What you'll do

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 & 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 & encounter magnificent buildings like the Royal Palace
- visit hidden courtyards that housed sailors` widows and elderly people on charity in 1650 – 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 & 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
Other things to note

Originally from Germany we have been living in Amsterdam since 2000. Over the years we acquired broad knowledge about its fascinating history and discovered countless unique sites in and around this special city. We like to keep exploring and follow the changes in social and urban development.

Turning passion into profession we became tour guides as we love sharing our fascination for Amsterdam with travellers from all over the world. While other tours focus on the mainstream areas downtown we would like you to discover more than the usual and experience "The Amsterdam Feeling"!

Christian geeft zijn tour alsof we al jaren bevriend zijn. Persoonlijk en zeer begaan met de stad. Samen met Michael 2 aanwinsten voor de Stad Amsterdam. We gaan ze zeker nog eens ontmoeten, maar dan in Barcelona! Dank voor alles en tot snel. Daam&Steff

This tour with Michael was extremely engaging: full of history and discoveries of hidden spots in the Jordaan. Halfway through our tour on an extremely chilly afternoon, Michael surprised me with a thermos of hot tea and homemade holiday cookies baked by his mother in Germany. What a delight! I highly recommend taking a tour with Michael and Christian!

Amsterdam abseits des ganzen Touristentrubels. Obwohl man in einer Großstadt unterwegs war hat es sich viel entspannter angefühlt als erwartet. Wir haben viele interessante Dinge erfahren und schöne versteckte Ecken gesehen. Vielen Dank!

Wir waren heute zu zweit als Paar mit Michael unterwegs und haben einen tollen Einblick in sein Amsterdam und darüber hinaus noch in sein Leben bekommen. Er ging auf all unsere Fragen ein und passte die Tour auch ein bisschen an uns an. Leider war es sehr heiß und schwül und so waren die drei Stunden am Ende echt für alle Beteiligten sehr anstrengend.

Er macht einen auf die kleinen Dinge aufmerksam, die man im Trubel der Stadt schnell übersieht und schlägt immer den Bogen von der Vergangenheit ins Hier und Jetzt. Wer wirklich etwas über die Stadt erfahren und nicht einem Regenschirm und 30 Leuten im Stechschritt hinterherjagen will, der ist bei Cheistian in einer kleinen Gruppe super aufgehoben. Wir würden Dich immer wieder buchen - Christian viel Erfolg weiterhin!!! Herzlichst Anita Renate Gerlinde und Christine
