Kick-start your time in Amsterdam on a private 1.5-hour walking tour, and get all the insights you need for an awesome stay. Meet your local host at Centraal Station and walk through the city center to get answers to those burning questions that guidebooks and online sources don't provide.

Visit spots hidden among the main sights, and pass local markets, beautiful churches and multicultural district along the way. Your guide will give you inside knowledge and answer your questions, whether it is where to find the best local beer or best restaurants in town, what districts are up-and-coming or where to buy tickets for the Anne Frank House.

Get unique insights into daily life as you move from Centraal Station to St. Nicholas Church through Chinatown to the infamous Red Light District. Stop at the Bloemenmarkt to see the world's only floating flower market. Then, go to Dam Square, where notable monuments include the Royal Palace and National Monument. Experience the peaceful inner courts of the hidden Begijnhof, and end at a local café on Rembrandtplein.

Worth the €, True Local Guides

We had a snag with our requested start time, but Louke was communicative and we worked out a new time on our own. She was a great local guide. Very relaxed, laid back, and avoided the red light district with our 10-yr-old in tow. Ferry ride was nice addition, appreciated the local insights. Could be a little stronger on historic/technical info, but overall a wonderful walk with a local. We appreciated her point of view and would recommend this tour to others!

Fantastic personalised tour

Claudio was excellent! He asked us what aspects of Amsterdam interested us and tailored our tour accordingly. He told us lots of intersting background information on the origins of the city and its tolerance policies and there was ample opportunity for us to ask questions. Would thoroughly recommend a tour with Claudio as an introduction to Amsterdam.
