Hi! As an Italian native speaker, being accustomed to the natural beauties of the country, I fell in love with Amsterdam the first time I set foot in this city, in the summer of 2017. I immediately realised that there were more treasures to be discovered in Amsterdam than the primary touristic places, so I spent a lot of time exploring every corner of the city and found even hidden charming places which I passioned share with friends and family. From that moment on, I have dedicated my time to guide international and Italian tourists around the city of Amsterdam. This job satisfies me a lot, because I see people really enjoying the time we spend together. I’m a people person and I’m sensitive to people’s needs and emotions, therefore I’m able to provide them with an unique and personalised experience.

 

The languages that I speak are English, Italian.

 

Enough said, it’s time for you to experience it yourself!

Hi! I am Hany, originally from Egypt/Greece. I made my way around the world by living in Moscow for 6 years, England for 8 years, experienced diverse cultures. Looking for a new home, the freedom, open-mindness and positive vibes of Amsterdam pulled me here like a magnet. Experiencing multiple adventures since moving to Amsterdam in 2016, I locked the city into my heart. I love to talk about the history of Amsterdam with a mix of traditional historic’s an secret insider student-knowledge which might not be what you expect, of the city. Making connections with people from all over the world is what inspires me most as a Tour Guide. Meeting so many people in such a short time is a golden opportunity, to keep my language’s up. I am is specialized in: Russian, Arabic and English. Apart from my daily life as a Chef, I enjoy cycling through the rain daily and living a sport life style. Running as much as possible and working out in the Gym to make sure I survive the tours with you without any doping, excluding coffee of course ;))).

Hi there, I’m Teo! A freelance tour guide. I’m a Romanian trilingual who moved here after getting my Bachelors in Chinese language in Shenyang, China. Join me for a tour and I’ll show you why I fell in love with Amsterdam four years ago, the first time I came here, and why I kept coming back and eventually decided to move here altogether. You’ll be sure not to miss those must-see sights that everybody’s talking about, as well as places away from the beaten track, or hidden in plain sight, that even born-and-raised Amsterdamers don’t know about. With a background in music, architecture and linguistics, a passion for engaging stories and history, and a cat-like curiosity, Amsterdam resonates with me on so many different levels, and I can’t wait to share all that with you! Just be careful, you might end up wanting to stay here for good afterwards!

Tour Guide

Hi! I am Tadas, a freelance tour guide. Even though I’ve been born and raised in Lithuania, I always had a thirst for traveling and understanding different cultures. Long story short, it turned out that Amsterdam became one of my stops and most likely will be one for a while. My relationship with the city began when I found its gem – Rijksmuseum. I’ve been so surprised and stunned by the exhibition displayed there, that later I’ve visited the museum for more than ten times just to explore every corner of the place. Till this day I am still addicted to the story of the Netherlands and have a drive to find out everything I can and unveil all its secrets. Join me in the tours and I will share with you my findings!

The languages that I speak are English and Lithuanian.
