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!

  • Discover what contemporary Dutch style looks like and how it is unique

  • Allow your host to tailor the experience to fit your taste, budget and what you’d like to shop for

  • Buy clothing, homeware, and keepsakes that are classically Dutch or contemporary - up to you!

  • Shop like a local and enjoy the distinct energy of the respective neighborhood where you do your shopping

  • Visit concept stores, local designers’ unique boutiques, vintage shops, and niche food stores (we even hear there’s one dedicated only to avocados - yum!)

This experience will be personalized to you!

Our host was charming and attentive. The pace of the tour was just right and we got to see places we would not have found on our own. Well worth the experience!

Informational and engaging!

Our tour with Anna was perfect! She contacted us prior to our visit and she had a great plan prepared. As our day unfolded, we found that our interests changed and she created paths and conversations to follow our new ideas! She is a knowledgeable and engaging guide!
