Quality and entertainment are the most important features of What’s up Tours.
I was born and raised in a village near Amsterdam and have lived over 20 years in the city. Still, every day I find new details in the city and read and listen to stories about this great city.
I want to share and explore the city with you.
So if you want to understand that special vibe of Amsterdam: 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 travellers, the no-nonsense style in Dutch daily life, art, design and architecture, then let me show you Amsterdam and join me on a tour!
All tours can be custom made to your preference and in each part of the city. Bike tours are also possible at your request. Check below for interesting private tours and tours you can do without a guide.
E-mail me with the contact form and I will get in touch with you.

Private tour in historical centre
Basic tour: The Old Centre
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. Read more about Red Light District and China Town.
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. Read more about Amsterdam Canal Houses.
Private tour in Amsterdam Quarter
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.
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.
