    Welcome to Amsterdam. As proud Amsterdammer I love to show you around the city and show you the best spots in town. I am a historian so I can tell you a thing or two about the city as well. Hope to see you soon!

  • What you will see and do

    Walk through the historic center of Amsterdam starting at the oldest part of town in the Red Light District over the Dam square and over the famous canals visiting highlights of the city like Anne Frank house and trendy shopping area ‘negen straatjes’ and Begijnhof.

    I will tell you about the history of the city, old and present and show you some places only the locals know about.

    Extra bonus: you will experience local food like RAW herring, stroopwafel and bitterballen. Finally, since I am a singer I will sing live an Amsterdam song :)
