What you can expect

Join me on a private Amsterdam experience! This is a great tour to get a good introduction into Amsterdam, exclusively for you and your friends.

I'll show you the beautiful 17th century Canal Ring (UNESCO World Heritage), we'll pass by the Anne Frank House where I would like to tell you about Amsterdam in WWII.

During the tour we'll stop by places which were important to Rembrandt, do some cheese tasting, admire modern and classic art in a wing of the Amsterdam Museum, visit cozy courtyards and experience lively China Town.

In my favorite part of the city, the old city center, I'll tell great stories about the oldest streets, building, the tolerant Red Light District and current changes in the area.

We'll visit my former window brothel (in the most narrow alley of Amsterdam) to hear more about the old city center & Red Light District. Let me know if you would like to personalize this tour, it's always possible.

I was born in Amsterdam, started working as an actor, after which I traveled all over the world. During my travels I've worked as a tour guide in Brasil, Belgium, Ireland and the Netherlands.
The last 10 years I live with my family in the old city center of Amsterdam. Since 4 years I give tours in Amsterdam.

I specialize in giving tours in the old city center of Amsterdam and the Red Light District. Making people enthusiastic about my town is one of my specialties. Every tour is an adventure, with 100% customer satisfaction.

My grandfather used to own one of the first bars in the old city center for colored sailors. I love telling stories about multicultural Amsterdam (most multicultural city in the world!), the 17th century, Red Light as the old harbor area, second world war, tolerance towards religion, the Dutch soft drugs policy, prostitution and current changes in the neighborhood.

The Red Light District is one of the most interesting and beautiful neighborhoods in the world, but it has a bad reputation. It somehow became my mission to show visitors the many beautiful sides of the area.

This area has some of the best restaurants, bars, museums, stores and nightlife of Amsterdam.

Due to a project of the city council many window brothels and coffee shops are being closed. Due to this project, creatives (like myself) are able to rent these former window brothels. During my tours we always visit my former window brothel.

Well known 5* tourguide in the area, no tour is the same. Sometimes locals invite us inside, or we have a small cheese or chocolate tasting or other adventure, it all depends on the wishes of the group.
I mastered the talent of being able to adapt to the wishes of my guests.

I love to welcome you in Amsterdam, please contact me if you would like to have a personalized tour!"
