Your hosts

Born in the Netherlands to Italian parents I’ve always had a curiosity to analyse what makes Dutch history, identity & culture unique. With a degree in Urban Geography, and after working as a Geography teacher I decided to share my extensive knowledge of the city and its unique liberal culture with visitors and locals who want to learn more about Amsterdam in a fun way. In 2016 I started my own walking tour company offering a unique story-telling tour that combines sightseeing with history and cultural insights. Sam, Joran, Marcella, Joy and the rest of my team of super local guides look forward not only to showing the most interesting places in Amsterdam, but also to sharing their personal local knowledge with you and give you the best 2,5 hours you will spend in Amsterdam!

Where you'll be

Every guide and every tour are unique so this can vary, but after starting at the Old Church usually we all explore the oldest part of the city, today's Red Light District, Chinatown, Nieuwmarkt Square, The Jewish Quarter, Dam Square, The Royal Palace, ...and much more! Walking along the most beautiful canals we will also see and discuss the unique architecture of the canal houses and discover hidden places you would not easily find by yourself
