Full description
Amsterdam is famous for its trademarks such as bicycles, tolerance, prostitution, coffee shops and much more. During this tour, you will cover many facts and figures, keeping it real like a local and experiencing every topic through the eyes of an "Amsterdammer" who is living it.

Throughout this tour you will be introduced to a vast array of characters, including Ruud, (Amsterdam's very own captain Jack Sparrow), Alex (one of Amsterdam's cycle-therapists), Tamara, (an Amsterdammer who is raising twins in the city) and Ari (a local entrepreneur and unofficial mayor of Amsterdam).

Step by step, you will attain a deeper connection with the city. Discover how the locals live, how the history of the city lives within them, and how they individually differ. Together, you will find out the people that make Amsterdam.
