About me

Hello from Huanhuan (pronounce it like the Spanish 'Juan')! Great that you are planning to visit A'dam, after being here for almost 6 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. 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!

Hey there, I'm Anna, a lens-based artist. Art museums and galleries are my zones of comfort, as well as art-house cinema. I'm an open person who likes to meet new people and I'm always willing to share my knowledge about the great places I discovered in the city.

Hello, I’m Vincent, french expat, born and raised in the alps and now living below the sea level. It started when I went to Amsterdam for a week-end at the age of eighteen and this city never left my mind since. I moved in Amsterdam at the end of my studies few years ago and I have no reasons to leave so far: open-minded, tolerant, crazy and chill at the same time. I showed the city to many many friends and family members and now I would like to show around to more people as I feel passionate about it. I work in web-development, love to share drinks with my friends, running as much as I appreciate food and of course traveling: lately a trek in Nepal and a road trip in a camper around Eastern Europe. If you’re looking for a glimpse of the daily life in Amsterdam feel free to book me.
