Amsterdam - During the first half of the tour you will learn about the history of Amsterdam and how it became the most liberal city in the world. We will check out a number of iconic buildings, including the oldest building in town (the Old Church) with right next to it the Red Light windows and adjacent to the windows a kindergarden. One could argue this is basically Amsterdam on a poststamp. After learning how Amsterdam became the world capital for gay marriage, recreational drug use, prostitution, abortion and euthanesia we'll take the ferry accros the river IJ towards the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam North. The NDSM wharf is the location of the former shipping wharf where container ships used to be fabricated until it went bankrupt in the 80s. Nowadays it's an underground hotspot for local artists. It's the hippest, most happening art scene in town. It is the most secret hidden gem of Amsterdam and a must-see for anyone who is interested in local art scenes. We'll also check out loads of extraordinary pop-up art, street art and graffiti tags. After that we will take the ferry back to the city center and conclude the tour with a cool beverage.
Amsterdam - We will explore the centre of Amsterdam looking for hidden gems, quiet small canals, nice cafes and interesting scenery. I will photograph you and your family or friends along the way, and, if you want, I will give you some advice how to take your own amazing pictures and share some interesting background stories about some of the canal houses. If you haven't been on a photo shoot before or if you are camera conscious, don't worry, I will help you look natural and feel comfortable in front of the camera. If you are a bigger group, feel free to contact me as well.

Amsterdam - We will meet under the Water Tower near Cafe Restaurant Amsterdam. I live right around the corner and will tell you a little about the neighborhood. After that we will take 10-15 minutes to make sure everyone is comfortable on their bike. Our first stop is Amsterdam’s most iconic windmill. From there we head to Westerpark and check out its beautiful art sculptures. Just behind Westerpark we'll visit a neighborhood called Spaarndammerbuurt. It is famous for its architectural style called The Amsterdam School, which greatly inspired Gaudí. Next we will visit the Houthavens (the former Lumber Port) which is currently under transition from an industrial and polluting part of town into a sustainable residential area. From there we'll take the ferry over the river IJ and head to the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam-North. We'll see loads of street art, graffiti and pop-up art from local prospective artists. Crossing back over the river IJ we will head to a completely untouched part of the old city. There we will see the canals and old canal houses in their authentic setting without so many people around. Finally, we'll head back to Westerpark and end the tour with a refreshing drink.

Amsterdam - We are going on a treasure hunt! Similar to metal detecting where objects are found on land using a metal detector, magnet fishing is about finding metal objects in water using strong magnets. Have you always imagined what could be at the bottom of a lake near where you live? There have been interesting finds by people who have been curious enough to tie a magnet at the end of a rope to answer this – many of them were very surprised with what they have found. Magnet fishing in our canals is one of the greatest outdoor experiences one can have. To throw out your magnet and to see what you pull out feels so exciting. It is unbelievable what metal objects you dig up from our canals. Keys, jewels, warattributes, pistols, knives, axes, parts of bikes, cars, you name it, I saw it getting dragged out of our waters. We will meet in the centre near one of our famous bridges and I will talk you trough our beautiful history while I hand you all a strong magnet with a rope attached, we trow out our magnets and we're off! This is not only an awesome activity to enjoy, you also help clean our canals, for which the city of Amsterdam is forever grateful!

Amsterdam - I will be waiting for you outside the West India House (West Indisch Huis, Herenmarkt 97, see next page for route) where the John Adams Institute is located. It is at this important site where we will make a start with what the 17th century exploration voyages would eventually lead to: the Dutch acknowledgment of the American Independence on July 4, 1776 being the first oversees nation doing so. In its historic vicinity we will immerse ourselves in Amsterdam’s 17th century charm, including step gable architecture along the canals, drafting a context of the flourishing era of European and worldly expansion and the subsequent shaping of America. From here we’ll be headed for the IJ harbor, walking along the water where Amsterdam was born in the year 1275 while I'll introduce you to the 17th century story lines and characters of the first Dutch exploration voyages, carrying French-, German-, Dutch- and English speaking crew alike, leading to the discovery of Manna Hatta in 1609 (Manhattan, NYC.) Next, we'll make our way to the 15th century Schreierstoren, the first Amsterdam defense tower where the wives of the voyagers must have desperately been on the lookout for their return.
