Architecture Tours Amsterdam shows you historical and contemporary (Amsterdam) architecture and urban development. You can choose from or be inspired by the tours on the website. Or you can have your own idea that you let me carry out. This can vary from, for example, the old city centre to the 1920-1940 belt, to a specific new-build area or a transformation area. All tours are tailored to your interests and wishes. Every area and every building has its own story. Together, these stories form the special Amsterdam whole.

Would you like a package with lunch or dinner? We can help you find a suitable and available location.

We can also arrange guided tours of Amsterdam museums: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Amsterdam Museum and the Hermitage. We also take requests for (architectural) tours in Rotterdam or elsewhere in Netherlands.

Our tours are substantive and have an open atmosphere. They are given in Dutch, English or German, all year round.
