there is now going to be a drive in coffee shop in the sloterdijk area ( which is a major train station here in the Netherlands)

Now of course with walking tours seeing a drive through coffeeshop doesnt make any sense, so lucky for us, we organize bus tours as … Read more

Finding an appropriate holiday destination to suit your needs can be stressful. Where to go, when to go, what’s going on while you’re there and so on. I’m going to try and answer all of the above and assist you in making a decision that will forever be memorable.

Amsterdam’s high seasons when the most tourists decide to holiday here are summer and winter.

Die Sommerferien nähern sich dem Ende; die meisten Kinder sind wieder in der Schule; der Altag trudelt langsam wieder ein…

Hier, in Amsterdam, genießen wir die Spätsommerhitze und gutes Wetter. Filmfestivals in Open Air Kinos, schwüle Abende in Amsterdam Roest, oder ein spontaner Abstecher zu den Foodhallen – der Tag füllt sich schnell, mit so vielen Sachen die man machen könnte.

The Hidden Gem Coffeeshops of Amsterdam

I personally, have managed to visit my fair share of coffeeshops during my time living in Amsterdam and have come across a few which stood out to me for certain reasons. Without further ado, let me tell you about my favorite spots in Amsterdam to go to hang out and smoke some of Amsterdam’s finest ganja.… Read more

So , after a interesting and fun Valentines day weekend our get your guide web page was finally updated with some lovely photos from last summers tour. This of course got me thinking as to how many people did we have on our walking tours last year in Amsterdam. It seems like a blur and with 8 tour guides helping out to get people around Amsterdam, it almost feels like we´ve had only 200 people on our tours. Luckily, I couldnt have been more wrong. We´ve had 2,610 people on our tours! This doesn´t count the people who have joined … Read more
