The quickest way to get to know Amsterdam is to go for a walk through the heart of the city, so come along with me as I show you around and get you acquainted with this beautiful place I call home. We’ll meet at the main entrance of Café de Schreierstoren and start our discovery tour from there. Then we’ll mosey on to the area of the famous Red Light district, one of Amsterdam’s most intriguing neighborhoods that look so different between day and night, and see hidden places along the way. We’ll leisurely walk through famous squares and cool side streets, from Nieuwmarkt to the Dam Square. Along the way, we’ll be strolling past the Flower Market where you can find everything you need to grow the prettiest tulips. For a local gem not known to many outsiders, I’ll bring you to the serene Begijnhof garden, a peaceful oasis in the middle of the city. We’ll then drop by the vibrant Rembrandt Square, where we can take a break and have a chat over coffee. For your further stay, I’ll share some insider tips with you. We’ll end this discovery walk with fun memories and photos as we say goodbye at a convenient spot where you can continue to hang out. WANT ANOTHER TIME SLOT THAT SUITS YOU BETTER? Just let us know!
I've been living in the Netherlands for about 17 years, first in Rotterdam and later, with a detour via Hamburg, in Amsterdam. I love being active in my city, seeing all its developments and discovering new corners every day. I'm part of a team of passionate local guides hosting unforgettable "Connect Experiences". My passion for connecting travelers with the heartbeat of Amsterdam and with each other has made me the experienced local guide I'm now.
