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 and Italian.

 

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

Hey! I’m Laurence a Dutch student living his best live in Amsterdam! In my short life I have lived in curaçao and Hong Kong, and traveled far and wide, however never have I seen a place so ridiculously beautiful as Amsterdam. The city has a mesmerizing esthetic. When it’s foggy it looks like a ghost town, but when it clears up it turns in to a vibrant village and that has always managed to put a smile on my face. Not only the architecture, culture but also the people really make Amsterdam the way it is. As a student I’m able to show you the real ins and outs, secret bars, cutest shops and the places to be. Never in my life have I met ANYONE that has been to Amsterdam and didn’t love it. Pleas let me be your host and local guide in this one of a kind piece of land!

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.
