Think of this personalized experience with one of our hosts like spending the day with a friend.

You’ll shop, drink coffee, visit popular attractions and soak up the sights and sounds of the city. Game changer: the city happens to be Amsterdam, a progressive hub of creatives, artisans, bookstores, flower-sellers and coffee breweries.

The quaint cobbled lanes flank tranquil canals, and dodging bicycles should be a national sport. After ticking off your must-see sights in the city, allow your host to lead you off the beaten track and offer a glimpse into authentic local life in Amsterdam.

They can’t wait to share their home city with you, and although half a day isn’t possibly long enough to see all there is in this bustling urban antiquity, we hope you’ll embrace it all!
