What you'll do

Mention “Amsterdam” anywhere in the world and people immediately think of drugs, Heineken and the red light district. Few are aware that the city harbours a wealth of romantic tales and secret places, all awaiting discovery by curious travellers like yourself. Join me on a stroll through these pockets of stillness, and learn about the rich history, art and stories that remind us of our shared need for love.

Your journey begins in front of the medieval city gate, a few steps away from Amsterdam’s only sculptural dedication to love. It’s a popular area, and yet within minutes you’ll be basking in the silence of a hidden courtyard, the first on our journey of intimacy and human feeling that will include, among other sensory experiences, a visit to an enchanting secret garden, captivating views of romantically significant parts of the cityscape, and an introduction to the delicate scent of trees that everyone notices but no one really sees, all accompanied by stories that speak to the heart of love and longing and make Amsterdam a place about people.

This walk is ideal for anyone who journeys with an open heart and likes to know what gives each place its special atmosphere.
Other things to note
Unfortunately, complete silence isn’t always possible; it’s a popular city.

It was only five years ago that I finally understood what made Amsterdam such a romantic city. I had been away for years, travelling the world in fulfilment of a dance career that took me to over 25 countries. When I returned, I saw the city as if for the first time. Amsterdam has such an outsized history that it's easy to overlook how intimate it is at the same time, and how it embraces you in that intimacy if you know where to look. I fell in love with it and began finding out more about the place I now call home. It’s been my mission ever since to share my knowledge with curious-minded travellers from around the world.

I, your host and romantic guide, look forward to enriching your experience of Amsterdam.

My boyfriend and I actually opted for the romantic boat tour instead of the walking tour and it was amazing! I am certain that the walking tour would have been wonderful as well but it didn't work out for our schedule :) Rocco is kind, passionate, and loves to tell stories. He offered endless prosecco, a variety of foods, and even little things like blankets to keep us warm on the boat. The group size is small which is great for this kind of tour. My boyfriend and I agreed this was the highlight of our Amsterdam trip!

It was a great experience and Rocco was an amazing host. His knowledge about Amsterdam is quite good. Whether it is food or other places of interest, he is like ask Google of Amsterdam. We walked around some popular and some not so famous points, but the stories were interesting and informative

Loved listening to tales of romance from Rocco, a warm-hearted and kind story teller. The hidden and peaceful areas in Amsterdam were the perfect backdrop for these love stories. Great and enjoyable tour! Thank you, Rocco!

Nous avions sélectionné ce Romantic tour sans trop savoir à quoi s'attendre...et lá avec Rocco, nous avons découvert de jolies histoires et surtout des petits endroits paradisiaques loin du bruit de la vie trépidante d'Amsterdam. Je recommande à vous tous cette visite qui a satisfait toute la famille. Très bon travail de la part de Rocco.

I HIGHLY recommend taking this tour. Rocco has clearly put in so much effort to creating a truly interesting and memorable experience. We were exposed to places and information that we had not stumbled upon in three days of being in the city nor information we would have learned. I cannot stress enough how worthwhile this experience was!
