Private Guides in Amsterdam

  • The perfect way to see a city will always be through its locals. So why not have one as your private guide? Our hosts offer tons of city tours for easily accessible prices to almost all budgets out there and a great variety of activities. Today, not only are our private guides available to all, but almost always a necessity to make the most out of a trip. So why get a private guide in Amsterdam?
  • Kickstart Your Trip in only 40 minutes
    From those who just starts traveling to those who have been traveling since they were toddlers, almost everyone has experienced the slight excitement that comes with the unknown of a new city. Which neighborhood shouldn't I miss? Where can I eat best? Will the waiter expect a tip? How do I buy a ticket for the train/metro?
  • The amounts of written travel guides on these topics and many more are endless, but the second they are published they are already outdated by one second. Getting a private guide in Amsterdam means saving hours googling, searching for information desks, and a lot of stress. With anything as simple as a 40 minute activity with your Amsterdam private guide you could have all the information you need for the rest of your trip and a new acquaintance! Yes, it really is that simple!

  • Experience the Full Potential of Amsterdam
    If you discovered an incredible restaurant, a very cute park, or a hidden gem of a museum you'd want to keep it to yourself, right? The fact that these are hidden places also means that most travel guides and travel agencies will usually skip them to be able to cover all the other main attractions in Amsterdam. By getting a private guide in Amsterdam you are getting exclusive access to information that only true locals have, which not only means discovering hidden treasures in the city, but might also mean being able to explore areas that are not overwhelmingly crowded by tourists. Make sure you get to the best things to do in Amsterdam with our guides!
  • Don't Settle for the supermarket Stroopwafels
    If you're planning a trip to Amsterdam it is likely that you've already been introduced to Stroopwafels, the heavenly caramel cookie creation that Dutchies have perfected over the years. These pieces of heaven turned cookies can be found everywhere in Amsterdam but do not let them fool you! Supermarket Stroopwafels have nothing on warm, just-made, soft goodies that only the most local markets can provide you with. With these come endless other goodies that typically only locals know about, and the best way not to miss out is to have recommendations by the most experienced Stroopwafel eaters: your own private Amsterdam guide.

Peigi Muhammad

Istanbul’s Nightlife Tour: Local Hotspots & Culture

Muhammad is a very kind person that has been living in Istanbul for many years as a student. He is young and knows what to do and where to go to have some fun. He made us feel welcome and we enjoyed our time with him.

Stephanie Bassel

Paris Favourite Food tour: the 10 Tastings

Bassel was a fantastic guide! He was interesting, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. We had several tours on our vacation, and I feel like we connected with Bassel in a way we didn't with some other guides. He was a real, full-dimensional person that we got to know. Paris is a big city and French people, while very welcoming in their way, can be a bit intimidating. Getting to know Bassel over the three hour tour really made me feel like we got to experience France like a true Parisian. We only had about two days to explore Paris, including visiting big tourist attractions such as the Louvre, Eiffel tower, and the Catacombs. These bigger attractions understandably make you feel like a tourist, but our food tour with Bassel, was an authentic experience that really made me feel like I connected to the city. He sprinkled in a bit of history as we explored and tasted the various food, which was all amazing by the way. Perfect guide for this tour, I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a local.

Christa Mischa

Paris Kickstart Tour with a Local

We arrived in Paris from London around 4 pm and took a walking "kickstart" tour with Mischa around 5:45 pm which was the perfect way to get acclimated to the city and kick off our 2 days in Paris. Mischa was very friendly and knowledgeable and customized our tour to hit all of the highlights - we walked from Notre Dame all the way to the Champs Elysees and saw all the sights along the way including the Louvre, Tuileries Garden, etc. Great tour and we highly recommend!
