Your local Amsterdam tour guides


After finishing his bachelor degree in tourism, Tijs [pronounced as ‘Tise’] worked at the Amsterdam Tourist Office; advising visitors from all over the world. A passion was born!

Over the years Tijs collected an impressive array of books on Amsterdam; Its history, architecture, art, and the citizen's liberal, straightforward and pragmatic way of life.

Meanwhile he keeps up with the local media for the city's recent developments.


Although Edgar spent most of his life in Amsterdam, he wanted to understand more about this city. Why is it so different from others; with such an astonishing variety of people, cultures and architecture all thrown into a chaotic but perfect mix.

So Edgar started studying the History of Art at the University of Amsterdam. The more he learned, the more beautiful and complex Amsterdam became. Now Edgar works in tourism and writes about art.
