I was born and raised in a village near Amsterdam. I have lived over 20 years in the city. I have worked as a professional tour guide in Amsterdam and Spain.
Let me help you explore the city via this website and via private tour in Amsterdam.
I specialize in the stories of Amsterdam and its people: the openness and directness of its sailors, prostitutes and politicians, the tolerance of religion and drugs, the fever of free trade, the sense of adventure of its pirates and travelers, the no-nonsense style in Dutch daily life, art, design and architecture.

Touring the Medieval Center
Hearing stories from the city’s rich history, you’ll get a deep understanding of that special vibe of Amsterdam: the openness and directness of its sailors and prostitutes in the Red Light District, the tolerance of religion and drugs, the spirit of free trade, the arrival of the Chinese and the no-nonsense style in Dutch life, art and architecture.

Touring the 17th century Canal Ring
Walk along the famous Amsterdam Canal Ring: Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht Canal. Find out more about the architecture of the city palaces along the canals and how the ‘new rich’ merchant families built their canal houses to mirror their financial and societal success in the city.

Custom Tours in Amsterdam
Guided Tour in De Pijp
De Pijp neighbourhood is bustling with people, bikes, terraces, restaurants and bars, mostly around the big Amsterdam Albert Cuyp daily market. The South side of De Pijp hides some of Amsterdam’s most characteristic fantastical architecture from the 1920s known as the Amsterdam School. A diverse area to explore. Read more about De Pijp.
Guided Tour in Jordaan
The Jordaan Quarter lies along the Prinsengracht canal. Walk the narrow streets of this 17th century area and enter into the courtyards hidden behind the charming facades. Listen to the stories of the Jordaan: stories of immigration, poverty, social unrest, reflected in the Jordaan folk music and culture. Read more about Amsterdam Jordaan Quarter.
