Welcome to Amsterdam

Welcome to Amsterdam

The city that has something to offer for everybody. From the medieval centre with it's narrow streets and leaning houses and the picturesque 17th C canal ring (a World Heritage site) to the newly created islands of IJburg. From small art galleries and a lively street art scene to the famous Rijksmuseum. From small artisan shops to street markets and high end shopping streets. From cozy little cafés to a vibrant night life and music scene. From streetfood and Dutch cuisine to gourmet restaurants.

With so much on offer, you might feel overwhelmed with choice, and that’s where I, Monique, come in. I am a licensed tour guide for Amsterdam and the Netherlands. I offer private tours for couples, families, friends or colleagues.
For the first time visitor to Amsterdam I recommend an introduction tour of the city. During this tour you will be able to get your bearings in the city which will help you to enjoy the rest of your stay even more.

Not your first time in Amsterdam? As your private local guide of Amsterdam I can create a tour tailored to your personal wishes. To give you some ideas:
I can take you on a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter or the Jordaan area. We can take a bicycle tour of the city, or in the surrounding countryside.
For art lovers I offer an introduction tour of the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh museum.

Nowadays you can find a lot of information online. But you don’t always have the energy to check it all out. How do you know you're not missing out? Of course, you can find tours offered by one of the many platforms. But how do you know whether it's a good fit? I offer a personal experience, with a customized tour and a flexible starting time. Start from your hotel in the city centre or from the (river)cruise terminal in Amsterdam. My tours are sustainable walking- or bicycle tours. There are no hidden costs.
