower markets and the parc if the weather allows it, and later on a boat trip and small shopping. Younger ones will love the cafe and the famous red light district and coffeeshops and shopping. When the weather doesn't cooperate; the cinema and galleries will be a interesting option. Why would I be a geat local? I'm at a good age even though I look much younger, so I will be able to put a smile on your faces and come back to Amsterdam.
