What you’ll do

A day in Amsterdam is at your disposal, you lucky thing. Why not make the most of it with one of our Amsterdam hosts in a customized experience of the city?

As someone who knows their home inside and out, your host can’t wait to share the essence of Amsterdam with you.

Visit iconic venues, like the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum, or stroll The Nine Streets (De Negen Straatjes) that connect the city’s main waterways.

Perhaps you’d like to take in some traditional Dutch architecture whilst cruising down the famous Herengracht canal?  But wait, did someone mention food?

Part of a city’s culture is of course, the cuisine. Stop at a street vendor for some traditional Dutch sweets like stroopwafels, pop into a local eatery recommended by your host or visit a food market nearby.

Whatever your preference, you’ll glimpse the authentic Amsterdam with a local by your side. Spend the day as you would with a friend: chatting, laughing and taking in the atmosphere of a truly magnificent city.

Anna was a pleasure to see Amsterdam with. We requested both historical and city sites. Anna was curteous, polite, well informed and, since I am handicapped in a power chair, very considerate of assisting us in locating access through out our tour. European cities are older and generally not built for handicapped accessibility, so it was very good to have such a talented guide to accommodate us and provide a smooth experience. I would easily hire Anna as a tour guide again and recommend her to others.

Lawrence was our amazing tour guide. He accommodated all our interests and showed us the fun of Amsterdam. We loved every minute of it. My three kids loved him and still talking about the amazing time we had that day. We Would absolutely recommend this tour.

Fantastic all day walking tour

Can’t say enough about Olga and this tour. We had a fantastic all day walking tour and went over our time. She customized it on the spot and we saw all the main sites and many off the beaten path non touristy things as well. We experienced so much during the day, including a delicious lunch and a couple of coffee stops. We walked and talked and experienced this great city and at the end, we asked for a dinner recommendation - and that turned out to be fantastic Very highly recommend Olga and this tour.
