What you’ll do

Ah Amsterdam, you dreamy thing. You’ll join one of our local Amsterdam hosts, as they show you their mischievous city in a bespoke experience tailored just for you!

Orientate yourself among the Golden Age canals as you take to the cobbled streets - there’s no telling what you might find.

Tulip traders, floating bookstores, monasteries converted into homes, hidden gardens, vinyl stores and witty streetside attractions are all waiting for you. Don’t be afraid to ask your host questions and take advantage of their local know-how.

Sip on cold brew coffees as you stop by at the Van Gogh Museum, or visit the authentic architectural wonder that is Beginhof.

Our host just can’t wait to share their home city with you and soon, we hope, you’ll be feeling at home too once they’ve shared their tips for where to eat, how to get around and spilled a local secret or two.

P.S. Watch out for the bikes! We’re serious, it’s wild out there.

We met Anna for our customized tour of Amsterdam. Could not have been better!! She listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions that she thought we might like— and we did like her suggestions!! She was knowledgeable and friendly- very very easy to work with!! Definitely ask for Anna!

Olga, did a great job showing us around the city! We learned so much! She was so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Olga as a ambassador to Amsterdam.

Best Way to Start a Trip

This is my second time to start a trip via CityUnscripted and it's another home run. Anna was accommodating (we had to change our start time a couple of times), and created an itinerary which suited to our interests (and more!) It was an awesome and we enjoyed the rest of our trip - armed with Anna's knowledge.
