Meet the Free Walking Tour guides from Amsterdam


After being a running guide for 10 years, I found out my legs can also walk. Born in the 60s, so really a part of Amsterdam history myself. Walk (or run) along with me and step beyond the curtains of this open-air theatre I call my home. Just open the curtains and enjoy the show!


Born and raised in Amsterdam, which is pretty unique these days. I started as a history teacher, but being a traveler myself, I wanted to work with other travelers. The Free Walking Tour Amsterdam is now my classroom, so what are you waiting for? Stop reading right now and hurry to the Dam!


Welcome to my hometown! Let’s go downtown and I’ll show you how to eat a ‘kroket’ without burning your mouth, which coffeeshops to visit, but most importantly how to avoid the many tourist traps. As we say in the Netherlands, let’s have a ‘gezellig’ time in Amsterdam 🙂!
