About me

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.

My most exciting things to do in Amsterdam

Biking through Amsterdam is the best way to get to know all the hidden beauties of the city. After more then 6 years of cycling around here I can introduce you to places that most tourists wouldn't see. I love going to local bars and restaurants, live concerts of diverse genres, art galleries and pop-up events. Thank to my international circle of friends I have a grasp of this city from many angles :)

I am Eduardo, I born at the beautiful city of Santiago of Chile, where I grew up and studied in a quite international family (my father and all his side of the family were Spanish immigrants at Chile). I start my travels when I was 23 years old, being Peru, Cusco and Machu Picchu my first experience. After that, I decided to discover, first, my own country, living and working in different remote places as Torres del Paine at the Chilean Patagonia, the Atacama desert, the Lake district and ski spots nearby Santiago. My appetite for discovering new places was huge, which motivate me to see, now, South america. After seeing these wild nature a new idea got in my head. The people experience which took me straight in Europe. After a few years here I had the chance to see Spain, France, Estonia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Portugal and The Netherlands where I live already since 2009. I bike every where in this beautiful city of Amsterdam, therefore I could take you to places that most of people do not know.

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.
