What you’ll do

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 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.

Our Picks

  • 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

Perfect Day

Claire was great, very attentive to what we wanted to see and do. Enjoyed visiting with her and discussing the culture of the city. We feel like we've made a new friend. Our day couldn't have been better

A fun day in the city with Olga

Olga picked me up at my hotel and we were off to explore the city of Amsterdam. Olga was extremely friendly and very flexible and that made me feel like we weren't bound to her itinerary. We had a great day exploring several places that I wouldn't have been able to find myself including the Oude Church, the smallest House of Amsterdam, a cool concept store and cafe, Theatre Tuschinski, Bloemenmarkt, flower market, Begijnhof, passing through the Van Gogh museum store, and several other picture worthy locations. Olga has such a warm personality and is a very knowledgeable guide. I truly enjoyed walking through the city with her. Many thanks again and I recommend Olga to anyone.

Simply Perfect!

Olga was superb! A+ She was on time and flowed so easily with a deep knowledge of Amsterdam's incredible history and its notable sites, monuments and art installations. I requested to see as much as possible and we covered the entire city center, on foot; in about 6 hours. It's really something to feel that confident and relaxed in a foreign city!! Olga was my best friend for a day... and I'll never forget her or beautiful Amsterdam!
