Anybody who has been to Amsterdam will agree that the city is so much more than the sum of its parts, it’s a feeling!

Whilst you might not be able to tick off every sight in a single day, one of our friendly Amsterdam hosts can absolutely help you tap into its addictive energy!

Join them on a personal experience of the city in a way that blends both tourist musts and local gems.

You might want to take a cruise on the canals, visit the Anne Frank House, gawk in wonder at the Van Gogh Museum or traipse through the medieval city center, but we’d also encourage you to allow your host to pull you away from the sights and enjoy some downtime in a quiet, authentic Amsterdam neighborhood, too.

We recommend the Jordaan neighborhood - it’s quaint, vibey, and the architecture is spectacular! With coffee in hand, take to the streets! The tulips are blooming and the city is waiting.

    • Get to know the real Amsterdam with a local, avoiding the tourist traps but seeing the highlights
    • Tick off your ‘must see’ famous sites in a day
    • Eat Dutch delicacies at places that are loved by locals - pick up some street food on the run or give your feet a break and stop by at an eatery
    • Pause to indulge in delicious sweet treats like stroopwaffles or poffertjies
    • Soak up the history of the city by chatting to locals or engaging your host in conversation
    • Get tips from your host (over a coffee or beer, perhaps) for the rest of your stay in Amsterdam
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
