What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes, and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see well-known sights, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things, and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

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. ☺️

The most enjoyable day

My wife and I were privileged to have Anna as our guide for 8 hours in Amsterdam. We enjoyed visiting some incredible museums, walking through beautiful areas of the city we wouldn’t have known about, having morning tea and lunch in spectacular (not expensive) locations frequented by locals and hearing about the rich history of the city. Anna was punctual, courteous, engaging and extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the city. It was our pleasure spending time with her.

Great time in Amsterdam

Claire was very knowledgeable and took us on a "local" tour. pointing out several things we would never know. Her recommendations for shops and restaurants were fantastic. She is an excellent guide that we would recommend to anyone. Thanks Claire!!

Olga was amazing! Totally love her

Olga made the perfect itinerary for me my husband and the kids. She was so friendly, smiling all the time and the 8 hours walking tour pass by so fast and we don’t even feel tired at all. She brought us for lunch at De Plantage and it was just as perfect as the itinerary. Thank you Olga for making us a wonderful day in Amsterdam.
