Hi there, nice to meet you, and welcome to AmsterdamPersonalized.
For more then 10 years I organize press tours for international journalists on art, design, history, architecture, food and whatever their readers want to know about Amsterdam. During that time I learned the city in and out.
Some years ago a journalist asked me to offer these tours to his readers and AmsterdamPersonalized was born. Like with press tours, I love designing bespoke tours based on the interests and wishes of my guests. It can be a family tour with kids from toddlers or teens that want to explore the city. It can be a couple on a culinary expedition in the city. If you are with your friends and rather cycle, we will discover Amsterdam by bike. You are an elderly couple interested in Amsterdam’s heritage and do not want to walk too much? Rather go with private driver or boat? We will arrange it for you.
There is one condition however: we always go beyond Google!
Why I love tours
I love to live in the beautiful city of Amsterdam and to host visitors, show them around, and introduce them to my friends.
I started doing tours working with international journalists when I was working at the Amsterdam Tourist Board, doing press tours and helping them creating magazine articles, tv-shows or radio programs. I loved it so much I founded AmsterdamPersonalized now also doing private and corporate tours.
I am honoured that my tours have been featured in more then 250 international publications: The Times, Travel+Leisure, L’Express, Business Traveler, New York Times, Dagens Nyheter, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bell’Europa, Arte TV, Bayrischer Rundfunk Radio, Echappees belles and many more.
