What you’ll do

Get your retail fix with one of our hosts on a personalized shopping experience in Amsterdam. 

With a city local by your side, you can be assured of finding the perfect stores to suit your style, taste and budget. As a city renowned for its creativity and quirk, shopping in Amsterdam is not only a pleasure, but a marvel.

Browse the ultra-trendy Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets), a treasure trove of concept stores, vintage shops and niche outlets.

Alternatively, head to the luxury boutiques in the grand Oud Zuid district, or the eclectic Haarlemmerdijk, where the best up-and-coming designers are making their mark on the fashion scene.

As you explore, chat your host about Dutch design and the latest trends in Amsterdam. They’ll know just the place to take you depending on what you like, and you’ll have the ultimate shopping buddy. Win, win!
