Who We Are

Erik Adofo-Mensah

Founder of the Oranje Umbrella

Erik is the Founder and Manager Director of  the Oranje Umbrella. He received his Bachelor of Management (B.S.) from the University of Tampa, Florida, in 2007. His career includes successfully working as an investment service associate at international financial firm T.Rowe Price and as an assistant to the Director and Senior Vice-President of Human Resources at Sykes Enterprises. After many successful years there, Erik decided it was time to develop his own company focusing not just on exceeding basic customer satisfaction but also on increasing customer happiness.

He coordinates tours with the help of the other owners of the company – the other tour guides!


Our mission


To Create a better environment in Amsterdam. People come to our beautiful city all the time, and get high and visit the sex workers and then go home. This is not all Amsterdam has to offer. We need to show people there is a backstory to the city of Amsterdam, and that Dutch people are some of the friendliest and most open minded people in the world!



Coming to a city means more than getting drunk in a bar, and smoking a joint. There is a language, a culture , and a story that needs to be shared, and our guides share it, without scripts, truthfully, characteristically, and with a lot of class!
