What you can expect

Join me on a walking tour where you'll catch a glimpse into the Golden Ages of Amsterdam. This journey back in time is possible thanks to its well-preserved buildings. Still standing and in impeccable conditions since the 17th century!

Stroll along beautiful streets and canals and learn about the unique houses that give Amsterdam its distinguished look and atmosphere up until this day. I'll tell you all about the Northern Renaissance style and the use of different materials.

Along the way, you'll see the former town hall and the architectural wonder, the famous 'Nieuwe Kerk' in the popular Dam area. Get to know the unique style of northern baroque architect Hendrick de Keyser, I will tell you all about him! Of course, I'll also give you insights about the different world-famous canal house facades, but most importantly how the Dutch were able to build all of those glorious structures on the swampy ground.

On the route, I will help you spot hidden gems & places of architectural uniqueness that only locals know of!

If there is any other place or architectural building you want to explore, just let me know and I will customize this tour 100% to your wishes!

See you soon!

I grew up in a village just outside of Amsterdam and moved to the city when I was 18 to study social sciences and european studies. I loved living here; especially all the fine culture that this city has to offer. After graduating from the University of Amsterdam I spent some time working in a great variety of fields such as science, music, spirituality and art, which eventually led me into tour guiding. This allows me to share my knowledge of the city and it's culture with other people."
