What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host to discover Amsterdam’s top attractions, its most stunning architecture and impressive markets, historic buildings and most famous neighbourhoods - all through a local lens of course!Read more +

Choose which of the city’s top attractions you’d most like to see, or let your local create a bespoke experience that includes all of the must-see attractions as well as the hidden local spots that are just around the corner. 

Discover iconic landmarks like Museumplein and the Anne Frank House, but also discover unique local neighbourhoods like arty Jordaan and the spots nearby that only locals know about! 

Enjoy some authentic local street food - taste herring from a traditional street food cart, bitterballen (a delicious deep fried crispy meatballs) and poffertjes (fluffy mini pancakes). Or if you’d prefer, let your local take you to an authentic restaurant where you can try traditional dishes how they’re supposed to be! 

Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Amsterdam that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love. 


What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality 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. 

Your local 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’ll visit famous attractions, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, restaurants, and spots that are loved by locals, and that you wouldn’t find in a guidebook. 


How This Benefits You

With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with London and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.

Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a Londoner.

See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.

Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Russian, Indonesian, Malay, Arabic and many other languages so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.

Perfect choice

Olga took us on a three hour walking tour of Amsterdam. Despite the ever-present rain we saw sights and lived the real Amsterdam that no other tour could have given us. Olga was not only highly knowledgeable about the city, she was fun and funny, a joy to be with. Her tour was catered to our interests and the fact that we had been to Amsterdam before so it was all new to us. When we come back to Amsterdam, Olga will be our first contact to show us more of Amsterdam that we couldn't see any other way except with her.

Exceptional host!

Anna made my time in Amsterdam informative and enjoyable, customized to how I wanted to see the city. She was warm and friendly and made my time in a new city feel absolutely incredible! I would highly recommend Anna as a host for solo travelers and groups alike!

Professional tour

Olga is very professional. She had planned the 2 day tour so I could see the highlights of the city. I also enjoyed very much our little chats. She is a lot of fun and I recommend her highly.


Woordje van dank !

Claire, dank je wel voor de drie onvergetelijke uren die we in Amsterdam met jou mochten doorbrengen. Wat we vooral konden smaken, was het feit dat je voorafgaandelijk aan het eigenlijke bezoek polste naar onze interesses en voorkeuren. Je hield hiermee perfect rekening en bezorgde ons alzo een onvergetelijke middag. Amsterdam - door jouw ogen !!! We zien elkaar ongetwijfeld nog eens weer en breien er een mooi vervolgverhaal aan want door jou heeft Amsterdam ons hart een beetje gestolen. Voor ons was je als gids, maar ook als mens een "Amsterdams monument" ! Je maakt gewoon deel uit van deze stad en weet dit op een boeiende, hartstochtelijke wijze te verwoorden. Tot ziens !
