Explore hidden Streets with friendS

A fantastic tour around the areas of Amsterdam I would have otherwise missed. Sprinkling of history and culture, and the charm of Amsterdam was delightful. I recommend you take this tour!” (Jem lives in Glenelg, Australia, August 2022)

Escape the crowds and explore tranquil places in a historic neighbourhood. See Amsterdam with the eyes of a local!

We will show you more than the usual: iconic buildings and hidden courtyards. While strolling through the maze of little streets we will tell you stories spanning the centuries from Rembrandt until today.

Starting in the center you will learn about the origins of Amsterdam. On our way to the local neighbourhood of Jordaan you will:

– discover more about the history of the canal belt and encounter magnificent buildings like the Royal Palace
– visit hidden courtyards that housed sailors` widows and elderly people on charity in 1650 – one of the first social housing projects in the world
– explore the distinct lay-out and see the difference that this neighbourhood shows compared to the canal belt
– find out why both locals and art community fought to preserve the special character of the area when investors and the city tried to remodel it in the 1970s

Let us show you our Jordaan: a living village inside the city
