Our Team of Local Guides
We started Amsterdam Experiences as a way to share our passion for Amsterdam. We like to show people our city, through the eyes of a local. We organize high-quality private tours so you can explore the city in an exclusive way. We stay in close contact with you to ensure that your personal experience will be an unforgettable one.
We work with highly experienced, professional, and local guides who are sure to add a unique and personal touch to your visit to Amsterdam. Our friendly and knowledgeable guides will make you feel part of the city.
Our ever-expanding team of guides is an eclectic group of people – each with his/her own style. All our Group Experiences are English-speaking. Tours can also be held in Spanish, French, Portuguese, and French.
Hope to see you soon,
