Overview

Welcome to Amsterdam! This charmingly walkable Dutch city oozes centuries of character and history. A local guide is waiting to take you on a private Amsterdam tour to uncover the best the city has to offer. With your guide you can walk canal-side on the streets of the city, seeing the historic sites, including the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House and even the red light district. Hop in a canal boat and see Amsterdam's unique architecture from the water. Apart from seeing the main sights, our private tour guides can take you to their favorite coffee house, art gallery or local neighbourhood boutiques. Or a day trip into the Dutch countryside! A local guide knows the the most unusual spots that a traveler might not see without their help. Choose a ToursByLocals guide and you will learn about the city's history, understand the intricacies of the canal system and experience the best of the city's cultural scene.

Elke is a true 5-star guide! We had a wonderful visit to the types of areas we requested and especially enjoyed the local windmill visit and talk with the miller. Elke is a superior guide. Thanks to her for a terrific day!

We had a great time with Gert in Amsterdam. He planned a custom tour for our layover that included a canal tour on his boat. We truly felt like locals and I highly recommend reserving a tour with Gert.
