Local

Originally from Germany we have been living in Amsterdam since 2000. Over the years we have acquired broad knowledge about its fascinating history and discovered countless unique sites in and around this special city. We like to keep exploring and follow the changes in social and urban development.

Turning passion into profession we became a tour guide as we love sharing our fascination for Amsterdam with travellers from all over the world. While other tours focus on the mainstream areas downtown we would like you to discover more than the usual and experience "The Amsterdam Feeling"!
