About me

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.

Reviews for Riccardo

A delightful experience in an enchanting district

Riccardo was absolutely superb. He was born and raised in Amsterdam and attended university in England. His knowledge of the city and the area we toured is astounding. We all enjoyed visiting the Jordaan a delightful and charming slice of Amsterdam away from the maddening crowds. His answered all of our questions about all aspects of the city. This was one tour where I felt slightly guilty as I left feeling I received more than I paid for by the end of the tour. Reserve now.... you will not regret!

Wonderful walk in Amsterdam!

We had a great day with Riccardo Olivo in Amsterdam. He was young, energetic and very knowledgeable. We appreciated the fact that he was educated and well travelled so that we had a lot in common. He knew the city backwards and forwards. We did a lot of walking but that is really the only way to see Amsterdam. We saw more than would have been possible if we had been on a group tour. Riccardo sent us an introductory email and framed the tour to match what we wanted to see. He was just so pleasant and interesting and it was a pleasure spending the day with him.

Le jeune guide Ricardo était très sympathique ! On a bien profité!

On a bien profité des connaissances de la ville, même sous la pluie et le froid on était ravi ! Bravo Ricardo, rester toujours souriant et sympathique !
