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.

City Unscripted private tour in Amsterdam

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.

Warm and personal

I wanted someone to spend day one in Amsterdam with, so I’d know my way around for the remainder of my first solo trip, and Anna turned out to be the perfect host for me! She made me feel like she really understood my interests and cared for my comfort. She gave me a walking tour, showing me the streets she loves, the places she thought I would love and the charming, little details of the city which ordinarily most tourists might miss out on. She told me incredible stories and legends of old Amsterdam and showed me there’s so much more to the city than what meets the eye. Maybe it was because we have similar interests but Anna was no regular “tour guide”. She is warm and personal and I felt that we very quickly became two friends just walking around the city together. I’m so so grateful that I met her and neither of us knew it at that time but she is now a small part of what later turned out to be the most magical trip of my life. ☺️
